“Put your middle finger up in the air!” NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal (as DJ Diesel) urged a crowd of 4,000 when he manned the turntables at Joey Morrissey’s HQ2 club at Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
Some in the crowd wondered if the move was part of a feud between Shaq and a group of party trolls waving Charles Barkley shirts with No. 34 — the same number O’Neal retired as a Laker.
“Shaq took to the mike and said, ‘But he ain’t got no ring!’ ” party sources told us. (Shaq played Kanye West’s bird-flipping anthem “To the World” which says, “Let me see you put your middle fingers up.”)
But he also had some supporters: “Two bodacious blondes were flashing him . . . One had ‘Shaq’ written across her breasts, the other turned around and peeled down her bikini bottom to reveal ‘O’Neal’ scrawled across her posterior.”
As things heated up on the dance floor, “suddenly smoke poured out of the DJ booth, with a floor that had been lowered a foot and a half to accommodate the 7-foot-1, 300-plus-pound sports icon,” a spy said.
But “inspectors at the hot spot quickly realized the smoke was coming from a custom grill installed for Shaq by the restaurant Robert’s . . . Chef Will Savarese was grilling up six 2-pound tomahawk steaks for the DJ, who picked up the huge bone and gnawed at it like it was a tiny lamb chop.”
Shaq signed basketballs and threw them into the crowd, then went back to his suite, where he ordered six more 24-ounce porterhouse steaks for his squad before he jumped on a private jet and flew to the MLB All-Star Game.
