Shaq Wants to Become Orlando Magic G.M.
O’Neal, who was in Boston preparing to play the Celtics Wednesday night, said after a morning practice that he hopes to take over management of the Orlando Magic when he retires as a player following the 2009-10 season.
He also expects to bring Grant Hill — former Magic player and current teammate with the Suns — along to help him.
"Grant will be the team president — he’s a bright guy — and I’ll be the general manager," O’Neal said. "I’m serious. They need me down there with the new arena coming. Grant and I are coming to do the job."
O’Neal has talked a few times over the years of returning to Orlando to play — although he said now he will finish his career in Phoenix — and also of returning eventually to become the Orange County Sheriff. [Orlando Sentinel]
