Shaquille O’Neal is on a mission to buy one of the World’s sports wears and apparel brands, Reebok . The brand which its net value as of today remains unknown but was worth well more than $3.8 Billion when Adidas bought it in 2005.

The big Shaq as he is often called was the highest paid sportsman in 2004. The late Nineties and the 2000’s were the years of the Big Shaq is as his dominance in the basket ball court during his run with the Los Angeles Lakers and Maimi Heat.

Ever since retiring from the game of Basketball, Shaquille ‘O Neal is reported to be making more money than his playing days. Having huge stakes in multiple investments win multiple industries. Shaq’s been able to build a business empire consisting of restaurant franchises, car washes, fitness gyms, his own line of branded products and has forged partnerships with Carnival Cruise Line and Papa John’s, among others. His next move? According to the big man himself, he wants to buy Reebok.

The Shoes and Sports Wears Brand, Reebok, on the other hand, has being kind of laid back recently as its rivals dominates the sneaker, sports fashion and apparels world. Hence Shaq told CNBC’s interview program Make it: “Well, [Authentic Brands Group, one of the companies] I’m involved in, we just bought Sports Illustrated, but I would love to purchase Reebok,”

Meanwhile, there, has being no world from the Reebok camp as yet, if Shaqulle ‘O Neal has reached out to them with an offer, nor has it being reported that Reebok has being put on sale. Until such a time, this will remain just an idea of the Big Man alone.
