Welcome to BR5, your daily sports and pop culture news.
When sports fans think of Shaquille O'Neal, they may think of him as one of the most dominating players to ever play the game of basketball or as a gentle-giant comedian. On the other hand, the future NBA Hall of Fame center has his share of memorable gigs in the spotlight as a rapper, actor and sheriff's deputy. Not to mention, he has a Ph.D.
Now, the 7'1", 325-pound star may be switching his game up a bit.
ESPN tweeted that the "Rapping Genie" may meet with the Orlando Magic to discuss the possibility of taking a front office position.
Which role would he fill? General manager.
This is a huge step up from Shaq Daddy's most recent job as a basketball analyst on TNT.
O'Neal has zero front office experience, but the Magic think it may be a good way to assist team efforts in keeping their current center Dwight Howard by signing him to a new deal.
The former first-round 1992 NBA Draft pick began his career during the 1992-1993 season with the Magic and stayed there until the 1995-1996 season. Following his four-year stay with the club, he played for the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics.
O'Neal's final season came with the Celtics 2010-2011. In 37 games, he averaged 9.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game.
If the Newark, N.J., native takes the job, will his team's 2012-2013 winning percentage be better than his career .527 free throw percentage? Let us know below!
