O’Neal’s aggressive tendencies were already evident in his youth. The O’Neal family often changed their place of residence and “Shaq” first looked for the reigning top dog in his new hometown, beat him up and took his position. “I almost killed someone,” O’Neal recalls of a fight in the schoolyard. He was then shown the local prison and from then on he preferred to try his hand at being a class clown. Both were mechanisms to circumvent his insecurities.

The former NBA superstar also reports that it was only after having six children that he calmed down. “As soon as I saw my children’s faces, I could transform,” says O’Neal.
