Shaquille O’Neal is a man of many talents. Shaq is one of the most dominant centers in NBA history. The man can rap. He can act. He can dance. And he’s a hilariously entertaining analyst as part of TNT’s Inside the NBA crew.
Pretty much everyone is familiar with Shaq. But did you know he had a hand in creating *NSYNC?
You read that sentence correctly. Lance Bass told TMZ Sports how the Lakers great helped the boy band get on its feet in the early days.
“A lot of people don’t know, Shaquille had a big hand in starting our career,” Bass said. “We lived in Orlando and our first place that we recorded at was his house. All of our first demos and first songs were all from Shaq’s house. So yeah, he had a hand in creating us. Maybe that’s why it’s on Google.”
Here’s why Bass mentioned Google: a number of individuals noted earlier this week that if you searched *NSYNC members, Shaq’s name came up.

As of Tuesday afternoon, it appears Google has, sadly, removed the Big Diesel’s name from that list.
