The 46-year-old former center spent a little under $4 million for the house, fresh out of college and just one year into his first NBA contract. Shaq-apulco remained O’Neal’s primary home for the next 25 years, even as he moved around the NBA, playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Boston Celtics.
O’Neal routinely took reporters on tours of the house, and even shot an episode of “MTV Cribs” there.
Now, in retirement, he’s selling the supersize, 12-bedroom home because he’s spending more time in Atlanta as a basketball analyst for TNT. He’s listed the mansion for $28 million.
Built in 1990, the house and its 4 acres are located on the shores of Lake Butler inside Isleworth, a gated golf community a short drive from Orlando.
Just beyond the double staircases, the great room alone clocks in at 1,170 square feet. It has a stone fireplace that reaches the two-story ceiling. There’s a bank of large windows looking out to the lake.
Speaking of nicknames, Superman references are found throughout Shaq-apulco. His 15-by-30-foot bed is emblazoned with the Superman logo, the lighting in his home theater has Superman logos, and many of his vehicles parked in the 17-car garage feature Superman emblems. There’s even a full-size Superman statue parked at the end of his dock.
The indoor basketball court has a Miami Heat logo, framed memorabilia, and low-rise bleachers.
