NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has cemented himself as one of the greatest players in basketball history. That being said he has a history of free throws not really working out for him. Things changed when he was DJing recently.

During his career, Shaquille O’Neal was a terrible free-throw shooter. But the Hall of Famer may have finally figured it out because he drained a shot right in the middle of his DJ set. Since retiring from the NBA in 2011, the Big Aristotle has had a successful second career as a DJ.

At a recent concert, he merged two of his hobbies by taking a tiny ball and shooting at a hoop in the crowd. But, unlike half of his career’s free throws, this one actually went in. O’Neal, who had a career free-throw percentage of 52.7 percent, was never known to be able to shoot clutch free throws late in the game yet he did it with ease this time.

Everything looked amazing, from the form to the release, and Shaq even used his trademark one-handed push shot, which everyone loved. Now, this may not have had the same weight as 20,000 spectators booing you at the free throw line in an NBA Finals game but the level of difficulty on this one attempt was pretty damn incredible.
