Brace yourselves everyone: Shaquille O’Neal has a book coming out. There is no question Shaq Uncut will be filled with entertaining commentary and inside information, but his love for attention should remind us to take anything he says with a grain of salt. This is a guy that will do just about anything to cause a stir and get a few laughs, so if you choose to use his new book as your Bible do so wisely.
Now that the disclaimers are out of the way, Slam Online shared a very intriguing snippet from Shaq’s book with us on Wednesday. We all know Rajon Rondo’s kryptonite is shooting the basketball. The Celtics point guard has had his fair share of offensive explosions by getting to the hoop, but he has one of the worst jump shots in the league for a guard. According to Shaq, President Barack Obama hurt Rondo’s confidence even further back in March and his game got worse.
In early March some of the guys went to the museum of Fine Arts for a fund-raiser and got to hang with President Barack Obama. Everyone was a little bit in awe. The President turns to Ray, points at Rondo, and says, “Hey, Ray, why don’t you teach this kid how to shoot?” Everyone starts laughing.
