The NBA 2K franchise raised its profile with the 2K13 edition, bringing in Jay Z to executively produce the soundtrack, luring in big names in music like Kanye West and Nas. For 2K14, the game enlisted the help of LeBron James to build a star-studded musical lineup.

For 2K15, the game is bringing in Pharrell to fill out the roster, who has his finger in every proverbial Top 40 pie, and guess who wants in? None other than Shaq, who spit a couple bars to prove he was worth the cap space.

It was hilarious.

Not sure that LeBron James needed much defending this time around — the decision he made and more importantly how he handled the announcement on Friday were a stark contrast to four years earlier. Outside of the understandable frustration in Miami, LeBron’s return to Cleveland has been welcomed nationwide.

But Shaquille O’Neal came to LeBron’s defense on Instagram anyway, and it was funny enough we thought we’d pass it along.

The Big Diesel, Shaquille O’Neal, recently attended the Reebok Classic Breakout Camp and spoke to the youth about the dedication and hard work it takes to be a dominant force in the NBA. Shaq provided some great insight tips he learned throughout his career, while letting the young high school ball players ask him questions.
