Former NBA star earned his doctorate in education from Barry University in Florida.
When asked why it was important for him to get an education, he said:
“One thing that can never be taken away from you is your education. I know I cannot play basketball forever, but one thing they always told me was if you have an education you always have something to fall back on.”
His message to others:
“If Shaq can do it, you can do it too.”
It was a proud moment for Shaq and his family.
So, congratulations to Dr. Shaq and best wishes on his future endeavors!
