While there’s quite a bit of Shaquille O’Neal was on his way to the gym in L.A. … when all of a sudden he got caught up IN JONAS BROTHERS MADNESS!
Shaq starts off asking TMZ photogs why hundreds of people are screaming and going crazy across the street — and when he finds out it’s all because of a Jonas Bros. event, he LOVES IT!!
But, they also talked hoops with Shaq … specifically about Drake, who’s been heavily criticized for taunting Golden State Warriors players and going crazy on the sidelines during the NBA Finals.
“Drake is a smart guy,” Shaq says … “He knows what he’s doing. It’s called marketing, people!!”
Shaq also says he thinks the criticism of Drake is a load of crap — and compares Drake to Clippers’ chairman Steve Ballmer, who’s famously animated at Clippers games.
“[Drake] is just having fun, having a good time … as a guy sitting there watching on TV, it’s very entertaining.”
Shaq also weighs in on the NBA Finals drama between the Warriors and the Toronto Raptors — and explains why this series is GREAT!!
But again, the best part of the clip is Shaq’s unbridled passion for Nick, Joe and Kevin — even though he only knows one of their names.
