When the Boston Celtics signed Shaquille O'Neal there was a sense of excitement around the team to have such a big personality and talented player join an already talented line-up. During the first half of the season, Shaq didn't disappoint — when he was on the court.

The future Hall of Famer has spent a lot of time on the sidelines because of injuries and in the meantime, he's being Shaq and is making himself more accessible to the public. He's embraced social media and is being the transparent Shaq.

Take his recent birthday video. He's a little full of himself, but seems like he's having fun with it all. However, as a die hard member of Celtic's Nation, I'd rather have him on the court as opposed to on YouTube making jokes.
