Tim McGraw Narrates Documentary About Shaq

Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw will be the narrator for a TV documentary about basketball star Shaquille O’Neal and LSU coach Dale Brown.

“I hope you didn’t come all this way expecting to hear a story just about basketball,” says McGraw in the film’s trailer. “About a team that couldn’t quite win the way everyone expected them to. I hope you didn’t settle in just to remember what it looked like when the player, bigger and better than all the others, ruled college basketball. And I hope you don’t think that just because one is white, and the other’s black … one’s a little younger, and one is a little older … one was a coach, and the other was a player … that two men couldn’t become very best of friends.”

“Shaq and Dale” will air on the SEC Network on April 13.
