Shaq Pays Off Man’s Engagement Ring Debt Shaq just proved what a kind person he is. The ex-baller saw a man trying to set up a payment plan for his engagement ring debt, and decided to pay for it. The incident, which was caught on video, happened in Zales when Shaq went in to get some earrings. He told the man, “You know what? Tell your girlfriend I got her. I’ll take care of it.” Shaq later said, “Whenever I leave the house, I just try to do a good deed.” What is the nicest thing you’ve ever done for a stranger?
