Shaquille O’Neal Avenges 2001 Loss to Aaron Carter, Yells ‘I Am Kazaam’ Before Draining Shot (Video)


March 7, 2013

In 2001, teen pop sensation Aaron Carter released the song “That’s How I Beat Shaq.” It’s been 12 years, but Shaquille O’Neal still isn’t over the devastating loss.

That’s why O’Neal decided to go one-on-one with Carter for TruTV. Shaq told the Backstreet Boy’s brother that if he scored a single point against the former NBA center, O’Neal would give him $5,000. It appears Carter will still have to live off his early 2000’s royalties.

The best part of the video comes at the 1:23 mark when Shaq yells, “I am Kazaam!” as he drains a shot over Carter’s head. If you’ve never seen Kazaam, Shaq’s movie about a rapping genie who grants three wishes to a kid who can’t act (or as the movie’s poster says, “He’s a rappin’ genie with an attitude… and he’s ready for some slam-dunk fun!), you aren’t missing much. And you probably weren’t 10 years old in 1996.

Watch Shaq beat Carter in the video below. It’s slam-dunk fun!
