OK, so we knew Shaquille O’Neal was an awful free-throw shooter during his NBA playing days.

But, jeez, losing to a two-year-old? Shaq, have you no shame?

The free-throw contest between O’Neal and two-year-old phenom Titus Ashby, which aired on an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and was billed Clash of the Titus, wasn’t even close. The three-foot tall toddler out-scored the 7-foot-1 O’Neal 8-0 in the modified — Titus shot at a basket his height from six feet while Shaq shot at a basket at his height from a distance of 18 feet — 30-second challenge.

Considering O’Neal’s career free throw percentage — a lousy .527 — it should come as no surprise that he’d lose, even if if was to someone half his size and 39 years his junior. But he does hold the edge in NBA championship rings, 4-0, over tiny Titus.
