    A Florida cop's heartwarming response to a noise complaint about kids playing basketball proved to be a slam dunk with someone who knows a thing or two about the game.

    NBA all-star Shaquille O'Neal was among more than 14 million people who viewed video of Gainesville Police Officer Bobby White responding to a call about kids playing "loudly" in the street by joining the group in a game of hoops instead of shutting them down, NBC News reported.

    The 4-time champ made a surprise stop at the Gainesville Police Department on Saturday to praise White and help the officer make good on a promise to "bring backup" for another pickup game with the kids.
