SHAQ'S TWO LEFT FEET

SHAQ SNEAKS!

Loyal Shaquille O'Neal put his best foot forward for his buddies -- sort of! Shaq wanted to appear in a music video for pals who'd formed a group called "3-11." All he had to do was play in a pickup basketball game, but Lakers coach Phil Jackson told him, "Not until after playoffs. I don't want you to get hurt playing around on video!" But bighearted Shaq sneaked out during a break at Lakers practice -- grabbing two of his many basketball shoes on the run. Unfortunately, Shaq grabbed two LEFT shoes, but hobbled through the video anyhow, telling the crew, "Don't shoot my feet -- and DON'T tell anyone about this!" (Sorry, Shaq, somebody told!)
