Shaquille O’Neal has filled many roles in his time, both on and off the court. He has played for more than his share of NBA clubs. He has been a police officer. He has been a dancer. He has been a comedian and salesman. And now, he is an orchestra conductor. Take a look at this video, as Shaq conducts the Boston Pops Orchestra and Tanglewood Festival Chorus in “Sleigh Ride” as part of a Holiday Pops Concert last night in Boston’s Symphony Hall.


Perhaps the Boston Celtics won’t need Rajon Rondo’s leadership skills on the court any more, with Shaq’s ability to call the shots and conduct the team to success.

Here is what the Big Bean Bag had to say after the event at the press conference.


Oh, and as a “bonus” of sorts, here is one prediction from prior to the event of how Shaq’s conducting would play out.
