If you need more Shaquille O’Neal in your life, HBO has you covered.
The first episode of a new four-part documentary about O’Neal airs on HBO on Wednesday. Entitled “SHAQ,” the series takes a closer look at the life, career and legacy of the NBA legend and features interviews with the likes of Jerry West, Pat Riley, Phil Jackson, Penny Hardaway and Dwyane Wade.
“We’ve kept this documentary realistic from the start, and I feel like this is the most honest look into my life and career to date,” said O’Neal. “This process has allowed me to reflect publicly in a way I haven’t before and I’m so proud of the work everyone has done to bring it all together.”
O’Neal is one of the greatest players in NBA history. The No. 1 pick in the 1992 NBA draft, he won 15 All-Star selections, 14 All-NBA selections, four championships, three Finals MVP awards, and one Finals MVP award during his career in the Hall of Fame regular season. He was named to both the NBA’s 50th and 75th anniversary teams.
