Shaquille O’Neal Into LA Sports Hall of Fame Saturday
I think we can safely say that there is no ‘bigger’ star in the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame than Shaquille O’Neal. National College Player of the Year. No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft. More than one NBA Champion and multiple regular season and postseason MVP. Olympic Gold Medalist. Member of NBA at 50. Whew! And that doesn’t even include his multiple film, TV, and commercial endeavors.
Now he’ll add another honor to that - induction into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. O’Neal is part of the 2013 class that includes fellow LSU icons Tommy Hodson and Kevin Mawae, both of football fame.
They will be inducted during a sold-out ceremony Saturday, June 29 in Natchitoches. Congrats to Shaq, and the rest of the class of 2013 – Louisiana is so proud of you!
