It all started when a neighbor called 911.They complained that the neighborhood kids were playing basketball loudly in the street.
Officer Bobby White responded to the call in the early evening. Of course, since playing basketball in the street isn’t illegal, and 5:30 p.m. isn’t exactly late, Officer White found the call a bit ridiculous.
So he decided to join in!
Officer White’s department thought his decision was pretty cool, and so did a little someone else. (OK, abigsomeone else!)
The one and only Shaquille O’Neal stopped by the Gainesville Police Department to commend Officer White.
And no appearance from Shaq would be complete without a game of basketball!
Shaq, Officer White, and a few other cops returned to the original neighborhood to take the kids on head-to-head in a pickup game.
The kids’ reactions to the big guy showing up are adorable.
It just goes to show that a small gesture of kindness can go a long way.
