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.
