Shaquille O’Neal and Bill Gates, 1995
Bill Gates and Shaquille O’Neal are two of the most influential figures of the country, although they come from different professional worlds. Businessman and software developer Bill Gates is most widely known as the co-founder of Microsoft, and professional basketball player Shaquille O’Neal is known as one of the best NBA players in history.
The random meeting between the two idols took place in 1995, in California; Gates was speaking at a Microsoft convention, while O’Neal was at the same event, speaking about his Shaq World online sports service. At the time, he was a center for the Orlando Magic. For some reason, the 7.1 ft basketball star decided to lift up business magnate.
