Shaq as Old White Beard
From the AP--
O’Neal says he has no desire to be a star with his new team. Those roles belong to Nash and Amare Stoudemire, he said.
“I’m more like a senior adviser so I don’t like to come in here and try to take over,” O’Neal said. … “Just like your basic karate movie where the young guys come to the old guys with beards who have them do weird stuff to get to the other side. That’s who I am, the old guy with a long beard.”
“You like that analogy?” he said, obviously pleased with himself. “That was pretty good?”
Nash was a willing sidekick.
“I think this is his 73rd Asian martial arts film,” he said. “We’re excited to learn from the great master.”
