Shaquille O’Neal once got so mad at a salesman that he spent $1.3 million to buy three Rolls-Royces…that he doesn’t even drive.
Shaq is one of the most famous basketball players of all time and his wealth reflects that. His net worth is said to be $400 million.
There are plenty of brilliant anecdotes about her being generous with her money, paying for people’s purchases, and even once getting an engagement ring from a random guy.
But don’t wonder if the former LA Laker can afford to buy something, because that will only “piss him off.”
Shaq detailed his interaction with the luxury car salesman on the Beverage Champions podcast.
He said, “I don’t want to spend $400,000 on a car. So I’m like, ‘Hey man, how much does it cost? No. How much does this one cost? So finally the old man said, “Yo man, you asked about all these cars, can you afford them?”
“Now I’m pissed off. I said, ‘What did you just say to me?’ So I buy three. This one, this one and this one, and I want them laid down. Move the seat back. So I bought 3 Rolls-Royces that I never drive. So there’s another million.
O’Neal is definitely a fan of a Rolls Royce and once even bought a LeBron James for his 25th birthday. Not a bad gift!
