The Big Statue of Shaquille O’Neal

A statue of LA Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal a.k.a Shaq has been unveiled at a star-studded ceremony held on Friday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The event was graced by fellow Lakers legends Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar among others, who also played on hand for the game match against the Timberwolves.

The four (4) honoured the celebrated former NBA star with great speeches while Magic Johnson paid a tribute to him in a video message saying “you came in and took the city by storm with your play, but also with your personality.”

The Staples Center assumed the status of the ShaqTown owing to the fact that the streets were decorated with paraphernalia of  Shaq and LA Lakers.

Shaq O’Neal becomes the fifth Laker to ever receive the honor of a statue outside of Staples Center.
