"Well, you know, numbers of times, he could crack a team up with humorous effects on the floor. There were times when he shocked us all in a practice situation, especially when he showed up nude with just his shoes on."
Shaq didn't provide a further explanation, but Jackson isn't the first coach to dish on O'Neal's nude antics.
Former Suns coach Alvin Gentry said years ago that when Shaq played for the Suns, he would surprise teammates and coaches in the locker room by tackling them.
Here’s what ex-Suns head coach Alvin Gentry said in 2014 about the center’s time in Phoenix
"The coach said 'every few days or every week or so' the big man would come barreling around a locker room corner completely nude and tackle a teammate or coaching staff member to the ground where he would roll around with them in what he called 'Brazilian naked wrestling.'"
