Shaq Performed ‘The Naked Man” In The Lakers & Suns Locker Room


We all know Shaquille O’Neal has a great sense of humor, that’s what we love him for, right?! His former coaches Phil Jackson and Alvin Gentry revealed that Shaq’s sense of humor actually involves a lot of nudity.

Phil Jackson shared one of Shaq’s stories in an interview.


Well, you know, numbers of times, he could crack a team up with humorous effects on the floor. There were times when he shocked us all in a practice situation, especially when he showed up nude with just his shoes on.


Alvin Gentry, Shaq’s coach during his time in Phoenix, revealed O’Neal used to enter the Suns locker room naked and prank teammates by engaging them in “Brazilian naked wrestling”.


“The thing that he did that he got to be notorious for is that, every few days or every week or so, he would decided that it was time for this Brazilian naked wrestling contest. You didn’t know who the chosen one was, but what would happen when you least expect it, this 7-foot, 310-pound guy would turn the corner, and he would be stark naked and he would run right at you full speed, grab you, he would take you to the floor and then he would do about five rollovers with you. And he would always tell our trainers who it was going to be, so they were always prepared for it, but you never knew who it was going to be.”
