Breaking BackboardsNear the beginning of his career, Shaq broke the backboards in 2 separate games, against the New Jersey Nets (destroying the entire backboard) and then again in a game against the Phoenix Suns. These incidents eventually led to the NBA reinforcing the backboards, so these incidents are likely never to repeat again.
- 9Up 3Down 2Over the course of his career, O'Neal appeared in numerous films and TV shows. But none are more...erm...memorable than his turn as a rapping genie who emerges from an enchanted boombox in the 1996 comedy "Kazaam." The film was not well-reviewed nor received by audiences, and currently sits in the IMDb's "Bottom 100" for the lowest-ranked films in their index.
Did they not even SEE the genie's freestyle rap intro?
Like that one most embarrassing moment that happened to occur in front of every single one of your friends, this has come back as a way for people to lightheartedly make fun of Shaq for over a decade. While this isn't something to be proud of, at this point, it really isn't something to be that ashamed of either. Sure, his film career didn't quite take off, but he left the film community with two shining examples of exactly what not to do if you're a sports star trying to make your name in the movie business.
Honorable Mention: And, of course, who can forget Steel (this is the highest res trailer that was available on YouTube).

During his chat with Shaq, Ali G debates the meaning of the term "NBA." Is it really the National Basketball Association? Or is that just Shaq's opinion?
