Shaquille O’Neal is a Former MVP and one of the most dominant players the game has ever witnessed. He is probably also the most destructive center the league has ever seen and will ever see in the near future. He was the guy that used to destroy the paint and even break rims because of his enormous body size. Shaquille O’Neal enjoyed tremendous success during his NBA career as he won 4 NBA titles to go with a 3 Finals MVPs and one regular-season MVP. However, the much dominant Centre has a unique sense of humor, evident by the way he joked with CNN correspondent, Nischelle Turner.
On Shaquille O’Neal’s podcast “The Big Podcast with Shaq”, one of the most popular sports podcasts, Shaq brutally roasted former CNN correspondent Nischelle Turner. Shaq’s old friend and former Orlando Magic teammate, Dennis Scott, appeared on The Big Podcast with Shaq to talk about basketball and the memories of the past. Later on, the conversation turned to celebrating Father’s day.
“It takes the sun a year to shine on every part of it” Shaquille O’Neal roasts Nischelle Turner about her forehead on his podcast
Shaquille O’Neal is a a certified jester, his time on ‘Inside The NBA’ has been riddled with hearty conversations and some spicy ones too. He is very vocal on his podcast, from how sensitive the NBA has become since he retired from the league, where players complain about the slightest of discomfort, to roasting his compatriots.
Apart from being a 15-time All-Star, 14-time All-NBA player, winning 2 Scoring titles, 4 NBA Championships, 3 Finals MVPs, 1 MVP, scoring 28,596 points, shattering numerous backboards, Big Shaq has even had a career as a stand-up comedian. The Big Diesel targeted the reporter’s broad forehead for a hilarious “$20 Uber” joke that made even Turner laugh out loud. Afterwards, Shaquille O’Neal followed up on his joke with a series of equally funny jibes harping on Turner’s ‘big forehead’.
Nischelle Turner took the jokes like a good sport. In fact, she provided Shaq with the necessary segue to roast her ‘forehand’ after boring the entire crew with her tedious ‘dad jokes’. However, Turner seemed to appreciate Shaq’s quick wit and sense of humor, instead of taking the jokes personally.
“Your forehead is so big it takes a $20 Uber ride to ride from your eyebrows to your hairline. Your forehead is so big it takes the sun a year to shine on every part of it,” he told Nischelle.”
It’s typical Shaq behavior, although he was more sophisticated here. He was being a true professional, and it seems that Nischelle didn’t mind it all that much. The Hall-Of-Famer was pretty smooth in moving on to the next line, but surely that one had to hurt Turner !
