Stephen: Shaq pays off man’s engagement ring
A Georgia man received quite the surprise at a local jeweler as he was trying to work out a payment plan for an engagement ring. The NBA legend, Shaquille O’Neal overheard the conversation and surprised the total stranger and bought the ring! The Big Diesel explained how it all went down on “NBA on TNT” on Tuesday night, he was in a Zales in the Atlanta area shopping for some earrings when he noticed a man was stressing over a bill.
“I seen the guy come in — he was just so shy,” Shaq said. “He was saying, ‘Hey, how much do I owe to pay off my ring.'” “And I was like, ‘My man, how much is the ring?’ I’m not going to say the amount, but it’s not a lot for me.” So, Shaq whipped out his credit card and paid for it right on the spot! “He was a young kid, a hardworking guy,” said Shaq. “I’m into making people happy,” said Shaq. “So, whenever I leave the house I just try to do a good deed.”
