O’NEIL IN ACTION

The Alachua County Sheriff Department Facebook account shared the dashcam footage online and quickly gained many views. The caption read:

BIG MEN WITH BIG HEARTS

O’Neil is known to be a good samaritan who helps others when he can. In 2018, TMZ caught the seven-footer assisting drivers in a Los Angeles car wreck.

The basketball icon’s revelation came in light of the brutal death of George Floyd, who died in the hands of a white cop.

Similarly, another NBA legend, the late Kobe Bryant, was also known for taking the initiative to lend a hand, including aiding people in an Orange County traffic accident before.

INTERACTING WITH POLICE

It seems the two stars have it well with the authorities despite being men of color. However, Shaquille admitted that he already had conversations with his children about how to interact with officers. He said:

“I tell them, first of all, you have to try to diffuse the situation by showing respect because you have to understand that these people are also out here doing their job.”

He also told his kids to remain silent and comply with what the police say when things are a little heated amid the encounter.

SUPPORTING THE PROTESTS

The basketball icon’s revelation came in light of the brutal death of George Floyd, who died in the hands of a white cop.

O’Neal claimed he is in full support of the peaceful protests that came after the tragic incident and said that the other officers involved should be apprehended as well.

The 15-time NBA All-Star player is a father to six children: Taahriah, Myles, Shareef, Amirah, Shaquir, and Me’aeah.

Most of his children have followed in his footsteps as a basketball player and may soon become stars on the court.
