The last time Shaq received publicity for being in Harvard Square, it was for a rather stoic reason.However, this Saturday, recently-retired NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal will have another appearance in the Square, this time at the Harvard Book Store, signing copies of his newly released autobiography, "Shaq Uncut: My Story."

Though it may appear to be unfortunate timing for many Harvard students, as they will either be subjecting themselves to New Haven for the sake of watching The Game, or attending the Celtics' Rajon Rondo’s exhibition, the seven-footer will be signing his massive autograph at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.

For a guy who has had countless nicknames such as "The Big Leprechaun" while playing for the Celtics and "The Big Cactus" while missing free-throws for the Suns, Shaq will surely try to add one more to his resume this weekend: The Big Author.

He clearly didn't get the memo that basketball players are not supposed to be working right now.
