Former Miami Heat center Shaquille O’Neal has been ordered by a federal court in Miami to make himself available for a potential embarrassing deposition before Nov. 30. The order came Wednesday after O’Neal, now an NBA analyst and commercial pitchman, had argued he doesn’t have to sit down with the attorney for disfigured fan Jahmel Binion. The lawsuit was filed after Binion tried to reach out to Shaq last year on Twitter. Instead of a fun exchange with a superstar, Binion was mocked by Shaq because his face was grossly distorted by a rare genetic disease. Shaq has apologized, saying he thought Binion had makeup on and that he was messing with him.
