Shaquille O'Neal Wants To Fight Danny Ainge

Paging Danny Ainge: you're wanted in the ring. 

A seven-foot-one, 325-pound former rapper, actor, dancer, NBA All-Star and employee has expressed interest in fighting the Celtics' General Manager. 

Of course, when Shaq told Inside MMA that he'd like to fight Ainge, he wasn't asking for a duel. 

He was just rattling off a list of NBA players that he'd like to fight, including Charles Oakley and Charles Barkley, Karl Malone and Xavier McDaniel. 

While it's hard to see just what Ainge has in common with any of those players, O'Neal wasn't interested in avenging any past battles. 

"He once bit Tree Rollins' finger, nearly off, in a fight," said O'Neal, "so he's got a little bit of tenacity."

While we can't argue with Shaq's logic, it's hard to ignore the fact that both Dennis Rodman - whom caused problems with just about anybody who came near him in the paint - and Kobe Bryant - who shares a checkered history with The Big AARP - were omitted from the list.
