ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most fun people around the NBA to spend any time around, mainly because with Shaq, the impossible quickly become a reality. Watching an awards show so you just get up and dance? Sure.
Visit the police force, show off your skills on a shooting range and leave behind a humorous message? Totally Shaq.
And it isn’t all fun and games. While Shaq was in Louisiana last week to be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, he announced his intention to build a children’s hospital in Baton Rouge. According to the Tiger Rag…
“I wasn’t supposed to announce this, but I’m going to do it anyway,” Dr. O’Neal said. “I had a talk with the powers that be in Baton Rouge, and my plan is to build a Shaquille O’Neal children’s hospital. That’s my plan, so that right now is in the works, and hopefully it gets done. ”
Dr. O’Neal said the idea has been discussed for two years, and his goal is to join with Our Lady of the Lake “to build the biggest, freest hospital in the state of Louisiana.”
“All sick children can come for free,” he said. “That’s my vision.”
