Shaquille O'Neal: finds a way to make me feel bad for hating him. Dammit, Mister run-over-everyone, why do you have to have a heart?

He's got his faults, but he always seemed like a nice guy.

It's nice to see athletes let go of their egos and lend a generous helping hand. Thanks Shaq.

That's awesome. Glad to see athletes lending a hand where they can.

Shaq is a class act. People get him confused with a'holes like Kobe. But Mr. O'Neal has always been a different breed. Even when he played for (the most hated at least by me) Lakers I had to like him…just had to.

His heart has to be as big as he is. Good for you Shaq.

For someone as high profile as he is (one of the highest profile atheletes in America at least) and someone with a connection to the effected areas to boot it is certainly good to see that he's taken advantage of his ability to do more than the typical citizen.

Shaq is going to be the man for such a long time. Following his HoF career, he'll go the sheriff route for a little while - then when he's tired of people being excited to be arrested by him get into local politics, win a few elections - move up to the governor's mansion and eventually be Senator Shaq automatic incumbent. He will serve with grace and wit for decades and die sometime in 2055. He will be buried in Arlington National Cemetary and his funeral will be attended by the pantheon of current and future NBA greats (an aged - and 4 time champion - Dwayne Wade will read one of several eulogys), federal leaders and the President. Seriously, how could you not love Shaq?

I'm actually starting to like O'Neal - check this out: Shaq assists police in arresting man accused of assaulting gay couple ``For this incident I don't want to be credited as an individual who does police work,'' O'Neal said in a statement. ``I want to be credited as a Miami Beach police officer.''
