Shaq using social media to stay in spotlight

How did Shaquille ONeal celebrate the holiday weekend? By tweeting new videos he posted on Tout, of course.

Lets start on a serious note. Well, as serious as Shaq gets in these clips (there always seems to be a touch of humor in them).

ONeal underwent surgery on his right Achilles tendon and gave a glimpse of the cast, which he says he will wear for two months. ONeal played less than 20 minutes in the second half of the last season, including two playoffs games, due to injuries.

And if you just happen to bump into Shaq on the street, he told his fans they can sign his cast if they see him.

ONeal also directed his Twitter followers to his Facebook page where he is holding a vote, i have graphic crazy pictures from my achilles surgery. should i post them? you decide. (So far the majority is an overwhelming yes.)

But there had to be something more uplifting than surgery, especially during 4th of July weekend, right?

ONeal proved crutches couldnt hold him back from having a good time, as he tweeted, I wanna b a chris brown back up dancer and posted a video of himself dancing.

He also shared some festive fireworks with his viewers to celebrate the holiday.

Don't expect O'Neal's surgery to hold him back. Just over a week ago, he posted a video saying, "Back to work. I'm making a big announcement in two weeks of where I'm gonna be. You know the theme song."

While rumors were swirling about a possible Paul George deal on draft night, a bunch of people were tweeting at Jae Crowder, ready to send him to Indiana in a deal.

Crowder, who isn't shy on social media, liked the series of tweets, perhaps saving them as motivation for later.

Crowder had a couple noteworthy moments on Twitter this past season. The first was when he fired back at Celtics fans after the TD Garden cheered for Jazz forward Gordon Hayward. He also exchanged comments with Devin Booker after the Suns guard's 70-point game against the Celtics
