Shaquille O'Neal RumorsAll NBA Players
“He’s an unusual force and obviously a great player,” Carlisle said after the visiting Mavs fell 112-103. “We’ll have to figure something a little better out next time, but he’s doing this to everybody. We did have some very good possessions guarding him, but he was a beast. “It presents huge challenges for the defense and for officials. He is just creating collisions out there. This is a Shaquille O’Neal-type force of nature with a point guard skill set.”

The last NBA player to record at least four such games in a single season was Shaquille O’Neal in 1993-94. pic.twitter.com/wEn2MNROja
Lest you thought SPACs were the sole domain of adult-website hosts or Grand Slam-winning tennis stars, they are also the hot commodities tool of choice for NBA stars and franchise owners. Wall Street Journal got the scoop that BowX Acquisition Corp. — a SPAC launched last year by Bow Capital founder and Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé that counts Shaquille O’Neal among its top advisors — has made its first big splash by merging with volatile real estate startup WeWork.
Basketball legend Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal is finally looking for a slam-dunk sale of his central Florida estate. And to sweeten the deal for a new owner, the 30,000-plus-square-foot spread has undergone a redesign — one that’s noticeably missing its previous unique touches. Located near Orlando in Windermere, the property — which O’Neal purchased for $3.95 million in 1993 and later expanded — asks $16.5 million.
Zion Williamson scored 30 points on 9-of-13 shooting in New Orleans’ 113-109 win over Denver on Sunday, marking the 20th straight game in which Williamson has scored at least 20 points on at least 50-percent shooting. That ties him with Karl Malone for the second-longest streak of such games in the shot-clock era (1954-55). Shaquille O’Neal is next. Per ESPN Stats and Info, O’Neal’s NBA record is 25 straight games with at least 20 points on at least 50-percent shooting. Efficiency is as much about the shots you don’t take as the ones you do, and Williamson, like O’Neal, knows which shots not to take.
