Shaq’s message to his kids about money: ‘We ain’t rich. I’m rich.’
The NBA legend’s net worth is said to be around $400 million
Shaq is what the pillars of the community should look like, a man to be admired, He leads by example not lip-service. Not because he is filthy rich, but because the man has old school value and is not afraid of walking the walk and talking the talk.
He said he expected his children to go to college and get their degrees and if they ever come up with a company they want their father to invest in, they have to present it to him like anybody else.
Best of all; the big man has a particular disdain for certain celebrities, the reckless life styles and the bad examples they set.
“These celebrities are going freaking crazy and I don’t want to be one. I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it,” he told the New York Post.
“I don’t want to be in that category. Celebrities are crazy, they really are. Don’t call me that anymore. These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”
There can not be enough said about The Shaq. Hopefully his great example will rub off on some of WANNA-BEES & THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE. Whether they know it or not; their behavior and misbehavior has a very strong impact on the kids.
There should be a lot more (don’t call Shaq a celeb) high profile people like O’Neal around. It would make the world a lot better place to live.
