NBA analyst and future Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal went on ‘The Daily Show’on Monday and the fun started before he even sat down for his interview with Jon Stewart. When the diminutive host approached to shake his hand, Shaq scooped him up like a child. Stewart then attempted to do the same to O’Neal, unsuccessfully.

After quickly plugging his Dove Men campaign and mentioning that he is working on getting his P.H.D (seriously), Shaq turned his attention to what’s really important to him, reminding the audience that he’s “still sexy.”

“I still have some firmness in my ass when I touch it,” he said.

Then the two dove right into basketball as Stewart told Shaq about how his son wants to be a professional basketball player.

“I don’t know at what age do I break to him that he’s Jewish,” said Stewart. “How do you even say that?”

Surprisingly, O’Neal broke out some Hebrew (wishing Stewart a happy new year) before telling Jon to let his son know that “Uncle Shaq” believes he can make it.

Unlike Charles Barkley visited the show, Shaq offered Stewart, an avowed Knicks fan, some hopeful thoughts on New York’s team, predicting they would beat out the Milwaukee Bucks for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
