One of the greatest NBA players of all time, Shaquille O’Neal knows what it’s like to win big on and off the court. When it comes to real estate, the retired star has an impressive portfolio, but is now seeking to part ways with one of his beautiful homes. Located in the coveted equestrian community of Bell Canyon in Los Angeles, the $2.5 million property is a slam dunk for a buyer looking for an airy spread with tranquil surroundings.Contemporary, spacious, and perched ideally with sprawling mountain views, it’s tough to find a single flaw when perusing this celebrity listing. Clocking in at 5,217-square-feet and offering 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, the price is definitely right, too.A far cry from the boisterous nature of an NBA game, this home offers sweet serenity with bright white interiors and multiple areas for breezy outdoor living. Times Shaq has had time off from being a sports analyst, the expansive terraces and sparkling pool may have been go-to spots where he could unwind. Equally primed for entertaining, the light-filled abode offers huge living areas and a grand chef’s kitchen outfitted with it’s own flat-screen TV, so a new owner will never miss a moment of any big sports game.While the LA estate is certainly not the most lavish home Shaq has owned, with a $28 million Miami mansion
higher in the running for that title, it is a charmer. The only thing missing is a basketball court, but why bring your work home?Tomer Fridman of Compass
