Shaquille O'Neal

About Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O’Neal loves to mess around with everybody on the internet. When a teary LeBron won the championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Shaq made memes for days. After his former LA Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant retired from the game, Shaq took to social media to show his love and remember the good ol’ days (which were better with him around, of course). When an American Olympian fell down in the hurdles, he was there to post some jabs for being a “fool Olympian.” But everything he posts is out of love for his fellow athletes, celebrities, and his fans—he even took to Snapchat to document backstage scenes from his induction this year into the NBA Hall of Fame, so fans could get a look too.
