Shaq stops by Lenox Macy’s to promote menswear line 

By Rodney Ho

Former Lakers star and current Atlanta resident Shaquille O’Neal spent a couple of hours Saturday meeting and greeting fans to promote his new menswear line at the Lenox Square Mall.

The clothing is not just for big and tall folks like Shaq himself.  According to the press release, “Retailing from $150 for a pant to $400 for a jacket, Shaquille O’Neal will allow the 60XL guy to shop in the same store and look just as dapper as his size 40R friend.”

More than 150 people showed up to get an autographed picture and photo taken with him on their smartphones. Many people, moments after their meeting, jumped on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to show off their time with Shaq, however brief.
