Shaq is not a man that’s afraid of a bet. He’s a 7-foot giant that loves a practical joke ever so often. And all those jokes come off the butt of a bet lost by the big diesel. Shaq is a film star and an analyst and is a big public figure. That means that any bet he losses, more people get to witness it. And with a recent bet he’s put forth, we could see Superman in his birthday suit with the Sun’s logo tattooed on his butt.
Shaq has made a ridiculous bet again
However, Shaq does not know when to stop. In his recent podcast, Shaq put forth another bet.
“Golden State will win the championship this year, I’m guaranteeing it. Let’s place a bet on it. If the Suns beat Golden State I am going to walk two blocks with Suns written on my ass, aight? I will post it live on Instagram. I’ll walk two blocks.”
Shaq is not one to shy away from bets, but if the Suns do pull this off, they will not let him get away with it. Shaq was a former Phoenix Suns player but has put his money in another direction. The Warriors do have more championship experience. And the big of Curry, Poole, and Klay, look scary, the way that they have been dominating back-to-back MVP Jokic‘s team.
But Phoenix has won 64 games this regular season and broke the franchise record. They lead every other team in the NBA by over 8 games. However, they lost game 2 to the Pelicans who squeezed into the NBA playoffs. That was one of the worst things imaginable, losing home-court advantage to the 9th best team in the West.
In 2017-18, just FOUR years ago, the Phoenix Suns were the worst team in the NBA at 19-63. 63 LOSSES.
Suns ended 2021-22 as the best team in the NBA at 64-18. 64 WINS.

Phoenix has done some great things and making Shaq live up to his bet could be one of them. However, none of it could materialize if they don’t get past the first round.
