NBA giant gets his opportunity to direct the Pops

Shaquille O’ Neal is a man that wears  many hats. Basketball player for Boston Celtics, Police officer, Shazam, commercial spokesman, rapper. If you need any more examples, turn to his interesting enough reality-TV show on ABC, ‘Shaq Vs’.

Well just in time for the holidays, he picked up a new trade. Symphony director.

The job isn’t an easy task, believe me. Especially knowing he’s directing the legendary Boston Pops. The big guy delights the crowd with “Sleigh Ride” and  Queen’s “We Are the Champions.” Mr. O’Neal has a fun time with the golden opportunity, although a bit clumsy and silly at times, but he manages to hold his own and bring a few chuckles to the audience at Boston’s Symphony Hall. Job well done.
