We’d pay a lot of money to see this one on pay-per-view
Shaq may have retired from the NBA in June, but he is still the league’s most entertaining figure.
And with the league currently mired in a lockout that threatens the coming season, NBA fans might have to turn to other sports to satisfy their thrist for serious competition.
How about some mixed martial arts?
So when the four-time NBA champ listed the five NBA players he’d most like to fight for an episode of HDNet’s Inisde MMA show, scheduled to air Friday night at 9 p.m., we couldn’t help but get excited.
“From the NBA, the whole NBA, who would you like to fight,” the show’s host asked to one of the biggest personalities in league history.
Shaq, who decided to go old school instead of looking to the current crop of NBAers, listed former Knick big man Charley Oakley as his top choice.
Oakley, who spent nine seasons on Broadway and retired from the NBA following the 2003-04 season, would be facing a 100-pound weight difference in this matchup.
We’re sure Shaq isn’t the only one what would like to kick Oakley’s a$$….
