Shaq has never met a commercial that he didn't like.  He'd advertise a pile of dog sh*t if someone asked him to.

Shaq needs to shut up and needs to focus on completing his new Shaq-Fu game.

To be fair, Shaq hasn't been relevant in basketball in like 7 years. Do you blame him for wanting some exposure? The man's gotta eat and pay his bills.
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

Yeah, what would he do without that paycheck from The General?  Confused

Shaquille O’Neal’s net worth is calculated to be about $430 Million.

It doesn't hurt to have more money coming in no matter if you babe 430 million dollars. By gum, Sean John was worth roughly $430 in 2013 and still pushed Aquahydrate, a brand of water that looked suspiciously like Aquafresh toothpaste and even had the same Aqua word in it.

Right.  This is commercials you hate, not has-been sports figures you want to make excuses for. LOL

He's so bloody huge that I forgot he was a basketball star. I thought he was an American football player until my wife told me that he used to play basketball for the L.A. Lakers or something. 
I think he's a likeable bloke, but I don't see him as an athlete.

He's put on a pound or two since his days as an athlete.  He was a good basketball player in his day.

He's a mountain of a man, HUGE!

Basketball is a tough game, I respect him and think he's a gentle giant.

At 7 ft 1 in (2.16 m) tall[4] and 325 pounds (147 kg), he was one of the heaviest players ever to play in the NBA, where he played for six teams throughout his 19-year career.

His house is right near here in a small wealthy town called Windermere just west of Orlando.

Huge estate right on a big lake.



Yes, that is one house.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

What the hell do you even do in a house that big? You can only be in one room at a time!  I mean, what if your bedroom was at one end of the house and the kitchen at the other, and you wanted to get a snack in the middle of the night?  LOL
 
3,000 square feet might be about the biggest I'd ever want my house to be.  My CA house was 1,500+ square feet and it was plenty for me.

Does Shaq look like someone who would indulge in midnight snacks?

He probably has a custom built indoor electric cart to ride around the place in.

And for wanting a midnight snack? He's probably got someone on staff to fix one up and bring it to him.

Probably sends someone out to Burger King to pick up a bag full of Whoppers and fries and a couple of milkshakes.

This place has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths yet it's a little less than 1400 sq ft.

I moved here four years ago and the house is 2050 sq ft.  It much too large.  I don't even use two of the rooms and one of the bathrooms.  But downsizing is not a decision that I get to make. lol.  I mean I'd be fine with two bedrooms (need one for home office) and 1.5 baths, as long as it had a basement for exercise equipment and storage.

Maybe bigger than both of our houses put together.

So...Are you bragging about your work in the Peace Corp?  Your frequent flyer miles?  The ultimate success of your career?

Or your ability to use the taxpayers moneys to live above where the hard working people have landed?

Hey! I don't live in a trailer!  Maybe we should.

Shaquille O' Neal's Florida mansion is on the market for $28 million and it is the most Shaq thing ever
