Last week a video of a police officer responding to a loud basketball game in the middle of the street went viral.

Instead of breaking up the game, the officer joins the kids in some street ball.

Shaq who has always had a connection with the men and women in uniform took a moment to visit the Gainesville Police Department and surprised the officer involved with some basketball skill. According to TMZ:

Shaq arrived at the Gainesville Police Department Saturday and headed out to the same spot Officer Bobby White responded to a call last week which ended in a game of pick-up ball with local kids. It’s pretty awesome, you can tell how pumped both the kids and the officers are to play with the big man.

Lucky for everyone involved, Shaq was more of a facilitator during the game, dishing out passes instead of dunks.



Here is the video of the officer and the original pick up game.
