Shaquille O’Neal never turns down an excellent investment opportunity, and there could also be a recent one which is piquing his interest.
The retired NBA icon O’Neal said this week an interview with TMZ that he was recently eyeing the chance to hitch the bidding for the Phoenix Suns. But O’Neal pumped the brakes a bit once he heard that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was named as a possible buyer for the team. Now as a substitute, O’Neal would love to hitch Bezos’ group if given the prospect.
“No person on this planet can compete with Big Man J.B.,” said O’Neal. “I’m not gonna be in there tryna go up against Big Man J.B.
“[But] if he wants me for it, I might gladly wish to refer to him,” O’Neal added.
O’Neal, whose net value TMZ estimates to be roughly $400 million, played for the Suns for 2 total seasons from 2008 to 2009. He was previously a minority owner for the Sacramento Kings and recently hinted at interest in buying one other certainly one of his former NBA teams.
Now-disgraced Suns owner Robert Sarver, who purchased the team in 2004, has begun the means of putting them up on the market. Bezos was amongst several wealthy figures listed as initial candidates to purchase the Suns.
