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 Miami Herald reports that O'Neal got on one knee so the chair of Barry's organizational learning and leadership program could drape a light blue hood around O'Neal's more-than-7-foot frame.

I did not know he was in school for that many years in order to earn a Doctorate's , but good for him if he did. Sometimes I believe Universities hand out degrees without the famous working that hard at all.
Good PR and college enrollment when someone famous earns a degree at their University.
Heard about this on his TNT show. Good for him. He is giving himself options and I have to commend Shaq for that.
