Shaq’s Mom: ‘I Can Shoot Free-Throws
Better than Shaquille’

If being razzed by countless hoops fans about his abysmal free-throw abilities isn’t bad enough, now Shaquille O’Neal has to contend with his mama’s quips!

This week on the Bottom Line Sports Show, Lucille O’Neal, who recently took over as president of the Mothers of Professional Basketball Players, chats about the association’s upcoming charitably events. In August, she’ll take to the boards in Las Vegas with other NBA moms to raise money for the Center for Academic Enrichment and Outreach.

“We’re going to have a basketball game. Imagine that now,” she tells host Gerald Brown – before scoring with this zinger: “I’m puttin’ on my jersey. I can shoot free-throws better than Shaquille.”

Lucille also discusses her September 17-18 golf tournament in Orlando, Fla. We’re calling this event ‘Shaq’s Mama Said Knock You Out: Presenting a Souful Midday Soiree’: “Do you remember – I’m gonna say back in the day – after work, instead of going home from work, you went to an after-hours club and you relaxed, maybe played cards or had a drink or trash talked or whatever? We’re trying to create that atmosphere on a Friday night, because a lot of people are upright nowadays.

“And we’re going to invite anyone who wants to buy into a poker tournament. And we’re going to have some high-rollers. But I have to warn you: the money that you win, that’s gonna go into the fund. You can’t take that home.”
