In the 1994 film Blue ChipsShaquille O’Neal plays a hulking high-school hoopster who’s recruitment is decided by the lavish gifts he receives from collegiate boosters. And more than twenty years later, the future Hall of Famer has finally confirmed rampant speculation by admitting the blurred lines between fiction and reality.

O’Neal, who played three seasons at Louisiana State University before declaring for the NBA draft in 1992, told the assembled crowd at an all-access Los Angeles Lakers event that he was paid to suit up for the Tigers – and wouldn’t mind his teenage son accepting similar bribes to play at his alma mater.
