Seems like Shaquille O’Neal is anything but a big loser, as NBA legend recently made the headlines when his bet with fellow Dwayne Wade didn’t pay off.
The former professional basketball player made a memorable appearance Tuesday night taking his place on TNT NBA coverage, and the 47-year-old stole the show with his new haircut.
Even though basketball legend has kept his head completely shaved for years, due to the baldness, it seems that this time he let his hair go away. Shaquille O’Neal’s Hair Fiasco Video Has Fans Laughing At LeBron James Too
Apparently, O’Neal decided to recognize the elephant in the room and to satisfy the curiosity of viewers as he addressed his explanation to the whole country with “Let’s leave it aside, America”.
O’Neal then went on to reveal that he had lost a bet against Wade over who would win in the last game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat.
Since O’Neal’s prediction that Milwaukee would win by 20 failed, he would have asked Wade if he wanted the bet paid.
meanwhile, Wade didn’t want his friend’s money, and as he replied with “No, you have to let your hair grow, and we want to see your hair look like Kenny Smith.”
He said, “Let’s say it, America. I bet one of my good friends, D. Wade, in Milwaukee against the Heat. I said that Milwaukee was going to win by 20 and that the Heat had won. I said, “What do you want me to do? Pay you?’ He said, ‘No, you have to let your hair grow. We want to see your hair line look like Kenny Smith. So, I just aligned it for all of you, so you can see where my hairline is. I look good, and I’m proud to do it, and I’ll keep it that way [always]. “
