Shaquille O'Neal (b. 1972) is a basketball player and sports analyst who played for six teams over the course of his career, half of which was with the LA Lakers.
Outside of basketball, O'Neal released several hip hop albums, and appeared in Kazaam (loosely inspired by One Thousand and One Nights), Good Burger (with Sinbad), Scary Movie 4 (with Leslie Nielsen), Steel (based on the Superman comics), The Smurfs 2 (with Neil Patrick Harris), and The Lego Movie (with Elizabeth Banks).
- In the original 1993 printing of I Want to Be President, O'Neal is referenced on a copy of USA Today reporting on Betty Lou's inaugural celebration.
- When Davey Monkey dunks a basketball in Sesame Street Episode 3377, he's congratulated by Joey Monkey who notes that it was "just like Shaquille O'Neal".
