Dr. Shaquille O’Neal says he has a new scientific theory concerning the idea that there are multiple moons. For someone named “The Big Aristotle,” Shaq seems to be very uneducated about the moon and its orbits.
Shaquille O’Neal Believes There Are Two Moons
On the Nov. 15 episode of “Inside the NBA” the TNT analyst clarified some outlandish comments and theories he had about the moon.
“I have a new theory,’ O’Neal said. “There’s more than one moon.”
The Hall Of Fame center said believes there is a second moon because of an eventful drive he had where he claims the moon had shifted locations in a short amount of time.
Shaq has many opinions and beliefs, and he’s paid to express them to global audiences. Few would argue that he’s not one of the most interesting individuals you’ll find in the entertainment industry, heck, the whole world. His crazy concoction of wisdom, humor, humility, and seriousness wrapped up in one has made him a national treasure and a business mogul.
Despite his elite grasp of capitalism, sometimes he says some things that make you scratch your head.

Charles Barkley Disses Shaq
While the explanation sounded great in Shaq’s head, his co-host Charles Barkley had to quickly remind Shaq of how the Earth’s rotation works.
“That’s because it was moving, fool,” said Barkley, who was informing Shaq that the moon was changing positions because the Earth is rotating.
Regardless of what Charles had to say, Shaq had a rebuttal, though it wasn’t really backed up by much evidence or science.
“There’s more than one moon,” O’Neal said in response. “And then another 45 seconds the moon was on my right.”
Shaq obviously does a lot of thinking, even though his theories aren’t always well thought out.
Sports Illustrated provided another timely example of Shaq’s thought process regarding the moon and how it relates to the Earth. In 2018, Shaq was wondering if it takes less distance traveled to get to the moon from their Atlanta studio than it would take to get to California. His thought process behind this was that he could see the moon with his eyes even though he couldn’t see California. Quite the philosopher, Shaq.
Shaq Has History Of Being A Comedian
Furthermore, Shaq has displayed the ability to be goofy on numerous occasions. From his moments in the NBA to the analyst desk.
How about the story of Shaq running around the Phoenix Suns locker room naked, trying to prank teammates with “Brazilian Naked Wrestling.” Or when he tried to flash his butt to teammate Rick Fox during an interview, in order to distract Fox. Hilarious stuff.
Shaq is constant laughs but can be very profound at times. He’s probably one of the wisest figures from the NBA, and that’s due to his life experiences that have taken him around the world. Hence, why so many players look up to him also as a mentor to many young athletes.
Let’s be honest. We’ve heard some crazy “Shaqisms” over the years, but his ideologies when it comes to the moon and its relationship to the Earth take the cake. These thoughts are just as ludicrous as when Kyrie Irving when he thought the Earth was flat.
He is a doctor though, so we should listen to him, right?
