What Is Shaq Eating?

The Diesel is back! If you ask him though, he never left. Ever since the Suns fired coach, Terry Porter, not only has Phoenix been scoring more times than Audley Stephenson on a Saturday night in 1985, but Shaq has rediscovered his dominant self. Last Friday night, he burned the Raptors with 45 points then, on Sunday, he racked up 33 against Kobe and the Lakers. The Big Aristotle hasn't been this unstoppable since his days in purple and gold.

The question is why is this re-emergence happening now? Doesn't the big fella know he's 36 years old and on the downside of his career? I guess no one sent him the e-mail. Okay, but why is he destroying opponents right now instead of earlier this season? Was it because his skills weren't conducive to Porter's offensive system, so he's now getting the ball more? Is it because Shaq is healthy? Actually, he has been for much of the season. He's only missed 7 games. The longest he's been out was 2 straight games (Dec. 10th vs Lakers, Dec. 12th vs Magic). What else can it be then? Hmmm, maybe it's his diet? Let's analyze this.

For a guy who is 7 foot 1 and over 300 pounds, you need a good start to the day, so breakfast is crucial. I'm guessing the Big Quotable is scarfing down about 30 eggs, 3 packages of bacon and washing it down with 5 cups of OJ.

Wrong OJ, but you get what I mean. Alright, now let's look at Shaq's lunch. He needs lots of protein and complex carbohydrates for game day. I'm guessing he eats a ton of chicken, seafood and salad.

Finally, let's look at Shaq's dinner. Well, nowadays, it's basically his NBA opponents.

There you go. That's what I'm guessing Shaq's diet is looking like these days. Hey, if it works for you big man, keep doing it. It's great to have you back!

  1. You forgot Shaq's dessert, Twitter. His massive following has thrust the horrible rapper back into beast mode on the code.
