Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal is a big athlete with an even bigger heart. His generosity is well known to those who keep up with sports news. The retired NBA star is extending his hand again to help those in need.

The four-time NBA Champion recently revealed he’s donating proceeds from his upcoming gig in Buffalo, NY, to the families of the 10 victims who died in a mass shooting there last month.

O’Neal told about his plans to SiriusXM’s Swaggy Sie that he will donate proceeds from his upcoming Bass All-Stars concert in Buffalo on June 24th to the affected families.

“My next show is in Buffalo. I’m going to donate my proceeds to some of the family members that had a tragic loss. If I see where there’s a need, I take care of it.”

This is not the first time the Basketball giant is in the news for his philanthropic efforts. Just a month ago, he covered funeral expenses for another family affected by gun violence. The NBA Hall of Famer is known for a lot of charity works, and it seems it will stay that way as long as he breathes.
