Shaq’s Mom: ‘I Can Shoot Free-Throws Better than Shaquille’

If being razzed by countless hoops fans about his abysmal free-throw abilities isn’t bad enough, now Shaquille O’Neal has to contend with his mama’s quips!

This week on BlogTalkRadio’s Bottom Line Sports Show, Lucille O’Neal, who recently took over as president of the Mothers of Professional Basketball Players, chats about the association’s upcoming charitably events.

CAPTION: Lucille: She got game.

Lucille: She got game.

In August, she’ll take to the boards in Las Vegas with other NBA moms to raise money for the Center for Academic Enrichment and Outreach.

“We’re going to have a basketball game. Imagine that now,” she tells host Gerald Brown – before scoring with this zinger:

“I’m puttin’ on my jersey. I can shoot free-throws better than Shaquille.”

(The Phoenix Suns center is of course one of the worst free-throw shooters in the NBA, with a lifetime average of 53 percent. Armed with this knowledge, opposing players often foul him on purpose, figuring it’s better to have him tossing buckets from the line than bulldozing past them – and slam-dunking.)

Lucille also discusses her September 17–18 golf tournament in Orlando, Fla.

Shaq: Not so much (least not with the freebies).

Shaq: Not so much (least not with the freebies).

We’re calling this event ‘Shaq’s Mama Said Knock You Out: Presenting a Souful Midday Soiree.’

“Do you remember – I’m gonna say back in the day – after work, instead of going home from work, you went to an after-hours club and you relaxed, maybe played cards or had a drink or trash talked or whatever?

“We’re trying to create that atmos- phere on a Friday night, because a lot of people are upright nowadays.

“And we’re going to invite anyone who wants to buy into a poker tournament. And we’re going to have some high- rollers.

“But I have to warn you: the money that you win, that’s gonna go into the fund. You can’t take that home.”

Chalk up another one for Mrs. O.  (Who knew she was such a hoot?)
