While the NBA is taking over New Orleans for All-Star Weekend, Reebok Classics will serve up this timely college-inspired colorway of Shaquille O'Neal's Shaq Attaq.
Before rocking rims in Orlando, Shaq spent three years playing under mentor Dale Brown at Louisiana State University. There, he was a two-time All-American, two-time SEC player of the year and received the Adolph Rupp Trophy as NCAA men's basketball player of the year in 1991. After it became clear that he was ready to dominate in the NBA, he left school early to enter the 1992 NBA Draft and the rest is history.
Celebrating Shaq's collegiate career, this Shaq Attaq is decked out in purple and gold, LSU's team colors. The tiger is marked with stripes along the collar and inner lining.
The 'LSU' Shaq Attaq will release Friday, February 14 at Finish Line, Foot Locker, Champs, Eastbay, Jimmy Jazz, DTLR and reebok.com for $159.99.
