Shaquille O’Neal To Be Honored With Bronze Statue Outside Staples Center

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A bronze statue of Basketball Hall of Fame center Shaquille O’Neal will be unveiled March 24 outside Staples Center, the Lakers said Wednesday.

The nine-foot-tall, 1,200-pound statue will be suspended 10 feet above the ground in Star Plaza and connected to Staples Center, according to Michael Roth of AEG, the sports and music entertainment firm that owns the arena.

The statue was created by the same artists —  Julie Rotblatt Amrany and Omri Amrany — who also created the statues of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Chick Hearn, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Luc Robitaille and Jerry West in Star Plaza.

The statue will be the eighth in Star Plaza. The others honor International Boxing Hall of Fame member Oscar De La Hoya and NHL all-time leading scorer Wayne Gretzky.
