Shaq reflects on closing out our fifth year of the podcast as we get ready to celebrate our anniversary on June 1st. We talk about the infamous Shaq-vs-Hakeem one on one that never came to be, and jump into some nostalgic stories as we answer some great texts to the show. The incredible Taylor Rooks joins the show to talk about the second season of her Bleacher Report show "Take It There", and as a Georgia girl we get her to stick around for a round of Walmart or Waffle House! And on the eve of our five year anniversary, we relive everyone's all-time favorite Borderlines.

Shaquille O'Neal seems to be doing well during life in quarantine, as we get caught up on the Last Dance as Shaq compares the story about Michael's "flu game" to the lie he made up about David Robinson. We're also joined by the incredible Cari Champion and after Shaq's proposal, Shaq seems to accidentally break the news that she's joining his family at Turner Sports! We get into Phil Jackson's recruitment to LA by Shaq, the huge NBA Zoom call where Shaq revealed how he once almost choked Pat Riley, and the late years of Shaq's career. Of course we get Borderline, and we read some awkward names in our game "No Laugh Graduation".

Shaq kicks off the show with the question on everyone's mind... did Shaq really say to scrap the rest of the NBA season? He comes back by saying that a shortened season would not count toward a championship - like he thinks Time Duncan shouldn't get credit for 1999. He backs up his controversial argument and how he could never play in an empty arena, as the fans control the game as much as the players. We of course touch on The Last Dance since Shaq's 95 Magic team was featured as they knocked the Bulls out of the 95 Playoffs. We do a fun round of Borderline, and Stephen Jackson returns to the show to play a round of Black Crime or White Crime!

Shaquille O'Neal opens the show with Stephen Jackson, as they get into Draymond Green's comments that he and Steph would destroy Shaq on the pick-and-roll, their hopes for the future of the NBA and classic memories from the old days of the NBA. Shaq also talks about The Last Dance - which of course Kincade has an issue with - and has to answer for his kids getting haircuts at the dinner table in the latest episode of Shaq Life. Plus hilarious audio from a prank-gone-wrong on Kincade, and Charles Barkley's amazing stop-and-stumble during an interview this past week. Of course we get Borderline, and since we're desperate for the return of sports we play a game called "Real Sport or Sheeee?"
