Shaquille O’Neal has enough money to buy whatever he wants, including enormous mansions and a fleet of cars, so when TMZ reported recently that the b-ball star dropped almost a quarter of a million bones on a “regular” house just 30 miles away from his huge pad, people were confused.

Shaq’s mansion in Orlando boasts eleven bedrooms, thirteen baths, and its own basketball court, but apparently that wasn’t enough; it’s reported that in July, he bought a 3,900 square-foot home in Mount Dora, Florida. What has people baffled is the fact that the house is pretty tame compared to his 70,000 square-foot mansion.

Some are speculating that Shaq might be using the second home as a place to rendezvous with the ladies, but he has no comment so far.

      Hey mann I hear you, but keep the faith never say never.
      the possibilities of buying a home may soon be around the corner.
      I hope your little girl gets that room.

    More power to him!!!! He’s a single man now, so you can figure the rest out. I can’t even get one house, let alone two, in this recession!!!! If you’re not an entertainer or an athlete, you’re in BIG trouble now. When it comes to gettin’ ahead, it’s dead right now. Never seen it like this before. I’m probably payin’ more taxes than he is, quite disgusting!!!!
