A group of Florida got a BIG surprise when basketball star Shaquille O’ Neal showed up to play a game of basketball with them.
Earlier this month, a Florida police officer responded to a call about children being too loud playing basketball outside, but instead of scolding the children, Officer Bobby White joined them in their game and promised to return for another one. White returned on Saturday with a group of other officers and Shaq.
Shaq’s expressed interest in meeting the officers and joining them in the rematch after he saw the dashcam video online, that has since been gone viral.
“These kids will never forget the day Shaq rolled up to their house to play ball,” the police department said in a statement.
The seven-foot-one giant not only played in the rematch, but encouraged the children to work hard and achieve their goals.
