Huh? (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
For some reason, earning more than $200 million in his career is not enough for O’Neal and he’s been chasing one more big paycheck instead of a fifth ring.
Sources have indicated he’s even tested the market in Europe trying to land one last $10 million payday. But all of that is unlikely. Indeed, the Cavs may consider re-signing Shaq to a short deal that would pay him $5 million-$7 million and wait for a contender to get desperate to match up with the Lakers or Magic.
Sounds like Shaq’s got his priorities all messed up. If I’d made $200 million already, I’d be on the phone with Pat Riley, Danny Ainge and Mitch Kupchak begging teams to take me with the minimum. After all that guap, there’s no way I’d ever consider going to Europe for one last payday. Child please. The more I hear about Shaq, the less I think he’ll accept a backup role behind the other O’Neal.
