“I’m chasing Shaquille O’Neal right now. He has so many commercials, and businesses, and this is my friend.  When I say I’m chasing him, it’s for the right reasons. It doesn’t have anything negative, or any hate. I’m inspired by it. I love how he took his Basketball career, put it on pause, and took his business, and you forget he is Basketball player based on how business minded he became.”

“He’s another reinvention of Magic Johnson. To take your skills outside the Basketball court and create businesses.  I wanna take my skills outside of the microphone, outside the mic booth, outside the studio, into a business. That’s what I have been able to do. You should be able to do what you are great at.”

O’Neal was one of the most decorated players of his generation. The four-time NBA champion has a current net worth of $400 million. A lot of this money is from ventures beyond Basketball.
