Shaquille O’Neal wants to make the world smile, one grand gesture at a time!
The NBA legend brightened a Georgia man’s day when he paid off the guy’s engagement ring debt at a jewelry store — and it was all caught on video.
On NBA on TNT Tuesday night, the former athlete explained that he was in a Zales in the Atlanta area on Monday shopping for some earrings when he noticed a man was a bit stressed about paying his bill. Shaq Daddy said he overheard the guy talking about a payment plan for the ring he bought for his girlfriend, when he felt like he had to intervene. He recalled:
“I seen the guy come in — he was just so shy. He was saying, ‘Hey, how much do I owe to pay off my ring.’ And I was like, ‘My man, how much is the ring?’ I’m not going to say the amount, but it’s not a lot for me… I was like, ‘You know what? Tell your girlfriend I got her. I’ll take care of it.’”
The guy protested, but Shaq insisted, telling him he does stuff like this “all the time.” So the ex-baller whipped out his credit card and bought the ring! AH-Mazing!
