Shaq Loves Taylor Swift
You can tell that Shaquille O'Neal is already enjoying his retirement. Here he is with his common-law wife Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander at a Taylor Swift concert in Orlando.
He couldn't have done this when he was still playing. Can you imagine the ribbing he would get if he had to go into the Celtics locker room after being spotted at a Taylor Swift concert? Kevin Garnett would lose it on him. On top of receiving the scorn of his teammates, the trash talk from opponents would have been epic.
Now, Shaq can indulge his love of barely legal country pop stars to his giant heart's content, and no one gets to say shit to him.
