Cavaliers Welcome Shaq's Mom to The Q!

CLEVELAND, OH - March 29, 2010 - The Cavaliers are pleased to welcome Lucille O’Neal, mother of four time NBA Champion, 15 time All Star and Cavs center, Shaquille O’Neal to Quicken Loans Arena to meet fans and sign her new book “Walk Like You Have Somewhere to Go: From Mental Welfare to Mental Wealth,” prior to the start of the Cavs vs. Milwaukee Bucks game on Wednesday, March 31st . Ms. O’Neal will appear on The Q’s concourse between 5:30-7:00 p.m.

WALK LIKE YOU HAVE SOMEWHERE TO GO speaks to women of all ages who have struggled to understand how she fits into the world. Lucille courageously tells the deeply personal, and at times heartbreaking, journey of the girl who experienced the pain of being an outcast and the stigma surrounding being an unwed teen mother. Yet, in due course, that same girl evolved into a woman of immeasurable substance, faith and spirit…and with no regrets. Says Lucille, also lovingly referred to as Big Lou: “These days, when I go to bed at night, I sleep on the sheets of satisfaction, the pillows of peace, and the cushions of confidence…I am rich in so many ways that have nothing to do with money, which only serves to explain the happiness I have regarding my mental wealth today.”

Copies of the book will be on sale in the Cavaliers Team Shop.
