Shaquille O’Neal or Shaq, is not only a former NBA icon but is a pro at winning hearts off the court as well. In this video shared on Instagram, viewers can see how a little boy’s day was made when he came across Shaq at a store where he had come to get a new coat.

The caption to the video is quite detailed and it explains how the little boy was being cranky until a tall man walked up to him and asked him what was wrong. It further reads, “I couldn’t believe my eyes as I was crying. I told him I got in trouble from my dad for not listening while in the store. Shaq said “go give your dad a hug and tell him you’re sorry.” I did just that as he lectured me about listening to my parents and followed with a question asking me why I didn't get shoes today. My parents just came to get me a coat. Shaquille O’Neal then said let’s go pick out some shoes. He blessed me with two pairs of shoes, my coat and my dad some socks.”

The tiny fan was left gushing and further added, “He even watched my basketball videos and told me I was a beast point guard.” The video is extremely sweet to watch and shows how the little boy reacted. It also showcases how adorably Shaq accompanied him to get him the shoes and coat that he very much deserved.
