"Big Two": It is Entirely Possible That Shaq Can't Count to Three

Former Heat star Shaquille O'Neal made his big debut as an NBA analyst today on an show announcing the release of the season schedule. He had nice things to say about the Heat actually, which was refreshing in the wake of Charles Barkley's mouth's year-long perpetual word vomit. Unless, of course, you're Chris Bosh. He only referred to the Heat's "Big Two."

Though, have we considered the very possible reality that Shaq just can't count to three?

"The Miami Heat, they've got a lot of great players, the 'Big 2.' They will be back," O'Neal said during the NBA TV broadcast.

That of course lead to insinuation that he was insulting Chris Bosh (and just days after his wedding, how very rude). ESPN lead the charge with the Bosh-bashing angle.

Though, we've read Shaq's Twitter, watched his films, listened to his hip-hop albums, and we're wondering if he can actually count to three. I mean, it wouldn't surprise us.

Maybe he can take counting lesson from LeBron James. We all know he can count to at least eight.
