Exclusive video: Shaqtue in the Square
ESPN was granted exclusive access Thursday as Shaquille O’Neal invaded Harvard Square and posed like a statue for hundreds of fans.
So how did he come up with the idea?
“The idea of the Shaq statue originated from watching TV one day,” Shaq told ESPN. “I was watching the royal British guards. If you know anything about those guys they have tremendous discipline. The other idea is I always wanted to tell people I went to Harvard.”
