From Monday’s New York Times Correction Central:
A picture caption on Thursday with an article about the Shaq Summit, a daylong seminar about Shaquille O’Neal’s business ventures, misidentified the woman shown watching a presentation with O’Neal. She is Laticia Rolle, his current girlfriend — not Nicole Alexander, a former girlfriend. And the article described incorrectly one of the products he endorses. It is a medicated powder, not a medicated power.
The piece in question:
Looming Even Larger Off the Court
Shaquille O’Neal Has His Hands Full as a Pitchman
ATLANTA — Shaquille O’Neal arrived at Turner Studios on a recent weekday morning wearing a tailored suit, size 60XL, and carrying a leather briefcase. He sat at a table at the front of the room, cracked open his laptop and prepared for a daylong seminar on a subject that was uniquely familiar to him: Shaquille O’Neal.
The occasion was the third annual Shaq Summit, a gathering of representatives from O’Neal’s many business ventures — a group that included the president of Zales (O’Neal has a men’s jewelry line) and executives from Arizona Beverages (O’Neal has a new fruit punch). One by one, they presented their campaigns and their products, and they detailed how O’Neal, the former N.B.A. star, figured into their plans.
“We’d like to see if we can create a little synergy under the Shaq umbrella,” O’Neal said.
So, to recap: That’s the back of Laticia Rolle’s head in the photo above, not Nicole Alexander’s. We have no idea where her head is, but of course we hope it’s in a good place.
Meanwhile, we’re glad the whole Girlfriend of Shaq thing is officially sorted.
But, damn – Medicated Power would be a great breakout session at the next Shaq Summit, wouldn’t it?
