'Mad Dog' Madsen's Wardrobe Gets Shaq Attack

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- If you're in the NBA, you have to dress like you're in the NBA. At least that's what NBA star Shaquille O'Neal tried to teach LDS Church member Mark "Mad Dog" Madsen, Shaq's rookie teammate on the Los Angeles Lakers. Madsen recently became the latest recipient of Shaq's famous generosity. And in the process, his wardrobe got a major upgrade.

The same day Shaq signed an $88.5 million contract extension, he called Madsen and asked him to take a ride. "Shaq basically took a look at my wardrobe and said: 'Mark, you've got some nice things. But you're in the league now. It's time for an upgrade,' " Madsen said.

The pair hit Rodeo Drive, first stopping at Rochester Big and Tall in Beverly Hills. Madsen selected a couple of items, only to discover that Shaq had added about 20 more at the counter. When Madsen protested at the expense, Shaq said, "Madsen, Madsen. Relax. I'm insisting. You're a rookie in the league. I'm going to take you out this time and then you're on your own." Madsen says Shaq spent $2,500 on him, and then the pair made a stop on the way home at a Rolex store.
