farrahferguson cont. At 7'1″ tall and 325 pounds Shaquille O'Neal is one of the biggest men ever to play in the NBA. His size didn't scare scouts or teams and he was drafted first overall in the 1992 NBA Draft by the Orlando Magic and almost instantly (and for the entire 19-year span of his NBA career) became one of the best centers in the league, personifying the big man in the middle. He retired in 2011 after spending time playing for the Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Boston Celtics.Shaq's individual awards and accolades in his storied 19-season professional basketball career are many.
They include the 1999–2000 MVP award, the aforementioned 1992–93 NBA Rookie of the Year award, 15 All-Star game selections, three All-Star Game MVP awards, three Finals MVP awards, 14 All-NBA team selections, and three NBA All-Defensive Team selections. Shaq is one of only three players to win NBA MVP, All-Star game MVP, and Finals MVP awards in the same year (2000). Along with the honors and accolades previously listed, Shaq scored 28,596 points, and collected $292 million in paychecks from six teams.Shaq learned that lesson his banker tried to teach him well. In Shaq's own words: "It is not about how much money you make. The question is — are you educated enough to KEEP it." Unlike many athletes who struggle to find their way after retiring, today Shaq actually earns MORE money per year now than he ever did in his playing years. Shaq earns $20-$25 million per year from his post-NBA empire. He has endorsement deals with companies like Icy Hot, Gold Bond, Buick, Zales, and others. He is the joint owner of 155 Five Guys Burgers restaurants, 17 Auntie Annie's Pretzels restaurants, 150 car washes, 40 24-hour fitness centers, a shopping center, a movie theater, and several Las Vegas nightclubs. That's enough to impress someone like Bill Gates. #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #basketball #nba #Shaq #shaquilleoneal

farrahferguson Black History Moment Shaquille O'Neal spent the first $1 million he made from the NBA within 30 minutes of receiving the check. He hadn't even played in a professional basketball game yet. Shaq may be a living basketball legend today, but once upon a time he was a 21 year old newly drafted NBA player fresh out of LSU who blew through money like it was going out of style. He very easily could have gone the way of so many other bankrupt and in debt athletes who, showered with money and fame at an early age, blow their wealth rather than build upon it.

Fortunately for Shaq, two things happened next: #1) His banker immediately called him up in a rage, warning Shaq that he would end up like so many other athletes –FLAT BROKE – if he didn't get his life under control. #2) Shaq listened.

Many young athletes might have ignored the banker's advice, but Shaq didn't come with any attitude of entitlement. When he was told to shape up, he actually listened, making him a rare breed of professional athlete.
Shaquille Rashaun O'Neal was born March 6, 1972 in Newark. He led his high school team to a 68-1 record in his first two years, helping the team win the state championship during his senior year. In 1989 he had 791 rebounds, which remains a state record to this day. #Shaq #blackhistory #shaquilleoneal
