Dr. Shaquille “Shaq” O'Neal refuses to stop growing. The 7 foot 1 inch tall retired Basketball Hall of Fame center was born with the natural abilities that helped make him an NBA legend. Off the court, his fierce drive to better himself and his community has led him to a life of service to others. Today, Shaq is an auxiliary deputy with the Broward Sheriff's Office, and he stopped by Shop Talk with the Sheriff to discuss what life can offer if you stop, listen and learn from those around you.

“A lot of people look at me, and yeah, I’m Shaq and all that, but I became Shaq by looking at people better than me and smarter than me,” Shaq said. “Even though I’m Shaq, I still look at people who inspire me.”

Listen to Part 1 of Sheriff Tony’s interview with Shaq for free here or on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and Pocket Casts, iHeartRadio, Breaker, Overcast, RadioPublic and Castbox.
