Shaquille O’Neal is being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame so we decided to give The Diesel his proper respect by doing a Shaqcast, an all Shaquille O’Neal podcast. Bacon Sports writer Tom Hamm joins to dish about the awesomeness of Shaq’s NBA, rap, and movie careers.

Shaquille O’Neal topics that we cover include:

  • Would the Magic have been better off if they kept Chris Webber?
  • Is Shaq better than Kobe?
  • Where does Shaq rank all-time among NBA centers?
  • What was our favorite rap song from Shaq Diesel?
  • Why Blue Chips is one of the greatest basketball movies ever.
  • Where does Neon Bordeaux stack up among the all-time greatest basketball movie characters ever?

I want to hear from you. Who do rank higher among NBA All-Time greats: Shaquille O’Neal or Kobe Bryant? Do you rank Shaq or Hakeem higher among NBA centers? What is your favorite Shaq moment? Did you own a Shaq Diesel tape? How many times have you watched Blue Chips? Drop me a line on Twitter @BaconSports or on Snapchat @baconsports.
