Dr. O’Neal will see you now!

That’s right…former NBA All-Star and current TNT color analyst, Shaquille O’Neal earned his doctorate in education this weekend from Barry University Saturday in Miami, Florida.

Education has always been one of O’Neal’s passions, in addition pursuing his education was a promise that he made to his parents.

O’Neal left Louisiana State University early for the NBA, but went back to school and earned his bachelor’s degree and then a master’s degree.

Shaq wrote his thesis on the value of humor in leadership, because he says he’s a natural leader who loves to laugh.

He says he wants to become a motivational speaker and plans to go to law school.

Well Shaq is definitely dispelling the myth that jocks are dumb.

Your J.G.F.,
