Shaq's gotten smart, embedding a cellular phone in size 22 shoe. Who knows why—when you're a ten foot-tall Shaolin master of a world-spanning brand and kung-fu discipline, you get to do anything goofy you want. Shaq says he's thinking about using the phone, which has an antenna that extends from the toe, during games to field encouraging calls from his wife.

Not retarded at all, say our lawyers. (And no, that's not Shaq, but a teammate [Update: Or maybe Nelly]).
