Photos: Shaq’s LSU Statue
The Big Diesel immortalized at his alma mater.
It’s hard to recap Shaquille O’Neal’s lifetime accomplishments in a few sentences, or to describe his incredible power on the court in a handful of words. Sometimes building a giant statue is just easier. LSU’s way of honoring The Big Aristotle came Thursday, when the school unveiled a 900-pound likeness of the program’s most prominent basketball alumnus outside its hoops practice facility. (Yes, only about 580 pounds more than Shaq Fu weighed in late in his career.) Check out the photos above, from of LSU’s athletics page.
