But now “Shaq Diesel” is taking his talent overseas, as he took a trip to Cuba to spread his love of basketball.
Now a diplomat, Shaq went to Havana to help run a basketball clinic for Cuban youth. The trip is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, and aids to improve America’s people-to-people relations with Cuban citizens.
Kids who came through to the camp got to do lay-up drills, and the 7-foot-1 giant even coached a few scrimmages.
“Baseball, soccer, basketball — it’s about sports, you know. We share a lot of things in common. We just want to come over here and extend our friendly hand and just start smoothing things out. It was great for (Obama) to reopen the door, regain a better relationship with this beautiful island,” Shaq said according to the NBA.
Shaq is scheduled to tour Cuba until Tuesday, June 28.
