Despite the mockery of the Sacramento Kings in the early 2000s, Shaq seems to have gotten a change of heart. The Kings revealed the former NBA big man will join the team’s new ownership group. Per the AP:
“The Kings announced Monday that Shaquille O’Neal has acquired a minority stake in the team under new owner Vivek Ranadive. The Kings will introduce the four-time NBA champion at a news conference Tuesday in Sacramento.
During the height of his career with the Los Angeles Lakers, O’Neal fueled the rivalry with the Kings with his play on the court and his personality off of it.”
