The Doctor of Fun: Shaquille O’Neal is a children’s author now
Shaquille O’Neal is always searching for non-basketball endeavors. Whether it’s earning one of his many degrees, becoming a reserve police officer in Miami or working on an entertainment career that’s included acting and rapping, Shaq is always promoting one, singular brand: himself.
Shaq’s not a person anymore. He’s an institution. He’s the Olsen Twins—except twice as big as both of them combined. And now, like Mary-Kate and Ashley, he’s creating content for kids.
That’s right, Shaq is now a children’s author, and we have video of the future Hall of Famer visiting the New York Public Library on a promotional tour to prove it.
The book is called "Little Shaq" and, we assume, is meant to teach kids the definition of "oxymoron."
"I kind of want to get back to the basics and just help children have fun," Shaq said in the video. "I want to be known as ‘The Doctor of Fun.’"
Well, there you have it. Shaq has a new self-appointed nickname to add to the resume. That said, someone should really tell the Doctor of Fun that all of this isn’t going to make us forget about "Kazaam."
