Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal hung up his shoes from the competitive game at the end of the 2010-2011 NBA Season, but the man known by the single nickname Shaq remains one of the most interesting voices in sports, nearly a decade after retirement.
But the 15-time All-Star, four-time NBA champion, and Pro Basketball Hall of Famer also has a notable voice when it comes to business.
Since leaving the court he’s been not just as a commercial pitchman but also an active investor in businesses that span everything from real estate and esports to home security tech and food.
