Shaquille O’Neal buys laptop for fan who offered condolences for deaths of sister, Kobe Bryant
Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal bought a fan, Patrick Martin, a laptop after Martin offered his sympathies to Shaq for the recent deaths of Kobe Bryant and O’Neal’s sister, Ayesha Harrison-Jex, who died in October after a battle with cancer.
So me and Mo just went to Best Buy to buy a laptop and we meet Shaq. We gave our condolences for his sister and Kobe. We…
O’Neal and Bryant won three titles together with the Lakers. They are one of the best duos in NBA history.
Shaq had an emotional speech on TNT while discussing Bryant’s death. The big fella has been through a lot lately with his sister and Bryant passing away. With that said, it was nice of the said fan to approach Shaq and offer his condolences.
Clearly, the Lakers icon appreciated the gesture.
It’s going to take time for Shaq to fully get over the deaths of Bryant and his sister. Of course, everyone needs to keep Vanessa Bryant and Kobe’s surviving daughters in their prayers since it’s impossible to understand what they are going through, but those close to Kobe like Shaq are suffering as well and need all the support they can get.
Fans are happy that O’Neal and Bryant were able to bury the hatchet and become brothers again after their run with the Lakers ended on a bitter note. People everywhere will always remember how dominant and lethal Shaq and Kobe were during their three-peat days.
