It’s not unusual for a kid to get too rowdy in a store, but it’s not every day that Shaquille O’Neal is there to give them a lesson on the importance of listening to their parents.
Yet that’s exactly what happened to a basketball fan named Zion! When O’Neal noticed this sweet kid crying, he couldn’t help but ask what was wrong. After getting the details, he encouraged Zion to apologize and give his dad a hug. This alone would have earned O’Neal many thanks from Zion’s parents, but his kindness didn’t end there.
Even though Zion’s family was just planning on buying him a coat, O’Neal not only offered to buy him new shoes, but he also helped the boy find the perfect pair! During this unforgettable shopping trip, Zion even got the chance to show O’Neal videos of himself playing basketball, which earned him high praise from the superstar. Needless to say, Zion’s day was made! Watch Zion’s once in a lifetime opportunity in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story to make someone smile.
