Shaquille O’Neal graduated with his doctorate from Barry University this past Saturday…
Like all things done by the four-time world champion, 15-time All-Star, movie star, rapper and entertainer, O’Neal, 40, accepted the degree in style. Wearing a custom-made, bright red XXXL-sized gown, the seven-foot-one, 325-pound former Miami Heat center got on one knee so Dr. David M. Kopp could place a light blue hood around his big neck.
O’Neal then stood up and lifted his professor like Tarzan was rescuing Jane….
On his way back to his seat, O’Neal strolled by a star struck row of graduates and handed out high-fives like he was walking past his old teammates on the bench.
Here are some clips from a press conference after the ceremony…
