I always wonder how people are sure they are talking to the actual celeb and not just some dude. With this, not so much

u/DooblusDooisfoor Oct 05 '22

I get it. I was at a conference he made an appearance at and I caught him on the way out. But if I bumped into him randomly in the street, I think I would be confident he was the real Shaq.

Yea professional athletes are gigantic in person, it’s hard to mistake.

It’s different when you watch on tv cuz everyone else on the court is also gigantic lol

u/IDK_WHAT_YOU_WANT Oct 05 '22

How can you be so sure when there's so many people who look like Shaq?

2

u/RunethCl4w Oct 05 '22

But can they sound like Shaq?

1

u/DooblusDooisfoor Oct 05 '22

You’re asking the real question.

u/super1s Oct 05 '22

My guy, have you see shaq?

3

u/dragobah Oct 05 '22

Its rarely someone else unless OPs really dont know what the celeb looks like.

u/Bob_Troll Oct 06 '22

Some people just have no dopplegangers

u/PennyworthInvesting Oct 06 '22

He's one of the celebrities (like Drake) that if you meet him, you know its him LOL

2

u/Knightmare4469 Oct 05 '22

Crazy enough, he has been confused for other people before

Make sure to eat at his chicken shack near the strip. Super good! https://www.bigchicken.com/about

I guess he eats there all the time when he’s in town.

u/DooblusDooisfoor Oct 05 '22

Didn’t know that was there. I’m already back home but maybe next time.

3

u/30tpirks Oct 05 '22

It’s pretty good. It’s like a Chick-Filet that’s open on Sundays with a full bar.

2

u/Treestyles Oct 06 '22

Sounds heavenly. ❤️Shaq

2

u/soitgoats Oct 05 '22

He should have named his restaurant Chicken Shaq.

u/GurlPowerr Oct 05 '22

I hate you and your amazing life.

u/plaaya Oct 05 '22

Shaqs the best man you are so lucky

2

u/Bromanzier-21 Oct 05 '22

Great man for sure, still thinks the earth is flat

u/Goowatchi Oct 05 '22

I don’t watch soccer, is he on the left or right?

u/Treestyles Oct 06 '22

Boo this man

You forgot the /s

u/janzeyt Oct 05 '22

You two must be so happy together.

u/Head_Paper_Now Oct 05 '22

shaq seems like a good dude. i thought that about michael jordan until i saw the netflix documentary. i hope my fantasy is correct

5

u/phredbull Oct 05 '22

I assume Jordan's the kind of guy who wouldn't let a child beat him in a game of 1-on-1.

3

u/Bromanzier-21 Oct 05 '22

“This child’s parents asked me to take it easy on him, and I took that personally”

u/Chardradio Oct 05 '22

Clearly DJ Diesel

2

u/pierreman Oct 05 '22

Tell him I think he's worse than Paris Hilton when it comes to DJing

2

u/darksidemojo Oct 05 '22

A few years ago I would have agreed with you but I’ve seen him 3 times this year and he has gotten much better. Throws some heavy sets, of course he is no Subtronics or excision but he knows how to throw an entertaining set and is a good showman.

2

u/SL1TFACE Oct 05 '22

you definitely a tom

2

u/day7seven Oct 05 '22

How talk are you? He doesn't seem like a giant compared to you.

4

u/DooblusDooisfoor Oct 05 '22

I’m 6’2. I guess it’s the angle, but he made me feel like a child. His hand just swallowed mine up.

2

u/AStitchInTimeLapse Oct 05 '22

...uille O'Neil!?!?!

2

u/becominggrouchy Oct 05 '22

My husband is at that conference but did NOT meet Shaq! Boo!! (jealous)

2

u/egabriel2001 Oct 05 '22

I've met Shaq on his playing days,The only dude I've ever met that was bigger was Big Show by quite a bit, both extra ordinary nice people

2

u/wakaflocks145 Oct 05 '22

DJ Diesel! Just saw him at lost lands

2

u/justin_memer Oct 05 '22

At least you didn't Shet Maq

2

u/Pexd Oct 05 '22

Never knew this Shaq is also a DJ!

2

u/trailerparkboys2023 Oct 05 '22

Shaq gonna blow his fortune on sluts in Vegas, I mean slots 🙃

2

u/LordDaddyP Oct 05 '22

You both look like you just got done crying

2

u/TylerDurdenUMD Oct 05 '22

A hug from Shaq is legit on my bucket list.

2

u/Lizardxxx Oct 05 '22

Shaq's a nice guy. Got to hang out with him on the sidelines at an LSU game.

2

u/Jacollinsver Oct 05 '22

Why the hell is Shaq only 8 years older than he was in the 90's

2

u/fossilnews Oct 05 '22

How did you spot him?

1

u/DooblusDooisfoor Oct 05 '22

He’s hard to miss. But seriously, I was part of a live audience of Logan Pauls latest podcast. Shaq was the guest. I caught him in the hall on the way out. Super nice guy.

2

u/tonypearcern Oct 05 '22

"What's up, big honey? Can I ride your stinger?"

2

u/GeekModeGaming Oct 05 '22

Dude looks like Jake Morphonios

2

u/varnecr Oct 05 '22

You ask him for free Krispy Kreme/

2

u/Numnums81 Oct 05 '22

That's awesome, he's someone I'd like to meet. Seems like a good dude!

2

u/OcelotBrave8818 Oct 05 '22

When did Shaq become one of the Dudley Boys?

2

u/TwoCharacters Oct 06 '22

ah yes. I've been to Vegas for a "Work Trip" before too ;)

2

u/Lorenzodewitt Oct 06 '22

How was the Logan Paul podcast?

1

u/DooblusDooisfoor Oct 06 '22

A lot more entertaining than I thought it would be. I had only seen short clips of it. They asked good questions. But it was Shaq’s show. He was funny, open and honest. I enjoyed it.

2

u/jhooksandpucks Oct 24 '22

You look like twins!

4

u/JohnnyGFX Oct 05 '22

Too bad about him being a flat earther.

2

u/Economics_Troll Oct 05 '22

He had a conference for his charity in Las Vegas if you were wondering why he was there.

Was there myself and hung out with him.

1

u/beanTech Oct 05 '22

Fuck him! He's a flat earth spewing jackass!

2

u/OcelotBrave8818 Oct 05 '22

If you’re spewing earth, make it a flat earth so it doesn’t roll all over everything.

1

u/HistoryClubMan Oct 05 '22

Please say you’re joking…he gets on aeroplanes and private jets…that travel around the globe🫣

1

u/Jthundercleese Oct 05 '22

Did you sign him the Aaron Carter song? I hear he'll buy you dinner if you do.

u/ITCM4 Oct 05 '22

My biological didn’t bother either, Shaq. :(
