Shaq scores with surprise visit to Locust Valley school
Students at a Locust Valley prep school were paid a surprise visit today by basketball star Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq came to the Portledge School, where he spoke at an assembly and offered advice to those in attendance. "It's a very simple blueprint," O'Neal said. "Listen to your parents, listen to your teachers. Be a leader, not a follower. Stay out of trouble."
He also had lunch at Abeetza Pizza in Greenvale. Shaq retired earlier this year after entering the league as a rookie in 1992. He played for six teams ? the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics.To watch an interview with Shaquille O'Neal on his visit to the Portledge School, click on iO Extra on Channel 612.
