With the NBA offseason more exciting than last seasons finals, Ball Boyz sit down with the one and only diesel aka the big Aristotle aka the big cactus, Shaquille O’Neal.

After surprising World Cup watchers at the Australian bar in New York City with Krispy Kreme donuts, hosts Kyle Hodge and Ian Servantes catch up with Shaq to discuss teaming up with the Krispy Kreme for #WorldChocolateDay and who would win a donut eating contest between him and Charles Barkley. With LeBron James shocking the entire NBA industry with his offseason move to the Los Angeles Lakers, we ask the former purple and gold hall-of-famer about his initial reaction to his viral decision to join the prestigious organization.

We were also lucky enough to catch the dramatic Brazil vs Belgium World Cup game, which enticed O’Neal to poke fun at Neymar’s controversial flopping. Check out the full interview above, and let us know what you think about LeBron’s decision to join LA next year and Neymar’s on-field acting.

After, learn more about the LeBron James Effect: an economy built on one man.
