Shaquille O’Neal is known for buying complete strangers stuff, like a bike at Walmart for a kid, a van for a family, and engagement ring for a young couple… and he’s at it again! 

Shaq just bought a house in Dallas, and was browsing at a nearby Best Buy store over the weekend when he met a young family looking for a washing machine. After talking with them, he paid for the washer for them — as well as a 70-inch TV just for fun.

He told Page Six, “I just want to make people happy.”

Get this: He recently picked up the dinner tab, about 40 tables, for everyone in the restaurant in NYC. He even asked the staff not to mention his name.
