NBA legend and DJ Shaquille O'Neal has announced that he will donate all of the proceeds from his upcoming Shaq’s Fun House/Super Bowl event to the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation and the families of the other victims who passed in a helicopter crash earlier in the week.

Shaq - who goes by the moniker DJ Diesel - won three consecutive championships with Bryant while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, and is deeply affected by the tragic loss of his “brother, friend and homie.”

Shaq opened up about the decision to continue with the event in the statement below:

Part of me wanted to stay to myself as I reflect what my brother and his family mean to me and my family. But in thinking what would Kobe want, what would he do? Kobe would want us to push through and celebrate life. So let’s just do that.

The upcoming Shaq’s Fun House show features the likes of Diddy, Diplo, Tiesto, Carnage and Pitbull to name a few. Check out Shaq's full announcement below.
