Shaquille O’Neal Hangs Out with 7’4″ Tall 12-Year Old

Can you imagine how difficult life would be for you if you were 7’4″ tall? Now imagine you are 7’4″ tall and you are only 12 years old! Well that is the case for 12-year old Brenden Adams who was recently featured on the Oprah Winfrey show. Brenden has a terribly hard time finding clothes and often is the subject of long stares from people when he walks around in public.

Well Oprah enlisted the help of her superstar basketball playing friend Shaquille O’Neal to fulfill Brenden’s dream of meeting his favorite celebrity. At 7’2″ tall and 350lbs, Shaq is no stranger to sticking out like a sore thumb in a crowd (especially with his tiny girlfriend Nikki Alexander), and was happy to hang out with Brenden for a couple days. Shaq even brought Brenden to his personal tailor to get fitted for some new threads.

Shaquille O’Neal is a real class act, and I have a lot of respect for the big fella for making Brenden Adams dreams come true….Enjoy the video (sorry audio is dubbed over, but the original was taken off of YouTube):

    i go to school with brendon he is really cool

    • hanifa siraj

      Are you serious that must be cool

    • Fuck you

      You people are so fucking stupid…

      • Jim Trebowski

        You must be a conservative.

        • James Wheeler

          Where’s the rest of your insult ammunition from your liberal handbag Jimmy Boy?! I guess this hasn’t escalated to the point of getting upset and unleashing the words “RACIST” and “IGNORANT”!! Usually these worn out words are used when a left winger knows he/she are up against the wall losing an argument or lying all together. It’s the liberals go to weapon in a sticky situation! lol I get a kick out of Liberals,

        • Tommythecat

          That escalated quickly.

        • troikastar

          Who escalated what?

        • Justin

          Easy, tiger. Everything’s okay. What you are experiencing is residual butthurt from a past experience. It is not Jim’s fault. It will heal with time, only if you don’t want to end up a hateful, bitter old man that everyone avoids like the plague.

        • Justin

          And really, you consider “You people are so fucking stupid…” to be an argument so great that it puts it’s receiver “up against a wall”, and causes him to be “losing an argument”? You call out the “liberal” for his bullshit, but not your “conservative” buddy who was even more stupid? So typical. In my experience, it’s the “conservatives” who love to use insults with no substance, and intentionally continue to do so after I call them out on it. I feel it’s nothing but the party of “trolls”. Whenever I talk to one of you, I either get “the kid who’s a schoolyard bully” or “The kid who’s throwing a temper tantrum” (you are the latter trying to be the former). If you want to make a difference, why don’t you direct your anger towards how the people in your own party behave, because that’s why none of the rest of us like you. Most of you are just a bunch of hollering, condescending meatheads that refuse to discuss anything like an adult.

        • Justin

          Eeeasy, tiger. Everything’s okay. Your incoherent, angry ramblings indicate residual butthurt from a past experience. Don’t worry, it will heal with time, but only if you don’t want to end up as a bitter old man that everyone avoids like the black plague.

  • MADTurnIP

    Does that kid have Marfan’s Syndrome? Tall, arachnoidism (big hands and feet on long limbs), high arched pallet and heart problems? Same thing Michael Phelps has.

    • jdemfg

      He has the features of someone with Marfan’s. I have a couple of friends that had it. The heart is a real problem for them. Two of them have passed away.

    • Hanifa Siraj

      Ass hole you are so stupid and retarded you’re the one that is retarded and disrespectful what is you were like that and someone said that to you. Shaq is a really nice person unlike you and I don’t think you’ll ever be nice.

    • shlebbernator

      Hey guys, stop using retard as a derogatory term to describe each other’s stupidity. You are all just doing the same thing the original, uneducated ignoramus did when he posted that comment that go your panties all in a twist. He had no right to say that, but he was also obviously looking for a reaction (trolling…), and you all just made yourselves look like jackasses feeding into it. And to Brenden, I am totally jealous you got to meet THE SHAQ!!! You are one lucky kid :D

    • Martin Bogar

      yeah, this retarded kid has just about same IQ as you.

