Willie Geist Takes On Shaquille O'Neal In One-On-One Game

He may be smaller, he may be shorter, but Willie Geist put up a good fight against NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal.

The two went one-on-one Wednesday morning and despite the rough start, Geist was able to get a shot off past the 7'1'' basketball star. If things as a television news host don't work out, at least he may have a future in the NBA.

Watch:

When asked about his future plans to join the NBA, Geist told TVNewser that he would "certainly have to look at all my options and ultimately do what’s right for me and my family."
