What did Shaq weigh when he was born?

When he was born in Newark, New Jersey, on March 6, 1972, Shaquille O’Neal weighed 7 pounds and 13 ounces. Shaq was one of the most intimidating NBA basketball players because he was over 7 feet tall.

In junior high, O’Neal started to grow quickly, so his parents suggested he try playing sports. He was 6.5 feet tall in the ninth grade. He was 6 feet 10 inches tall in high school and wore shoes that were a size 17 that were too small. At the height of his basketball career, when O’Neal stopped growing, he was 7 feet 1 inch tall and weighed 325 pounds.
