Shaq Beats Tyson Gay In A Sprint. Kind Of.

Two weeks ago, when Shaquille O'Neal signed with the Celtics, he said, "I cannot wait to get to Boston to get started in pursuit of another championship." Which I guess means having some races with Tyson Gay, Maurice Greene, DeSean Jackson, Chris Johnson and Dwight Howard for his reality show. Super focused on the upcoming season, clearly. 

It's a clip from Wednesday nights "Shaq Vs," in which O'Neal battled Rachael Ray in a hamburger making contest and then teamed-up with Howard, Johnson and Jackson to try and "outrun sprinter Tyson Gay in a 200-meter relay race."

But then they saw Maurice Greene walking by and invited him to join, too? And Shaq decided he didn't want Jackson on his relay team anymore? Not really sure, but I don't think that race was held under strict USA Track & Field guidelines.
