Shaq has promised us all something that he needs to own up to.
In an interview on national television in 2004, he expressed his admiration of Phil Jackson by saying his record of four NBA Finals appearances in five seasons could never be beat– he then promised to kiss the feet of any other coach who did it.
Steve Kerr, the coach of the Golden State Warriors has now beat that record, and didn’t forget Shaq’s promise.
Shaq’s actual words were “If a coach takes a team to the Finals, I’ll kiss his feet on Fear Factor. With cheese on ‘em. I will! It’ll never be done again.”
We hope Kerr holds him to it.
