Shaq talks to Charlie Rose of CBS This Morning about Dennis Rodman visiting North Korea in a diplomatic role.  Rodman recently met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.  This didn’t sit well with many, since the U.S. has known bad history with Korea.  If the visit didn’t go well then it could have ended up with the United States in a war with North Korea.  Shaq called it a “risky move” and said Rodman should “leave diplomacy to diplomats.”

Shaq Hoopz Hugged Up in Bahamas

Shaquille O’ Neal and his lovely lady Hoopz are back together or at least that’s how it seems.  They were spotted last weekend at Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas for the Paradise Children’s Foundation event.  They played bball and signed basketballs for the kids.  While in each other presence the two couldn’t keep their hands off one another.

Could this be a reunion for the lovely couple.  It’s not official yet, but I’m sure we’ll start seeing more of the couple together.

Kobe Bryant Talks About His Relationship With Shaquille O’ Neal

Kobe Bryant talks about his bitter sweet past relationship with ex-teammate Shaq.  The two men once paired together on the Los Angeles Lakers, but never were really friends, but played a hell of a game together.  When asked about maintaining a bond with Shaquille O’ Neal, this is what Kobe had to say

“There’s things I wanted to do in my career, take my career to another level, that I was just uncapable of doing as long as we were playing together which I was fine with doing until I heard him say a few times, ‘Kobe’s not going to be as succesful without me, this, that and the other.’ “

He went on to say,

“One of the big problems that he had with me is that I’m extremely, brutally honest with my guys,  If a player’s not working as hard as he should, I’m gonna tell him. And that includes somebody’s whose 7’3, 400 pounds. [laughs] Which is probably not the smartest thing in the world to do, but you know, it is what it is.”

Hopefully, they’ve since buried the hatchet and today have a mutual respect for one another, even though they know they’ll never be besties.  Maybe one day they’ll have a televised sit down and put it all on the table.  That’d be cool.

Shaq Breaks Up With Hoopz And Calls Security To Escort Her Out
Featured Hoopz Shaquille O' Neal Urban News
March 19, 2012

Reportedly, two weeks ago Shaquille O’ Neal told his live-in fiance, Nicole HoopzAlexander that it was over between them, but its been a slow process getting her out of his home.

It’s reported that Hoopz has been emotional since the break up and things must have gotten heated, because Shaq had to call his security team to throw Hoopz out of his house.

The details of why they broke up is unknown, but Shaq didn’t let the breakup ruin his weekend because reportedly he was seen in Las Vegas celebrating his 40th birthday with a hot Asian chick (see pic below **chick in red**).  I wonder if this had anything to do with Hoopz becoming overly emotional.

A source close to the situation commented on what went down:

“Hoopz got emotional, and Shaq had to protect himself [from a lawsuit] . . . so he left the house and had [his security] help Hoopz gather her things and leave.”

I feel bad for Hoopz because I’m hearing she now is back home in Tennessee trying to figure her next move out.  Since they were only engaged, she doesn’t get dibs to any of Shaq’s money and she’s back to being a broke wannabe TV star.  She should’ve milked him for a college education at least.  But to be fair, she probably deserved to fall on her face, there’s no telling what drama or stress she brought to the household.  Long Live Shaquille!!!
