Accessories brand Sprayground has dropped a new capsule collection today with NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal and the line includes what the bag-maker has dubbed the “largest backpack ever.”
The limited edition line includes three different styles created in collaboration between Shaq and Sprayground’s creative director and founder, David Ben-David. Both the Anime and 34 Dollar Bill designs, retailing for $75 each, see Shaq transformed into fantasy characters. Meanwhile, the larger-than-life Shaq Attack backpack draws attention based sheerly on size alone.

Speaking to FN about how the partnership came about, Ben-David explained that the duo met five years ago and have kept in touch since.
“We always wanted to design together but we never had the time until a year ago when we kept on bumping into each other and had a chance to sit down and create these three crazy concepts for these bags. His personality is so youthful and playful. It made it very easy to collaborate together. He is into music now and art and it makes it inspiring to see a man evolving from sports to movies to music,” said the founder.
