Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports
The Los Angeles Lakers have announced they will be unveiling a statue of Shaquille O'Neal outside the Staples Center during the 2016-17 season. Per Lakers president and co-owner Jeanie Buss...

We look forward to having Shaq join the other legends who have been honored with statues at STAPLES Center. He is a giant not only in size, but also in stature and in what he accomplished as a Laker. Shaq literally broke the ground for the site, and was hugely responsible for not only getting STAPLES Center built, but for making it one of the most successful and famous arenas in the world. It's an honor that is well deserved.
He actually found out the news during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!...

Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry West and broadcaster Chick Hearn are the only other Lakers legends with statutes. Congrats, Big Daddy.
