Shaq Plays Santa: Here’s The Toys He Chose For 9 NBA Stars

, ,

Have some holiday spirit, because the real Santa made us watch a Knicks game on Christmas.

1. When Shaq came to BuzzFeed earlier this month, we gave him a list of some of the NBA’s biggest stars. We put a pile of gifts in front of him and asked him to pick one for each of the players on the list.
