More than ever, athletes have a renewed focus on the image they portray to the public. With the help of professional stylists, or girlfriends, athletes have cleaned up their looks and traded in baggy jeans for tailored duds and man purses. Shaquille O’Neal is no different.
Recently Esquire Magazine visited Shaq Diesel and his girlfriend, Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, at his Orlando home. They discussed Shaq’s new job as one of the latest spokesmen for Dove Men +Care “Journey to Comfort” campaign. Shaq also shared how he transformed his look from b-boy to towering businessman. With many successful business ventures and a Ph.D. in the works, Shaq understands the importance of looking polished. The keys to his success include investing in a good tailor, embracing dark colors, and hiring people smarter than you. The 40-year-old, 7-foot-1, 300-pound NBA analyst also trusts and respects his 5’2″ girlfriend, Alexander, to help him complete his look.
Go here to check out the video and get a peak into his 3-story closet.
Also, here’s one of three videos Shaq shot for the Dove Men + Care campaign. This year, the Dove Men+ Care campaign also includes Steve Nash and Tom Izzo, head coach of the No. 1 seed, Michigan State Spartans.
P.S. I hate when sites don’t allow you to embed videos elsewhere. It’s not only selfish, but it goes against everything that makes the internet and social media the greatest thing since sliced bread. What’s the point in posting something if you don’t want people to have the ability to share easily? Nonsense.
