A small group of about 50 students, employees, and other community members were crowded into a small section of bleachers usually reserved for fans of visiting teams in the Bridgehampton School gym on Friday, August 10.

“The Today Show” was in town, and producers had transformed the north end of the tiny gym into a makeshift studio, with lights, cameras, and sound equipment, while ordering the assembly to remain hushed.

O’Neal, who stands seven feet, one-inch tall and whose playing weight has been listed at north of 330 pounds, is ordinarily hard to miss.

As he crossed the floor, O’Neal motioned to the crowd to make a little noise and they obliged him with a raucous cheer.
