EXCERPT:

Notice a large statue in The Pit of Harvard Square today? He was pretty difficult to miss—Shaquille O’Neal, the new Celtic and publicity stunt king of Boston, sat there as a living statue for about an hour this afternoon. The big man had announced his plan two weeks ago, promising to post the details of his arrival on Twitter. Then today around 1:15 p.m. the “Shaq Vs” star and now highest profile NBA benchwarmer posted that he was on his way:

THE_REAL_SHAQ: On my way to Barbara square it’s statue time

THE_REAL_SHAQ: I mean on my way to harvard square lol dam I phone my fingers r to big statue time

O’Neal’s whereabouts were given away shortly before 2 p.m. by the arrival of a red van with a small Shaq logo on the back outside of Au Bon Pain. Soon enough, the 7 foot 1 inch giant emerged, sporting a black hoodie, for a quick stop at ABP and then the completion of his “statue time” mission.
