Last week at the Reebok Classics Breakout Camp in Philadelphia, Shaq shrugged when asked his opinion on the duo’s forthcoming flick.
“It probably will be funny,” he said, smirking at the thought of the four-time NBA MVP teaming up with Hart.
After initial plans to cast Craig Robinson alongside James were scrapped, Hart has reportedly taken on the lead role as James’ underachieving brother. The plot of Ballers will focus on Hart and James’ relationship while at LeBron’s annual adult basketball camp in Las Vegas.
In true competitive fashion, Shaq revealed to VIBE that he too has plans for a movie with another undersized comedian.
“If they come out with a movie, me and Lil Duval gon’ come out with a movie,” he said. “We already talked about it.”
Shaq’s last major role was in the 1997 film Steel. —Christopher Harris