    This 12 year old boy is so AMAZING!!! Shaq was so blessed to meet Brenden. I bet one day Brendan will be meeting up with kids who are also tall, and showing them what great achievements can be made. :). As for ppl that post negative comments, they are just insecure ppl in there own skin… Seriously !!

  • The Truth

    So Shaq does aomething nice once in a while,and that makes up for all the other douchebaggery he does on the regular ? I think not.
    Shaq is still a Big Douche.

    Shaq is very generous and considerate with his fans.

    Omg that kid is super tall, has he ever been tested for Marfans syndrome??

      Yeah he should be tested for Martians syndrome! What if he is a Martian..he kind of looks like a mix between a bug and a daddy longlegs spider

    People REALLY need to learn to get to know someone first without making a stupid ass rude judgemental comment. shouldnt do that at ALL. LEARN RESPECT

  • Jimi

    I’m guessing he will have some serious health problems if he doesn’t stop growing. Best wishes Brendan

  • stowthrones

    Dr. ONeal (Ed. D) is definitely a class act.

  • hddragracer

    somethin’ weird about that tall kid. He’s tall yea. But he is also something else

  • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

    Shaq is a really awesome guy.

  • ObserverMI

    Way to go Shaq, appreciate the class.

  • EverAlwaysRealLife

    Feel bad for the kid, 7 foot 4 and only 12 years old, life expectancy will be probably be around 30 if he keeps growing

  • dick head

    • ScottS42444

      Trying to figure out the Shaq situation with his tiny girlfriend. Surprised she can walk.

    I could have seen this without the obnoxiously loud music in the background. Good story never the less.

    Is there a video without the annoying shit excuse for music.

      Unfortunately no. So sorry. May just strip the audio and re-upload. Sorry.

  • MystiKasT

    Blacks are a huge problem. They commit 52% of all violent crime (though they are only 13% of the population), 75% of blacks have, or have had, at least 1 STD. 90% of black children are born without a father. Welfare, racism for whites, etc. — blacks are screwed up and need to get their act together or go back to africa!!

    • Zabaniya

      could you um…provide the sources for those statistics?

    • marvin evans

      Pussy, shut the fuck up. Dumb ass white people like yourself need to get a fucking life you racist piece of shit. As stupid as you sound, there are whites on welfare just as well, you talk about blacks committing crimes, what about the school shooters that are white, the child pedophiles that are white, serial killers that are white because they grew up in bad conditions and been abused by their parents and flip the fuck out because they can’t control themselves and murder people. I guess it goes to show your ignorance to make a dumb as comment like that. But that’s what you pieces of shit do, troll and make dumb ass comments behind a keyboard but would never confront a black person to their face and call them names or even repeat the last line you typed to their face. You’re all the same and hide behind stupid ass avatars because you’re afraid to show what bitch asses you really are. White people are screwed up just as much. You have rich white kids who grow up getting what they want and get greedy and take out their parents to inherit the trust fund or family riches. All of you jerkoffs can do nothing but call names and make racial comments but would never expose yourself to the world because you’re nothing but lowlife scum pieces of shit who hide like cockroaches when the lights on. What’s funny is that you pricks who may go to church on Sundays and think you’re christian or whatever denomination you so call claim to be, THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL YOU WOULD EVER BE ALLOWED TO WALK THROUGH THE PEARLY GATES. Satan will be waiting with a slow rowboat for all of you pieces of shit. Have a great day.

      What on earth made you post such a mean spirited

      comment? This was a nice article.

  • bobcollum

    Good man, Shaq. Bet he never thought he’d have to look up to see a 12-year old’s face.

  • Eric Slattery

    I feel sorry for him, because that is usually a sign of cancer or disease in the brain if it happens that early in life. :(

  • jeff

    lol

  • CashMcCall

    That kid has some serious like ah…. monster teeth… there.

  • Suke Mahpeen

    Shaq has Moobs…

  • Richard Canipe

    how did Shaquille O’Neal got really that tall in the first place?

  • Think about it

    What is really sad, is that kids who are treated differently because they are taller, may come here looking for info on Shaq, like I just did…and have to read all the garbage comments. Someone needs to bring in a broom and clean the place up.
