Shaquille O'Neal found himself in a hairy situation after losing a bet against Dwyane Wade. The NBA Hall of Famer who said the Milwaukee Bucks would beat the Miami Heat on Monday night vowed to grow out his hairline after losing the wager.
"Lets just get it out of the way America, I had a bet against one of my good friends, Dwayne Wade. I said Milwaukee was gonna win by 20 and the Heat won," O'Neal said on TNT. "I said 'What do you want me to do, pay you?' He said, 'No, you gotta let your hairline grow. I wanna see your hairline looking like Kenny Smith.' I just lined it up for y'all, so y'all can see where my hairline starts."
With his hairline going all the way back to biblical times, O'Neal made himself the subject of internet ridicule.
The Sacramento Kings' social media team also joined the fun, using the hairline to represent the halftime score between the Kings and the Washington Wizards.

The former NBA player appears to be back in good spirits after the loss of Kobe Bryant. During Bryant's memorial at the Staples Center, O'Neal had the audience laughing at a funny memory between the two former teammates.
The former Los Angeles Lakers center recalled a time when he told Bryant that “There is no ‘I' in team." O’Neal said Bryant responded, saying "I know but there's an 'M-E' in that motherf**ker."
But O'Neal is no stranger to telling jokes and pulling pranks. Last year, the NBA legend prank-called ESPN's Stephen A. Smith during his radio show, posing as a Dallas Cowboys' fan named Tex Johnson.
In 2015, O'Neal was the victim of a prank when his colleagues at TNT showed him a fake list of the top centers in the NBA and he was named the ninth-best of all time. The All-Star also joined The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2016 and pulled pranks on people in public.In regards to his latest haircut, O'Neal said he is proud of it and he plans to keep it for another week.
"I look good and I'm proud to do it," he said.
That sure is a steep price to pay for losing a bet.
