Shaquille O'Neal

Since joining the Celtics as a free agent, he dressed as a drag queen [4] on Halloween. HeĀ appeared as a statue [5] in Harvard Square. Now, Shaquille O’Neal is planning his next big stunt in Boston.

Accompanying girlfriend Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander on WGBH’s Emily Rooney Show Thursay, he announced [6] plans to perform a magic act on top of the TD Garden.

“Now, listen,” O’Neal told WGBH. “I asked Criss Angel to levitate me over the top of the TD Boston Garden, and he said yes so we just have to figure out a date.”

Angel is a magician who appears on an A&E television show entitled “Mindfreak [7].”

Alexander also revealed that the two have taken dancing classes together in their hometown of Sudbury. Unfortunately, there’s no video available of that. She and O’Neal also debated whether or not she’s ever defeated him 1-on-1 in tennis.

Suffering from an inflamed Achilles tendon, O’Neal hasn’t played since Feb. 1 against the Kings. He is expected to miss Thursday night’s game against the Lakers and could be out through the Feb. 18-21 NBA All-Star break.
