A man shopping for an engagement ring at a jewelry store gets a nice surprise when Shaquille O'Neal generously pays for it. (0:29)

Shaquille O'Neal, NBA legend, four-time NBA champion, and roving do-gooder is under-reporting good deeds.

The former Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat star said in a November, 2020, episode of "Million Dollaz Worth of Game" podcast that he goes into stores looking to help mothers who might need it. On one occasion, O'Neal says he purchased a computer for a mother who couldn't afford school laptops for her kids.

"I got you," Shaq says he told the mother.

"My motto lately is it could be worse, and that could be you," O'Neal said.

This is just another act of generosity from O'Neal. In April, he saw a man shopping for an engagement ring and paid for the ring. Following the death of former teammate Kobe Bryant, O'Neal paid for an Atlanta man's computer purchase after the man offered O'Neal condolences for Bryant's death.

"$1,500 ain't nothing to me but -- mom trying to help her babies go to school. ... do it," O'Neal said.
