Shaquille O'Neal may no longer be on the basketball court, but he's still involved in the sport as much as possible. The legendary NBA center is now a minority owner of a team that he once teased by calling them "Queens." The Associated Press reported on Sept. 23, 2013, that Shaquille O'Neal officially joined the ownership group of the Sacramento Kings.
The franchise announced the deal on Monday and said that Shaq acquired a minority stake in the team under the new ownership of Vivek Ranadive. O'Neal will officially be announced by the team on Tuesday.
While Shaquille O'Neal was with the Los Angeles Lakers, there was a huge rivalry with the Kings, and he showed it on and off the court. That was one point where O'Neal referenced the team as the "Sacramento Queens" as the Lakers rallied from a 3-2 deficit to win the 2002 Western Conference Finals.
The 41-year-old O'Neal has worked with TNT as an NBA analyst for the past two seasons.
Throughout his career, Shaquille O'Neal racked up records that so many others may never even dream of seeing. During his career, O'Neal played for the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Boston Celtics.
He was a 15-time All-Star and won the NBA MVP back in 2000.
