done heaven give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our day and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glow whoa ever ah me [Applause] let's give him another round of applause [Applause] next we will have brother Steven Naismith before I bring brother Steven a on when I told him he was giving Shaq the Lifetime Achievement Award he said Q I'm there give me the day so I told him the day and he had to actually cover the Alabama Oklahoma game but he cancelled and took vacation for a whole week to be here to speak for his brother Shaquille O'Neal so please give him a round of applause as he come to the roster brother Steven Naismith good evening brothers you know when Mark called me brother Mark Stevens and asked me to speak about Shaquille O'Neal I said would you want me to say you know he said not me you got to tell y'all story story about Brotherhood y'all have one another and I said there's one slight problem most of it ain't suitable for audiences you know I mean the stuff that Shaq jokes about and the stuff that this man does to make fun of people they just think you just can't repeat they suitable for FCC airwaves dama de is suited for here but I'll tell you a couple of things it's just you watch him on national television and you you know it's two moments for me that have very little to do with Shaquille O'Neal and I directly but it really is implementing and epitomizes the kind of laughter that we have will one another he'll start laughing a minute I bring up two of these things one is footage from Shaq in the fool 2015 Otto Porter it's one of the funniest things you will ever see on TV in your life watching basketball because this brother Otto Porter works for the Washington Wizards and he's on the court literally during the game and he's on the left wing defending an opposing player and literally the player runs by him runs all the way to the other side of the court and Otto Porter is still just standing there frozen had no idea that the guy left and if you watch Shaq and Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson even Ernie Johnson class personified was cracking up laughing and Kenny Smith was like you you got to show that again you got to show that again and that was just one thing the other thing and I'm thinking about whether I should tell this or not I mean I'm actually having second thoughts or revealing this story but if y'all know anything about Charles Barkley there's this running joke about him and San Antonio's women and he talks about them constantly you know one of the lines he uses that Victoria is a secret and if you ever want to see Shaq break out laughing ways able to fall off his chairs usually during those moments you know and people crack up about it all the time and they talk about the laughter that he brings and to me it's the guy that I've known throughout these years it's real interesting as we sit here tonight about to honor this man what he means to this fraternity this Brotherhood what he means to our community what he means the world over in the world of sports but I'm here to tell you that as an eyewitness to a lot of it it really really does him no justice you know when I became a member of Omega sapphire 2012 even though it is a fraternity the fraternity as far as I'm concerned I've never considered this a fraternity I have always considered this a brotherhood and it resonates deeply with me because I lost the only brother that I had in a car accident in 1992 and often told that story whenever I'm speaking on behalf of this fraternity this Brotherhood because it's the motivation that drove me to this place one of the greatest greatest things that have ever happened to me in my adult life is meeting my brother Mark Stevens one of the best brothers I've ever known because of Mark Stevens I met another brother of mine brother Evan Murray because of the combination of those two I've met all the brothers in here including Ricky as good as a brother as I know and the list goes on and on none of that would have been possible had it not been for Shaquille O'Neal because I don't know if you notice about me Myra I guess my reputation precedes me I don't play games I know how to laugh I know how to have a good time but I don't give a damn about what anybody else thinks about what anybody else says when it comes to my principles and brotherhood is that is near the top of that list finding people whose hearts are in the right place who are as authentic as they come who are as real as they come charitable and philanthropic whose soul is in the right place that never go about the business of hurting anybody before they help others and if there's anybody if there is a professional athlete that has epitomized that more so than Shaquille O'Neal I want to meet them because I'm here to tell you in my 25 years in this business I haven't met a better brother I haven't met a better friend I haven't been having that a better ambassador than this man right here you might see him and you might see the Jolly John on television having a good time or whatever when he was playing he wasn't that nice as Vlade Divac and a whole bunch of other victims Patrick you and David Robinson he didn't get Hakeem Olajuwon now but we'll get into that another day ask a whole bunch of guys there were a whole bunch of victims that lied and his weight but that was purely on the basketball court they don't know or even if they do know people haven't cared to articulate enough whether it's Shaq of clothes whether it's the homes that he built and the food that he gave out and the supplies after Hurricane Katrina whether it's again Shaq of clothing member Shaquille O'Neal departs from Los Angeles Kobe Bryant is still there you got a lot of people in that area and that's something that I've never really spoken about publicly that did not like the fact that Shaquille O'Neal was gone you had a whole bunch of people that wanted to do some harm to some people in LA including the great Kobe Bryant and then all of a sudden somebody picked up the phone and said to them nah that's not how we gonna do this I'm a man as business you lead that brother loan there's a reason that Shaq and Kobe are still friends to this day there's a reason that they get along big fellow here's got something to do with that there's a reason you see individuals in the world of sports becoming more business minded elevating their business acumen being philanthropic and giving back to their communities more importantly they publicize their deeds a hell of a lot more than he ever has because the objective in mind has been controlling the narratives and making sure that they get shine and get pavan it's not that they don't deserve it but there's something to be said about your heart where we got a search every crevice of every corner just to find out the things that you do because you didn't want anybody to know because your heart was in the right place that is the brother Shaquille O'Neal that I have known all of these years so I want you to recognize that tonight when he stands up here as the recipient of this Lifetime Achievement Award by Omega Sapphire I want you to understand that you're giving it to an incredibly worthy individual an individual that has been very charitable very giving very loving that has represented his community his people the basketball community his own family and friends with the steam and honor and love and loyalty I want you to know that as a journalism I am NOT somebody that was sit up here and tell you that somebody has epitomized those attributes unless I absolutely mean it and if you doubt that I'm telling the truth look at my face and ask yourself that question again I don't take time out of my schedule to honor folks that don't deserve to be on it and if I'm fortunate and blessed enough to deserve such an honor someday myself I can assure you it will never be to the degree that this man is worthy of this honor tonight it is my honor and privilege to be here for my friend and brother who has represented so many great things not just about the game of basketball but the game of life and what Brotherhood is supposed to be all about and they're supposed to epitomize Shaq is very very fond of looking at the people he loves and no matter what he says to them in a conversation always ending it by telling them love you bro well guess what I love you too big boy congratulations [Applause] next we will have I call it my big brother from Los Angeles he is the newly elected first vice grand bossless of a mega sci-fi fraternity incorporated my big brother brother Ricky Lewis good evening everyone I was good to be here from Los Angeles brother Stevens thank you brother Mark Stevens told me how five or ten minutes I told my well be decent and in order and I will not go over the five or ten minutes as we reflect on the greatness of a mega sci-fi fraternity you never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit to achieve greatness once you live as if they would never die people don't wake up one morning decide it wouldn't be extraordinary it's a desire a burning desire that goes beyond the basics of just living to be greatness well make us a 5-footer nity November 17

