At seven-foot-one, he gave new meaning to the phrase ‘living large.’ Yet retired basketball star Shaquille O’Neal, whose estimated worth is $250 million, has done the unthinkable and purchased a small modest five-bedroom home in Mount Dora, Florida for $235,000.

According to TMZ, O’Neal’s new small home has five bedrooms, four baths, granite counter tops, wet bar, entertainment room, and cherry cabinets.

It’s unclear whether his purchase was a gift for someone near and dear to the athlete or just a real estate investment.

The 40-year-old NBA legend already owns a lakeside $250 million resort – 30 miles away – in Isleworth just outside Orlando.

The 70,000-square-foot mansion is the same property featured on a 2006 episode of MTV’s Cribs, and it’s home to Shaquille and his girlfriend reality TV star Nikki ‘Hoopz’ Alexander.

It boasts 11 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a screening room, and an indoor 20,000-square-foot basketball court.
According to Vanity Fair, O’Neal’s property also has a sunny rock pool on the grounds that he’s affectionately nicknamed ‘Shaqapulco.’

The former LA Laker also owns a 13-room home in Sudbury, Massachusetts.

Shaquille previously owned an eight-bedroom Moroccan fantasy estate, Villa Stella on Star Island in Miami, which he sold at a loss for $16 million in 2009

Women are complicated creatures. We have desires, urges and impulses we can’t always explain. We hide our secret obsessions and try to rationalize unnecessary purchases, but sometimes there’s really just no explanation. We like what we like and we’re tired of trying to figure out why. Some things, like bad TV and Pumpkin Spice Lattes, […]

Relationship 101: Why College And Dating Ultimately Doesn’t Mix

I stare at a Powerpoint presentation titled, “Introduction to Psychology.” My professor is introducing himself and the agenda of the course, but I’m too busy hiding my phone underneath my desk to answer the missed text messages from my current boyfriend. We are in the middle of a stupid argument, like most couples often find themselves […]

Shoes = Life: 17 Signs You’re Completely Addicted To Shoes

Shoes are the windows to the soul. Isn’t that the line? No? Oh, maybe that’s just my point of view, then. Shoe addiction is real, and a problem lots of people feel on a constant basis (which probably explains why shoes are the first thing you notice about a person). Your friends have told you […]

4 Ways Women Are More Like Men Than You Think

There are a lot of generalizations out there about women. As with any sweeping statement, some may have a kernel of truth, while others are vastly overblown. Perhaps we are, as a general rule, the more emotionally-driven gender. But, do we all trash-talk while getting gel manicures? Sob at the end of rom-coms? Devour Pinkberry […]
