Shaquille O'Neal buys smart car

Standing seven feet and one inches tall and weighing in at 375 pounds, Shaquille O'Neal is one big dude. Must drive a big 'ol car then, right? Umm, not exactly. The Phoenix Suns star center has recently been spotted in his newest automotive purchase, a smart fortwo. Seriously. And, surprisingly enough, he fits! Don't believe us? See above for photo proof. Well, so he sorta fits. It's a good thing that Shaq opted for the convertible, as his head comes up several inches over the top of the windshield. Oh, and we can find no real proof that the door has ever completely shut with Shaq inside. Just sayin'.

not safe, his head will be the rollbar in case of a rollover.
Ya so? He doesn't need it. You only need your head if you're gonna score freethrows! :fall:

Anyway, there is no way in Hell he "bought" a Smart Car. More like Mercedes dropped one off, along with a dump truck full of money in hopes that him being seen in one would make others go "oh jeez, maybe it's not too small of a car for me, and I should go buy one right now!" Well it didn't work on me.

Surely just a publicity stunt. I doubt he'll EVER really drive that car unless he's paid a WHOLE lot to do so.

hahaha......I agree. Makes a funny picture though.:D

Look at the emblem on the hood





Miami Center and former Los Angeles Lakers world champion Shaquille O’Neal has decided to get rid of his pimped out Superman Cadillac Escalade.

I sort of wonder why Mercedes/Smart feels this is necessary at this point in time.... There is already a waiting list that is months long and you cannot even drive one of these things off the lot without having previously ordered it.

My freind "placed an order" for one, however, it has been over 7 months now, and they haven't even called her back to finalize all of the options.

IMO, Smart doesn't need the publicity yet, and those with them can turn right around and sell them for well above sticker, have a look at ebay...

My thoughts as well. But I'm sure he was paid for the photo.

After evaluating the authenticity of this photo, its no publicity stunt, it's The Real Deal Holyfield. Shaq is finally witnessing the side effects of divorce and not winning championships.

KOBE needs to make a rap about this and "dis" (Translation: judge unfavorably) SHAQuille O'Neal.

And it should be, some what along this line:

Shaq, Shaq you look like an @ss
in that car that is as, big as your Shaq shoe.......
