Shaquille O'Neal jokes that Stevie Wonder isn't really blind after elevator encounter

Shaquille O'Neal isn't convinced that Stevie Wonder is blind after a funny encounter in an elevator.

The NBA legend, 47, was co-hosting "Inside The NBA" on Thursday night when he told a quick story that he promised, "you're not gonna believe."

"It's a true story," O'Neal explained. "So, we live in a building on Wilshire. So you park your car and the valet's down there. So I'm already in the building, I'm coming through the lobby. Door opens, it's Stevie Wonder. He comes in, says, 'What's up, Shaq?' Presses the button."
