Shaquille O’Neal heading to ESPN?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Once NBA superstar (and former L.A. Laker) Shaquille O’Neal announced his retirement, people began speculating what would be next. Would the former actor return to movies? Would he pursue his lifelong dream of a career in law enforcement? Or would he follow other NBA legends like Magic Johnson and try sports commentary?

If it’s the latter, it sounds like he’ll land at ESPN, the self-proclaimed worldwide leader in sports.

O’Neal’s reportedly making an official retirement announcement later today (Friday), but in a video message Tweeted to fans on Thursday, Shaq shared, “I’m sitting here with my agent Perry Rogers. He just gave me some good news. A certain network wants to hire me.”

Shaq then sang the recognizable SportsCenter theme song before adding, “Jim Rome, I’m coming for your job.”

There’s no doubt Shaq has the charisma to contribute to ESPN. But does he have the speaking voice? O’Neal might be the first ESPN analyst who would need subtitles to clarify what’s being said in that baritone voice. And boom goes the dynamite.
