  • “”After being plucked from a freight train via helicopter, Bear and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal battle dense forest, blood-sucking leeches, and 200 ft. sheer rock faces in the remote Adirondacks in search of their extraction point. Along the way, O’Neal’s infectious energy, tales of legendary NBA moments, and unwavering drive to help others reminds us why he is beloved around the world. The Wild will dole out everything it’s got, but it’s never met a force of nature like Shaquille O’Neal.””
