Shaquille O’Neal is always entertaining on camera with his hilarious antics and painfully funny jokes. Additionally, he’s great company, his friends and teammates over the years can vouch for that. The primary reason is that Shaq never grew up. The Los Angeles Lakers legend was always the fun part of every squad with his childish pranks being the highlight. Well, it turns out that over a decade after his retirement the Big Aristotle is the same. However, the Big Man cannot deny the inevitable, which is the work of Father Time.

In a recent podcast, Shaq shared his continuous efforts to delay his ageing. Additionally, he joked about how diapers are a norm after one turns 60, and he wishes to capitalize on that because of the shrewd businessman he is.

The seven-foot-giant was in a jolly mood when he sat down with co-host Nischelle Turner and Jamal Crawford in a recent podcast appearance. The 50-year-old contemplated that he only had “10 summers left” to become 60. A thought that kind of scared him a little. While his squad kept telling him to embrace his age as it made him look cooler, Shaq kept joking about the situation.

The four-time NBA Champion mentioned how he was all prepared with his “anti-ageing” gummies. In the recent edition of The Big Podcast, Shaq hilariously pointed out what awaited people after hitting 60 and how he’d be excited to turn even that into a business opportunity.

You know what comes after 60? Old folks home.” said Shaq. Crawford enquired if this was related to him talking about diarrhea at the start of the show. Shaq replied, “Yep, I got Pampers now do you wanna see em? ‘Shaq Pampers’ i’mma get you 10% off.”

He even blurted out a promo on the spot for his brand of diapers, “Hi, I’m Shaquille O’Neal and I sh*t on myself. But that’s okay because I’ve come out with Shaq Pampers.” The Lakers legend went on to hilariously lay out his product pitch for adult diapers.
