Some great police work by Gainesville, Florida PD has caught national attention with the help of a basketball legend.  Shaquille O'Neal joined officer Bobby White and some neighborhood kids for a game of basketball, but he also taught them some important life lessons. 

White had originally been called for a noise complaint and to tell the kids to stop playing, but he's being credited for letting the kids be kids and have some fun.
