In his prime, Shaquille O’Neal was exactly the kind of physical specimen that ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue was created to highlight, but these days the seven-footer is enjoying retirement and doesn’t have all that basketball to keep his body lean and mean.

O’Neal decided to borrow the sculpted body of former teammate Dwyane Wade, who is featured on the cover of this year’s Body Issue, and the results are very, very hilarious.

Perhaps Shaq is just trying to catch the ladies' attention, as the release of Wade’s photographs certainly got his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, in a frisky state of mind.
