    An oversize padded codpiece.

    I'd imagine a guy Shaq's size may not need an F650 daily driver, but won't be needing a padded codpiece either.

    Dude is assembled on a scale quite unlike most mortals.

    Probably has the $ to fill up the gas tanks too, also quite unlike most mortals.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Just once I want to see a basketball or football player driving a hybrid or electric vehicle.

    Stupid vehicle. Off roader with no clearance to appear cool. Dumb.

    Why should he act otherwise?

    Highly paid athletes are the top of the pyramid in this sick society, so why shouldn’t they have the trappings? Why not blow the filthy lucre on toys? That’s how you win, right? Right?

    Shaq gives away a bunch of money, regularly, and he invests in people, regularly. There are loads of rich people who have much more wretched excess to answer for than a big, goofy truck.

    I mean, this truck is about the level of excess this board can muster.

    OK, I missed the note about whose truck it is. It's still large heavy jewelry, but why not?

    In addition to Rob’s comments I must add a reference to Shaq’s wicked and very quick sense of humor. I love listening to interviews.

    You need to be 7' 2" to step into it without a ladder.
