Every day, I’m so grateful to have grown up in the same family as my Uncle Mike. His unconditional support, his rigid moral code, and his love for people influenced me in more ways than I could possible say in an Instagram post. I’d encourage everyone out there to find your Uncle Mike. Ask for help or advice from your parents, or a teacher, or a friend when you’re facing adversity. And remember, if you work hard and believe in yourself, you can dominate at whatever it is you want to do in life. Alright, thanks for following along, and be sure to check out the full story of me and my Uncle on the @PlayersTribune. Peace! —@Shaq

Accountability and consequences were two very important themes that my Uncle Mike stressed to me growing up. When I got a little older, he became a police officer, and would drive me around in his squad car to show me what life would look like if I got into trouble and chose the wrong path. These car rides made me realize that what we do shapes our habits, and those habits eventually become our character. He’d always tell me that if I became a leader and lived a life of hard, honest work and determination, I could be or do anything that I wanted. #MyBrothersKeeper #TPTAssist —@Shaq

When I was a little kid (or maybe just a kid, ’cause I was never little), my Uncle Mike worked at a sporting goods store in Newark. I spent a lot of my time there, stocking shelves and doing anything I could to earn enough money to buy my prized Dr. J sneakers. Uncle Mike and I both knew he could have just pulled them out of the stock room and handed them to me, but he wasn’t about that. He made me earn every penny. Take it from the Big Fellah, if you want to succeed at what you do, you gotta work hard. Like my Uncle always says, the best things in life are earned.

Oh hey, guys. It’s @Shaq. I’m taking over the White House Instagram today to talk about something close to my heart – the importance of mentorship. Nobody makes it on their own. Everybody needs someone to have their back. For me, that mentor is my Uncle Mike Parris. He is, without a doubt, the reason I have become the man I am today. Follow along and I’ll tell you more about how he helped me succeed. #MyBrothersKeeper #TPTAssist
