“Shaq Uncut’’ chronicles O’Neal’s rise from New Jersey rags to sports-and-entertainment riches. The colorful NBA superstar, who retired this year after a 19-year run, details his birth to a teen mother, estrangement from his biological father and respect for his drill-sergeant stepfather, his Newark, N.J., childhood, and becoming a basketball player in high school. And the rest, as they say, is history.
