His ability to power his way to the goal for an easy two points and dominate the glass for rebounds and blocks made him one of the best centers to ever to play the game, and allowed him to make a name for himself as a force inside the paint.

That said, he was rarely seen trying to score from distance. But the Hall of Famer recently showed that he can make shots even far from the hoop—with one hand.

Shaquille O’Neal was recently spotted inside a high school gym watching young players practicing, when he decided to toss the ball to the hoop while sitting down from the first row. He made it look easy, as he casually drained it with the least amount of effort.
