It's fair to say Mike Trudell handles unwanted touching better than most. In the middle of a sideline report at a recent Lakers game, Trudell was surprised with a massive hand stroking its palm over the reporter's hair.

But the hand was so large that Trudell, in keeping his eyes squarely on the camera, couldn't be sure it was a hand at all. Trudell held it together as best he could until he identified the assailant.

Who else is brazen enough to walk up to random people and fondle their heads in the middle of work? Only Shaquille O'Neal.




As fun a story as that might be to tell, the real winner in this scenario is the world at large, which now has video proof that Shaq could easily palm the head of a grown man.


For that, we'll all sleep better tonight.
