Dr. Shaquille O’Neal: ‘I’m done with the nicknames’

Hold off on the nickname search for Dr. O’Neal.

In an interview with the New York Times [1], new Celtic Shaquille O’Neal said that he is working on his doctorate at Barry University and once that degree is obtained he no longer wants to be called “Shaq” and that he is no longer in the business of crafting nicknames for himself.

“I’€™m done with the nicknames,” O’Neal said. “Actually, when I obtain my doctorate, I will not allow people to call me Shaq anymore, either.”
