Shaquille O’Neal has had a very busy week — even by his ridiculously next-level standards.
It all started with him being named the Reebok’s new President of Basketball. He, understandably, is very excited about what’s to come in that role.
“A big part of my role will be leveraging my network to build bridges, connect the brand with players, and help those players develop through their partnership with Reebok,” O’Neal said in a conversation with Boardroom.
That being said, the Reebok announcement was not the only reason O’Neal trended this week. His new, absolutely insane car also caused something of a stir.
O’Neal’s playing days are obviously far behind him, but he has been Charles Barkley-esque in his ability to establish himself as a crucial hoops analyst. Is he has good as Barkley at what he does? Obviously not. But he is unique in his own right.
He is also a tremendous business man. Again, not quite Magic Johnson-esque, but a reasonably similar caliber genius in that space.
Beyond that, O’Neal is also something of a headline-magnet. Be it for revealing the drug he took before his Los Angeles Lakers games, that time a woman exposed his salacious text messages to her or his brouhaha with Tom Brady’s groupie, he is always in the news for something or other.
This was just the latest example of that.

With the NBA season rapidly approaching, O’Neal will likely continue to find himself in the news cycle for one reason or another pretty frequently.
What will O’Neal ultimately go viral for next? An answer to that question will likely reveal itself in the coming days, weeks and months.
