Former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal is a doctor now.
O'Neal received his doctoral degree in education from Barry University alongside 1,100 other students during commencement ceremonies Saturday.

The Cavs are 0-2 to start the season and their defense seems lousy. I wonder if they are adjusting to having Shaq, or if he's just a bad fit for the team because he's so slow. The lowlights of watching the Cavs defend the pick and roll were rough. They are just too slow in...
