Shaquille O'Neal and new gal pal Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander don't exactly match up.

The recently retired (and previously married) basketball star, 39, stands nearly two feet taller than his gal – O'Neal is 7' 1" tall, while his leading lady, 28, is just 5' 2".

The tattooed duo, spotted shopping over the weekend in Calabasas, Calif., appeared to be struggling to share a kiss, thanks to the 23-in. height difference. O'Neal awkwardly bent down while Alexander struck a tippy-toed pose.

The couple may not line up size-wise, but they do share a common tie when it comes to sports.



Alexander – who got the nickname "Hoopz" during her winning season on VH1's Flavor of Love reality show – was a star basketball player in high school and continues to play the sport regularly for fun.
