Shaquille O’Neal Plans to Own an NBA Team in Newark, New Jersey

by October 18, 2011

In a wide-ranging Q&A with the NY Times, Shaq once again talks about owning a team in his hometown of Newark, NJ. And the big fella throws a nice little jab at New Jersey’s current, but soon-departing hoops team (“The Nets? I don’t know who the Nets are.”): “Q. You’ve talked about owning a team someday. Do you still want to do that? A. ‘Yes. And I’m looking forward to bringing a team to Newark. I haven’t spoken to Mayor Booker about it yet, but I’m working on it. I know Newark can support an N.B.A. team. And I’m going to be one of the guys that’s going to bring a team there.'”
