Why Shaquille O'Neal Needs to Kiss Steve Kerr's Cheese-covered Feet

If NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal is a man of his word, he has some feet to kiss.

Steve Kerr's feet covered in cheese, to be exact.

What in the world are we talking about? Back in the mid 2000s, after appearing in four out of five NBA Finals, Shaq said this during an interview on ESPN.

"If a coach takes a team to the Finals four out of five years, I'll kiss his feet on [the TV show] Fear Factor, with cheese on it," Shaq said. "I will never be done again."

Former Warriors forward David West sent the clip to Kerr, who posted it on Twitter Monday evening.

Shaq responded a little later, and it appears he will make good on his word,

Kerr didn't just go to four out of five NBA Finals. He went to five straight NBA Finals ... in his first five years as an NBA coach.

Shaq and Kerr have a history together. Aside from playing against each other in the NBA, Kerr was the general manager of the Phoenix Suns and engineered a trade to acquire Shaq from the Heat in 2008.

Anyway, Shaq, it happened, despite your proclamation that it wouldn't. Pucker up, Big Cactus.
