Shaquille O’Neal seems to always get the short end of the stick on Inside the NBA. The Lakers legend found himself roasted by 10-year-old Liv Harness recently.
Shaquille O’Neal is viewed by many of us as a larger-than-life character. He was Superman for us at the start of the century, while he also endorsed many other nicknames for himself.
The 3-time MVP is Shaq Fu, Shaq Diesel, The Big Shamrock, Osama bin Shaq, Shaq Daddy and the Big Aristotle all at the same time. And he manages to somehow rock all of these sobriquets with the composure of Frank Sinatra.
Now his movements on a hardwood court may not mirror those of the legendary musician. After all, it’s been a good 10 years since O’Neal last stepped on an NBA court. But it’s still something of a matter of pride for him to not get crossed up by any non-NBA opponent.
The Inside crew provided Shaq with the perfect roastmaster 2 days back – a budding 10-year-old girl. Liv Harness is a player in the class of 2029, and we suggest that you check out her Instagram for some neat skills.
Liv Harness roasts Shaquille O’Neal, claims to be able to break his ankles with 1 move
The young baller recently became popular on social media after some videos of her on open courts became viral. Harness was invited by TNT for a short interview during their post-game presentation this Tuesday.
Shaq asked her 2 major questions – where she’s planning to go to college, and whether Liv wants to be a WNBA player. She minced no words, clearly stating that her dream is to be the first woman in the NBA.
Now given such a lofty goal, you’d know that she has an insane competitive edge. Which is what she displayed when she declared to Shaq that she’d break his ankles.
“My goal is to become the first female in the NBA.”

Shaq seemed a bit stunned and unsure of how to respond to that comment. But he did recover to end the interview on a benevolent note. We do wish Liv Harness all the best in her future endeavors.
