Shaq not overspending Jeff Bezos Phoenix Suns…but if the billionaire wants to team up to own an NBA team – Big Diesel tells TMZ Sports He will!
Shaq said he was initially interested in buying Robert Sarvershare of the organization. After the disgraced boss announced it was up for sale last month – but when he found out that Bezos might want to get in, he went all out.
Shaq explained that even with his deep pockets — his net worth is reported to be around $400 million — he doesn’t want to compete with Bezos’ checkbook.
“No one on the planet can compete with Big Man JB,” Shaq told us this week, before adding, “because you know what? I just ordered 50 things from Amazon today. Big Man JB got the money! “
But if Bezos wants Shaq’s help — and his little cash — O’Neal says his ears are open.
“If he wants me in, I’d love to talk to him,” Shaq said.
“But,” he continued, “as far as trying to own a whole team and be with—let me tell you something, I’m scared of big JB. Shaq O’Neal is scared of big Jeb!”
It’s unclear if Bezos is genuinely interested in the team — whether he would even consider a business partner with the NBA legend.
However, he has months to figure it all out… Sarver is still in the nascent stages of selling his stake in the team.
