Shaquille O’Neal is no stranger to being considered one of the game’s most powerful inside player ever.

Once you get past the 7-1, 320-pound frame that screams power, however, it became pretty easy to see early in his career he was light on his feet — on and off the court. Today is the big man’s 41st birthday. Here are some of his best quotes — proving he’s as deft with a microphone as he is on the low block.

*Be careful what you ask, because SHAQ will loop you into the answer if it’s a bad enough question.

*You thought SHAQ was going to retire — until he led off his press conference with a dig at the Knicks’ haywire GM job. At 1:35, he calls himself the Phil Jackson of little league basketball.

*Speaking of Phil Jackson, SHAQ‘s take on the legendary Triangle Offense: “Our offense is like the Pythagorean Theorem. There is no answer.”

*Here among another list of SHAQ‘s top quotes is this gem on his alma mater, LSU, at 1:22: “LSU stands for Love Shaq University … can you dig it?”

*SHAQ on the good things in life: “Me having a beautiful wife and great family and friends around me, all the money I’ve got, all the things that I’ve got, a Ferrari that I just ripped the top off of and turned into a convertible, the rings I got, the two mansions on the water, a master’s in criminal justice, I’m a cop, plus I look good. So me shooting 40 percent at the foul line is just God’s way of saying that nobody’s perfect. If I shot 90 percent from the line, it just wouldn’t be right.”
