Shaquille O'Neal Conducts the Boston Pops Orchestra


(Pacific Coast News | Inset: youtube.com)more pics » Shaquille O'Neal (Pacific Coast News) Shaquille O'Neal has a lot of talents -- strong inside player, a surprisingly deft outside shooter for a big man, and a good sense of the court. Add to that a pretty decent orchestra conductor.

O'Neal led the Boston Pops orchestra in a rendition of "Sleigh Ride" on Monday evening.

The 38-year-old Boston Celtics player took the stage as part of the Holiday Pops Concert, and it sounds like it was a learning experience for the star. "Actually, you know, I have a whole new respect for conductors," said Shaq. "I went through a rehearsal today, and my arms are shot right now."

You can see a video of the performance below:
