Lakers to honor Shaquille O’Neal with Staples Center statue

O’Neal was surprised with the news during ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’

The row of icons outside of Staples Center is getting a new addition:Shaquille O’Neal.

The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Wednesday, January 27 that they would honour O’Neal with a statue that will be unveiled during the 2016-17season.

‘We look forward to having Shaq join the other legends who have been honored with statues at STAPLES Center,’Jeanie Buss, Lakers president and co-owner, said in a statement.

‘He is a giant not only in size, but also in stature and in what he accomplished as a Laker.

Shaq literally broke the ground for the site, and was hugely responsible for not only getting STAPLES Center built, but for making it one of the most successful and famous arenas in the world. It’s an honor that is well deserved.’

O’Neal was surprised with the news during ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’‘Seriously?’ he asked repeatedly after Kimmel showed him an artist’s rendering of the statue. ‘That’s awesome.’

O’Neal also said on the show that if he is elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, he’ll likely enter as a Laker.
