*Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
Shaquille O’Neal was in a Zales jewelry store on Tuesday (he has a jewelry line with the company) when he overheard a man asking how much it would cost to pay off the ring he had reserved. Next thing the man knew, the ring was fully paid for by the 7 foot 3, three-time NBA champion.
In a video posted to Instagram, Shaq is shown passing the cashier his credit card to take care of the balance, and shaking hands with the man making the purchase.

Shaq was grilled about this by his co-hosts on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” Postgame Show.
“He was saying hey, how much do I owe to pay off my ring? And I was like, ‘My man, how much is the ring?’ And I’m not gonna say the amount…but this is something that I do every day,” Shaq said, adding that the man initially refused to accept his payment.
“I’m into making people happy so whenever I leave the house I just try and do a good thing,” he continued. “I’m just trying to make people smile, that’s all.”
