Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O’Neal may be one of the biggest basketball stars of all time, literally and figuratively, but that doesn’t mean that he’s forgotten where he came from.

This week, word of O’Neal’s goodwill was spreading rapidly via social media, after the former pro athlete took the plight of one single mother to heart.

Zach Keith, a 13-year-old middle school student who plays basketball and football, already wears a size 18 shoe. As the American average male shoe size is a 10.5, his mother, Brittany, finds it difficult not only to find a pair of shoes that will fit her son, but also a pair that she’s able to afford.

Brittany, who is a single mom, posted a plea for help for her 6’2″-tall son on Instagram, writing, “if you can do anything to help I will be so appreciative.”

Shaq then sprung into action.

Upon learning of the family’s situation, CNN affiliate WGCL in Atlanta reached out to Shaquille O’Neal, who was more than happy to have the opportunity to pay it forward.

“I reminisced back how that used to be me, my mom and my dad,” O’Neal told WGCL of Zach’s story.

When O’Neal was trying to find size 18 penny loafers for his prom ensemble, his father eventually found Friedman’s Shoes in Atlanta. The owner of the shoe store, Bruce Teilhaber, gave Shaq a pair of shoes for free and ever since O’Neal, now a size 22, has frequented his business.

“Bruce did it for me, and I just want to return the favor,” O’Neal said.

O’Neal surprised Zach and his family at Friedman’s. There, Shaq generously bought the teenager ten pairs of shoes.

The gesture overwhelmed young Zach, who was both surprised and extremely thankful for the help.

Nobody plays follow the leader better than a Democrat politician. If one calls for X, the next has to call for X plus one. It’s a snowball effect. Joe Biden is now apparently for defunding law enforcement. From Fox News: Joe Biden said in an interview Wednesday that some funding should “absolutely” be redirected from police, amid calls from some in his party to “defund the police” in the wake of the protests across the country. Biden’s campaign has said he does not support defunding the police. But in a Now This interview with activist Ady Barkan, the presumptive Democratic nominee said that police forces don’t need surplus military equipment, saying this is what leads them to “become the enemy” in a community.

Failed Dem Candidate Receives ‘Anonymous’ Racist Letter, Turns Out He Wrote It to Himself

Paging Jussie!

Democrats are the best. It’s as if they honestly believe they can get away with anything, no matter how heinous, asinine, and/or nonsensical. Meet this failed political candidate from Oregon. He must’ve been in contact with Jussie Smollett on this one. From Metro Voice News: In yet another example of a faked hate crime, an Oregon politician has admitted he fabricated the entire thing. Oregon Democrat Jonathan Lopez confessed to penning a racist letter to himself after he initially claimed it was anonymously sent to him, authorities said. Lopez, who is Latino and was a recent Democrat candidate for commissioner in Umatilla County, had originally claimed he found the hate-screed in his mailbox on June 23, the East Oregonian reported. CONTINUED: News outlets and immigrant groups immediately pinned the incident on anti-immigrant sentiment allegedly stirred up by President Donald Trump’s southern border wall. It is one of hundreds of similar incidents blamed on conservatives that later were found to be fabricated, but not before significant national media attention. Jason Edmiston, chief of police in Hermiston, said: “Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media.” What are the odds this story makes headlines tonight? Imagine if he was Republican, though! Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
