NBA legend, Shaquille O’Neal said on Tuesday’s pregame show for NBA on TNT, that he lost a bet to Dwyane Wade and as a result, he had to let his hairline grow out.
“Let’s just get it out of the way America. I had a bet against one of my good friends D. Wade,” O’Neal said explaining that he predicted that the Milwaukee Bucks would beat the Miami Heat on Monday night.
Wade, 38, bet correctly on his former team, who won 105-89.
“I said Milwaukee was going to win by 20 and the Heat won,” O’Neal said on the segment as Wade smiled from the other side of the table.
“I said so what do you want me to do? Pay you? He said, ‘Nah, you have to let your hairline grow out. We want to see your hairline looking like Kenny Smith,’” the Hall of Famer said Wade told him of the former Houston Rockets star.
Despite agreeing to take the punishment, O’Neal explained he isn’t ashamed of his new look.
“I just lined it up for y’all, so y’all can see where my hairline stars,” O’Neal said as the camera zoomed in to show his hairline. “I look good, and I’m proud to do it, and I’m keeping it all week,” O’Neal added.
