What Is Shaquille ‘Shaq’ O’Neal's Net Worth In 2022?

Shaquille ‘Shaq’ O’Neal is one of the most successful and iconic basketball players of all time and during his career and since his retirement he has accumulated significant wealth.

After spending his college years at Louisiana State University, also the alma mater of Odell Beckham Jr, Shaq was the first pick in the 1992 NBA draft.

Standing at 7ft 1in, Shaq had an NBA career which lasted for 19 years. He played for six teams, including the LA Lakers, and shared a court with fellow legends of the sport such as LeBron James

O’Neal won everything there is to win in the NBA, he is the recipient of four NBA championships and was the league’s most valuable player in the year 2000.

The fifteen time All Star has had enormous financial success both due to his incredible ability on the court and his impressive marketability off the court.

What Is Shaquille O’Neal’s Net Worth In 2022?

Shaquille O’Neal has a net worth of approximately $400 million, according to celebrity net worth.com.

He famously spent the first $1 million of his NBA salary in just half an hour and holds the record for the largest purchase in Walmart history.

Shaq has since made a number of wise investments. For example, in 2013 he paid $5 million for a 1% stake in the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. He maintained this stake for eight years until, in 2021, he was able to sell his 1% for $11 million. 

Shaq earned $292 million from his NBA salary throughout his career and simultaneously earned $200 million in endorsements while playing.


His significant wealth has funded an impressive real estate portfolio. He owns a 15 acre estate in suburban Atlanta and owns a home in Bel Canyon, Los Angeles.

Shaq recently sold his 35,000 square feet Orlando home, which has an indoor basketball court and a 17 car garage, for $16.5 million in January 2021.

He is seemingly very generous with his wealth, the NBA legend recently made headlines after deciding to pay $25,000 to cover everyone’s tab at a restaurant.
