Shaquille O’Neal loves making money but he lives to give it back and serve the people in the community who are the major part of him becoming a superstar basketball player turned businessman.
O’Neal might be one of the very few NBA players of previous generations who made much more money post-retirement than he did while collecting tens of millions in NBA salary.
Thanks to his several investments in super successful MNC giants like Google and his own various businesses in the States, he has made a massive fortune of over $400 million.
The giver in The Big Diesel has kept growing larger since his playing career started. The TNT analyst always finds ways to do some random acts of kindness like giving away money, cars, massive tips to waiters and even diamond rings.
His contribution to the unprivileged and underserved communities through the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation is simply generous, which defines who he is at the core.
