Shaquille O’Neal Loves The Kids, Lets Them ‘Rescue’ Him From Drowning

Shaquille O’Neal has built a reputation as someone who is incredibly generous with his wealth, but a recent video also showed his child-like side. O’Neal was in Hawaii with his family vacationing. In a resort pool, he staged a drowning and allowed some kids to “rescue” him. Daniel Chavez caught the moment on video and posted it to his TikTok account.

Chavez also wrote underneath the video, in response to other users’ comments that the retired Hall of Famer is a humble superstar: “He’s mad humble,” Chavez wrote.

He also asked the 51-year-old O’Neal about the inspiration for his music and shared his response with People: “I talked to him for a little bit about his music and he said he gets his inspiration from concerts he goes to and from his own kids. I gave him a fist bump and let him hang out with the rest of his family.”

O’Neal was at the resort because he is currently on tour as DJ Diesel and he had a stop on June 14 in Honolulu. Chavez also talked for a bit about Shaq putting on a show in the hotel’s lobby, and his energy for the kids was still present. Chavez said that Shaq let a bunch of kids on the stage with him while he was performing. Even though he doesn’t play basketball anymore, it looks like DJ Diesel is always making new fans.
