Shaquille O’Neal’s Cheat Sheet Uncovered

So it appears that Shaq is having trouble picking up on all the different offensive sets and plays that the Cavaliers run. You may have read this from Brian Windhorst’s column

With the start of the regular season less than a week away, the Cavaliers new center is admitting he’s still having some trouble learning the offense. It is a different system from what’s he been used to during much of his career and he’s struggling a bit remembering and executing some of the plays.

“It is vital that I start to memorize the plays” O’Neal said. “I’ve been used to a certain system for 17 years so I have to work on that. I still have a few days before we start.”

Apparently the Cavaliers were listening. They have made Shaq a cheat sheet of his responsibilities during every offensive set. It is not known at this time if Shaq intends to wear the sheet on a wristband like an NFL quarterback, or if he will try and memorize it. In an exclusive to WFNY, we give you the Shaq cheat sheet.

    Eric Mangini called on behalf of the Cleveland Cavaliers and would like you to cease and desist. You’re giving away critical strategic advantage.

  • Denny

    This is the same sheet I had in 7th grade. I couldn’t dunk then, and I can’t dunk now.

    I’m with Feel – best T-shirt idea ever is an xxtra long tee that’s down to the knees, with no sleeves.
