Former N-B-A superstar Shaquille O'Neal earned his P-H-D in education today (Saturday) from Barry University in Florida, wearing a size triple-X-L robe.
O'Neal took classes for the past 4-and-a-half years and finished with a three-point-8-1 grade point average.
O'Neal said his mother always encouraged him to continue his education.
He added that of all his accomplishments in life, getting his doctorate was at the top of the list.
O'Neal retired last year after playing 19 N-B-A seasons.
