Shaquille O'Neal towers over tiny fans at basketball clinic

April 1, 2012 - London

Shaquille O'Neal, who delighted several children at a basketball clinic in Orlando, Florida on Friday, towered over everyone at the event.

During the gathering, sponsored by Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature Card from Chase, the 40-year-old former professional basketball player greeted some of Marriott's premier card members and their children.

O'Neal, who is affectionately known as Shaq, then gave everyone lessons on the game, and joined the grownups for a cocktail reception, the Daily Mail reported.

The four-time NBA champion retired from the game last year after 19 seasons.

During his time in the NBA, O'Neal played for the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics.

Shaq ended his career as the league's fifth all-time scorer with 28,596 points.
