Karl-Anthony Towns Does a Mean Shaq Impression

The 2015 NBA Draft No. 1 pick has a good sense of humor.

Published December 10, 2015

There isn't a player-turned-analyst that likes to have more fun than Shaquille O'Neal.

Well, instead of doling out the jokes on Wednesday night, the four-time NBA champion was on the receiving end when the 2015 NBA Draft's No. 1 pick Karl-Anthony Towns did a spot-on impression of O'Neal live on the air on NBA TV.

The 20-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves center delivered Shaq's "BBQ chicken" one-liner to near perfection, drawing big laughs from the man himself.

In return, O'Neal called Towns a "seven-foot Drake," to which the rookie laughed and immediately did Drizzy's dance from the "Hotline Bling" video.

Funny stuff.

Towns had just posted 26 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks to lead the T-Wolves to a 123-122 home win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.
