As big as he is, Shaquille O’Neal’s biggest part just maybe his heart. His generosity was on full display when he decided to open up his wallet and pay for a random man’s engagement ring. In a video posted to Instagram by shaqfu_radio, O’Neal was seen passing his credit card to the cashier to pay for the ring picked out by the man making the purchase. The video has since gone viral, and Shaq was asked about the kind gesture by his co-hosts on TNT’s Postgame Show.

“I was in Zales looking for some loop earrings,” Shaquille O’Neal said, recounting the events. “I see a guy come in and he was saying, hey, how much do I owe to pay off my ring? And I was like, my man, how much is the ring? I’m not gonna say the amount, but this is something that I do every day.” 

According to Shaq, the man initially refused his offer. However, it’s probably not that difficult to be persuaded by the great Shaquille O’Neal. As he mentioned, Shaq is no stranger to opening up his wallet for other people. He once surprised a teenager with 10 pairs of shoes. He’s paid for random birthday parties and annually dons his Christmastime alter-ego, Shaq-a-Clause, to give holiday gifts to children.

You have to respect Shaq for his generosity. There are plenty of people that have his kind of money that won’t even open up their wallet for family, let alone a stranger. It feels like Shaq always finds a way to pay it forward. Props to the big man for using his money to benefit other people.
