Big Z meets Shaq

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara (6’9, 260 lbs) a ’big’ fan of the NBA, was in the TD Banknorth Garden last night to watch the Boston Celtics take on the Miami Heat.

Without their captain, Paul Pierce, the Green fell to the Heat, 91-79. Shaquille O’Neal (7’1, 325 lbs) had nine of those 91 for Miami.

Before the game, O’Neal and Chara met and exchanged notes.

Chara is the tallest man to ever play in the NHL, meanwhile with his height and strength, Shaq is one of the biggest men ever to don a basketball uniform in the NBA.

Perhaps they talked about the finer points of Shaq-Fu and wrestling?

In a related note: Chara could be seen last week in NESN video playing basketball as a warm up before their last game with the Carolina Hurricanes. The Bruins take on the ’Canes again, tonight.
