Milwaukee Bucks Find Perfectly Good Shaq At Play It Again Sports

MILWAUKEE—While shopping for used equipment at a local Play It Again Sports franchise Tuesday, Bucks general manager John Hammond reportedly came across a mildly damaged Shaq in good working condition next to a bin filled with old tennis balls.
