This Monday, the great Shaquille O’Neal, now playing for the Boston Celtics, made his conducting debut, leading the Boston Pops Orchestra and Tanglewood Festival Chorus at the Holiday Pops Concert. You’ll immediately recognize the tunes: the Christmas standard, “Sleigh Ride,” leading into Queen’s power ballad “We Are the Champions.”

The big guy sure does have his fun, doesn’t he? Seriously, love him now. But where’d he get that tux so big??
Does this prove definitively that the conductor really has no bearing on the performance once and for all?
