Basketball’s most famous big man just might be a big country star next.
Shaquille O’Neal recently posed a video of himself lip-syncing to Carrie Underwood’s 2012 smash hit “Blown Away,” and he even dresses the part in a curly blonde wig.

But what inspired Shaq’s random act of country lip-syncing?
Shaq challenged LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of recent NBA draftee Lonzo Ball, and his other son LaMelo to a game of two-on-two after LeVar boasted that he could "kill" Shaq and his son Shareef.
If lavar ball beats me I'll superglue this wig to my head forever. It's only one BIG BALLER BRAND and that's me THE SHAQ BRAND. Wake up bro. I made more free throws in a game then the Points you averaged mr 2.2 a game. Respect this first balloter #relax #justwatchyoursonplay #shhhhhh #youtoloud #youcanneverbeattheonealboyz
“I made more free throws in a game than the points you averaged mr 2.2 a game. Respect this first balloter,” the legend writes in the video’s caption.
Shaq even promised to glue the blonde wig to his head if Lavar and LaMelo could beat him and his son.
