Shaquille O’Neal: ‘I Really Would Like to Thank Julius Erving and Magic Johnson for Inspiring Me’

‘You have to work and continue to work’

EXCERPT:

O’NEAL: “Yeah. You just have to — listen, it’s not going to come tomorrow, it’s not going to come today after tomorrow. You have to work. You have to continue to work. I really would like to thank Julius Erving and Magic Johnson for inspiring me. Because a lot of times when I thought I wasn’t good and I wasn’t going to make it, I just used to watch them and say to myself, I want to be like Doctor J. I want to be like Magic Johnson. I want to be like David Robson. So I like to thank those brothers for inspiring me to be who I am today. Thank you very much. Love you, fellas.”