potential encouraging him to dream and to achieve his dream greatness has been available for a father who's struggling to find out how to be a father helping a young mother who's single trying to

stretched him out seven feet at home God had it in plans for him to be not just 7 1 and 300 some odd pounds but he also made it possible for him there not to be big and clumsy I know some big tall

all the brothers of Omega sapphire and the community assembled here to honor this brother who has done amazing things not only on the basketball court but more importantly as brother Steven Naismith said off the basketball court as we fight for the equal justice and the equal opportunities and just the young people of color in America to be able to have Liberty in many instances it is so important when we go in the courtroom that we have images role models that people on the jury can relate to and that's why it's so important that things that Shaquille O'Neal represents in America it is so critical when we think of the n-double a-c-p Image Awards the images are a subconscious things we see on TV Malcolm X said the most powerful drug ever created was the television Stephen a Malcolm said TV gets inside your subconscious and you don't even realize you're thinking of thing and you're thinking it and so that's why I'm so important that you have people like Shaquille O'Neal representing so well on television doing things in the community making contributions back not only making himself look good not only making Omega look good brother Marion but making all of us look good he lives his Creed he really lives his and that's what it is about brother Stephens and so when we go in these courtrooms and we go all over the country brother Lewis and we talk about we have to stand up for our children we have to speak up for our children we have to fight for our children because they're our children and if we don't fight for them we can't expect anybody else to fight for them and that's why I'm so honored to be a brother of Omega Syfy and a grand officer instead of Luke you should kill O'Neil for standing up for our children and as my grandmother said standing up for the least of these salute god bless so now we have a presentation to make before I make the presentation I have on my committee thanks to brother Graham Bastas and brother first vice my committee net
