BOSTON — Shaq's planning his next public stunt — and it's going to be magical.
The 7-foot, 1-inch Celtics player said on Thursday's Emily Rooney Show that he'll levitate over the TD Garden, with a little help.
"Now, listen. I asked Criss Angel to levitate me over the top of the TD Boston Garden and he said yes so we just have to figure out a date," O'Neal said.
It will be the latest in a string of pranks, stunts and mini-performances that have endeared Shaquille O'Neal to Boston, a city that became his home when he joined the Celtics last fall.
On Halloween, O'Neal and his girlfriend, Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, filmed a short video of Shaq dancing in drag, assuming the character of his female alter-ego, Shaquita. Earlier in the fall, he drew crowds when he posed silently as a statue in Harvard Square.
