So I got dragged to a couple of jewelry stores over the past couple of weeks because a friend of mine has been shopping for an engagement ring for his fiancee and I noticed in one of the stores that Shaq has his own jewelry line at Zales (check it out here):

funny thing I noticed, there were a lot of crosses in the collection, but Shaq's Muslim? I thought that was kind of odd.


Anyways... I think Shaq is overreaching a little and trying to brand himself ala Jordan.


Thoughts?

lol, please

Not bad. Does he need the money? Doubtful. But why not? Shaq is a legend anyway, despite random children trying to discredit him all the time in the NBA forum, he does wht he wants.

It's all about the money. He was always thinking of businesses to own and ways to make money outside of basketball, a very smart move. Unlike most other athletes, he actually cares about his investments and will set up his family for future generations.

Read Shaq's book... He invested his money so well throughout his career. He invested in google before they hit it big, and now he's getting big checks from them.

I'm aware of that, but that said, none of my Muslim friends wear crosses (or, by extention, the star of David). Those are symbols from other faiths, so yes, even though Islam incorperates elements of the Judeo/Christina culture into their beliefs, it is far from common for them to embrace symbols from those religions.

But most of what he touches off the court is garbage and his jokes are lame. And I hate basketball.

Shaq Diesel is the debut album by professional basketball player and rapper, Shaquille O'Neal, released on October 26, 1993 through Jive Records. The album, which featured production from Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Def Jef, Erick Sermon, K-Cut and Meech Wells, became a surprising success, reaching 25 on the Billboard 200 and eventually reaching platinum status on March 21, 1994 for shipping of one million copies.

Two singles from the album also managed to fare well on the charts, "(I Know I Got) Skillz", made it to #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 and managed to reach gold status on December 21, 1993 for shipping of 500,000 copies, while "I'm Outstanding" made it to #47 on the Hot 100. A third single entitled "Shoot Pass Slam" was also released, but did not make it to the Billboard charts.

:cool:

Shaq is also the highest paid player in NBA history with over 300+ million in earnings.
Say what you want about Shaq but he is smart when it comes to money.
