More specifically, Shaq wants to do an underwear commercial with his sons. Or at least that’s what he told Entertainment Tonight.

All of it is the result of O’Neal — long considered one of the basketball’s friendliest and most gracious Hall of Famers — shedding 40 pounds for health reasons.

Shaq has always been a large man, even during his playing days. But doctors apparently warned him that he was getting too large. He admittedly ate a lot when he played. Once he stopped playing, only the intense exercise ended. The big meals continued.

So it added inches around O’Neal’s waistline and threats to his overall health. He then decided to do something about it, via clean eating and workouts.

 “I lost 40 pounds,” O’Neal told ET. “I need to lose about 20 more, but impressive. Imma get real chiseled up and do an underwear ad with my sons.”

All of this is actually part of a bet with O’Neal’s co-host on the Big Podcast with Shaq, Spice Adams. The two are in a competition of sorts to see who could lose the most weight and get in better shape.

Both actually removed their shirts on the podcast (which is also broadcast on YouTube) to show their progress. Based on the comments, it appeared Shaq was deemed fitter than Adams, a former NFL player.

But clearly, Shaq isn’t finished. He is still challenging himself.

And who knows? He may be motivated by the idea of the underwear ad. Whatever works, right?

Either way, give the big man credit for taking a big step and serving as a big inspiration.
