Shaq Hits NYC With Hoopz Talks Bringing A NBA Team To Newark
Shaq and Hoopz were leaving the Trump Soho Hotel in NYC yesterday afternoon.
The former NBA star and current NBA analyst is in talks of bringing a new professional basketball team to his hometown of Newark now that the Nets is headed to Brooklyn..
Seems like his relationship is afloat
At an appearance at the Newark Boys & Girls Club yesterday, Shaquille revealed he's still working doing something similar to billionaire (and former Nets owner) Ray Chambers, who brought the team he co-owns, the Devils, to Newark:
“Yes, still working on it, still having conversations and still doing certain things to help beautify this city,” O’Neal said. “When the time is right, we’ll have a party. I don’t want to say things that are out of pretext or context. There’s things going on, we’re working on it, trust me. We’re working on it every day.”
And about his role in the team:
“It would be as an owner, possible general manager, possibly introducing some people to some people,” O’Neal said. “A couple of years ago I tried to help the marriage of the Nets to the Newark arena when I just made the statement, ‘How come the Nets are not playing in this arena?’ It was too late. But if I had been in those conversations earlier, hopefully the Nets would still be playing (in Newark).”
