‘Shaq’ Preview


Shaq | Official Trailer | HBOOn the court he was huge. Off the court he is larger than life. #ShaqHBO, a four-part HBO documentary series about the life, career, and legacy of Shaquille O'Neal, premieres November 23 on HBO Max. ABOUT HBO HBO is home to the shows and films that everyone is talking about, from groundbreaking series and documentaries…2022-11-14T16:33:57Z

“Shaq” is a new four-part documentary series “detailing the life and career of NBA Hall of Famer and multi-hyphenate Shaquille O’Neal,” according to the HBO press release.

It continues:

Featuring a series of revealing interviews with O’Neal, “Shaq” tells the story of a basketball legend unlike any other, whose larger-than-life personality transcended the sport and transformed him into a cultural icon. The documentary series chronicles Shaq’s ascent to superstardom, as a dominant force who won four NBA championships, league MVP honors, and changed the game. It also encompasses his life off the court, from his upbringing in a military family to his deepest personal relationships and prosperous broadcasting and business careers.

The series features new interviews with some of the most revered names in basketball including O’Neal’s teammates Penny Hardaway, Dwyane Wade, Dennis Scott, Brian Shaw, Derek Fisher and Rick Fox; his head coaches Phil Jackson and Pat Riley; and former Los Angeles Lakers General Manager Jerry West. In addition, the series includes interviews with several members of O’Neal’s family, including his mother, Dr. Lucille O’Neal, siblings Jamal and Lateefah Harrison, and three of his children — Taahirah, Shareef, and Myles.

“We kept this documentary real from the start, and I do feel like it is the most honest look into my life and career up until this point,” said O’Neal in a statement. “This process allowed me to reflect publicly in a way I haven’t before, and I’m so proud of the work everyone has done to put it all together.”

In an interview with People, O’Neal talked about heading down the “wrong path” when he was a young man.

“Every time I went to a place, I made my name quickly. I’d find out who ‘the guy’ was, study him, and I’d beat him up. Take his spot. Everybody knew who I was,” said O’Neal, adding, “I almost killed a kid [in a fight] … I shifted everything into becoming the class clown. Just to make people like me. It was [another] mechanism for [dealing with my insecurity]. I wasn’t a leader yet. I was a follower on the wrong path.”

The premiere episode is titled “From Shaquille to Shaq,” and its description reads, “The origin of Shaquille O’Neal’s legend- from a military household to NBA stardom.”

Then on November 30 comes episode two, titled “The Rise.” Its description reads, “The forming of a new dynasty in Los Angeles as Shaq reaches the apex of his career.”

On Wednesday, December 7 premieres episode three, titled “The Fall.” Its description reads, “Shaq and the Lakers’ continued dominance leads to a ‘three-peat’ but soon after comes to a crashing halt.”

And finally, the fourth episode, titled “From Shaq to Shaquille,” premieres on December 14. Its description reads, “A champion once again in Miami before age and injuries lead Shaq to the next phase of his life.”

“Shaq” premieres Wednesday, November 23 at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on HBO.
