(WGCL) -- A man attempting to make a payment on an engagement ring at a Georgia jewelry store got the surprise of a lifetime when NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal stepped in to help.
A viral video posted to social media shows Shaq taking out his credit card and handing it to the store clerk at a Zales in McDonough, an Atlanta suburb, to pay off the man's engagement ring debt.
Shaq talked about the good deed during the NBA aftershow on TNT Tuesday night.
"He was a young kid, a hardworking guy," said Shaq of the man attempting to plan out some type of layaway or payment plan for the ring.
This is nothing new for the NBA legend, as he has a long history of helping strangers.
"I'm into making people happy," said Shaq. "So, whenever I leave the house I just try to do a good deed."
Shaq said he never intended for the story to necessarily get out, as he does not do this for any type of publicity, and that he just tries "to make people smile."
