Shaquille O’Neal did some magical things on the basketball court when he was in his prime.

At 45-years-old, Shaq is now trying to do some magic off the court. Only the magic he’s trying to do involves wands and rabbits, not basketballs.

Shaq illusions featuring @cole_connor555 @jessica_k_connor and my main man Kash Connor @chrisangelofficial can’t even do that

Whoa! How did he do that!? Oh he probably just had the kids hind behind the wall to the left quietly, but still that’s pretty cool.

While his first trick isn’t that impressive, it’s pretty neat that Shaq is starting to pick up a new hobby. Then again, this may not be a new hobby for the big man.

Genies and magicians are kind of the same thing at the end of the day.

While we only have one Instagram video to judge Shaq’s magic potential, we have many more to judge that Shaq is an A+ Instagram user.
