Shaquille O’Neal no longer plays in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean the Los Angeles Lakers star doesn’t want to help anymore. During the holidays, the former athlete distributed thousands of consoles so that young players could try new products.
Shaquille O’Neal gave a very interesting story in a recent interview. The former athlete decided to make the children happy in December, so he called a friend and took care of a very large order – 1000 PlayStation 5 and 1000 Nintendo Switch.
The NBA legend has been trying to help those in need for many years and even after the end of his career, he does not give up sharing the acquired and constantly growing wealth. The former Los Angeles Lakers star recalled during his podcast Garvey his childhood story:
“My father was a training sergeant, and my mother was just a hardworking woman. They had little, but they taught me that engagement is worth it. They taught me the value of helping those in need.”
That’s why Shaquille O’Neal made a call to a friend and visited McDonough Elementary School in Georgia just before Christmas, where he handed out keyboards and extra bikes he had bought.
“I ordered about 1,000 Switch and 1,000 PS5. I went to Walmart and bought bikes. You know, yesterday at the little McDonough Elementary School in Georgia the kids were crying, the kids were happy. And that’s it.
Given current prices and the problem with access to consoles, Shaquille O’Neal had to spend several hundred thousand dollars.
Shaquille O’Neal bought 1000 PS5 and Nintendo Switches and gave them to the kids this Christmas.
