New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is often teased about his size, but on Friday, he finally found someone bigger than him: former basketball star Shaquille O’Neal.

Christie posted this photo on Twitter of him shaking hands with O’Neal, who stands just over 7 feet tall, at his office in Trenton. Christie told the Daily Record the former NBA star was in town to talk about getting involved in the state's gun buyback program.

The governor praised O'Neal, saying, he had "good ideas." He added, "We'll do something with him."
