Shaquille O’Neal has proven again and again to be a “gentle giant”.

This week, the former NBA star and current TNT analyst purchased new furniture for the family of a 5 year old girl, who survived a vicious dog attack that left a school mate dead in Atlanta.  After spending nearly two months in the hospital recovering from very serious injuries, Syrai Sanders is now home.  O’Neal, who has kept in close contact with the family since he heard about the attack, decided to meet with the family at the furniture store and picked up the tab.

What a wonderful gesture for a little girl and her family that have been through so much.
