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
