He’s already got a statue at Staples Center — now Shaquille O’Neal has a restaurant right across the street!!!
The NBA legend opened up Shaquille’s at L.A. Live over the weekend — and tons of his famous friends showed up to celebrate … from Adam Sandler to Julian Edelman and Tiffany Haddish!!!
It all went down after the Lakers game on Saturday night after Los Angeles took an L against their rival, Boston Celtics … which happens to the last team Shaq played for!!!
The restaurant specializes in Southern cuisine — featuring everything from Shaq’s famous fried chicken to shrimp & grits. People at the party tell us the food was delicious.
And, get this … we’re told a few of the Lakers even hit up the joint after the game … including Kyle Kuzma and Rajon Rondo.
Boston’s Jayson Tatum was there too along with Celtics legend Paul Pierce.
Other stars spotted at the party … Diplo, E.J. Johnson, Jaleel White and Ross Butler.
