In a hot real estate market countrywide, Orlando, Florida home prices continue to surge.

That is unless, apparently, the home was customized for a 7-foot-1 NBA center and Pro Basketball Hall of Famer, 15-time All-Star and four-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat — Shaquille O’Neal’s Orlando-area mansion, which was originally listed at $28 million.

O’Neal’s mansion has 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms along with a 17-car garage. There is also a wine room, a vast theater room, an NBA-certified indoor basketball court and an aquarium room. A resort-style swimming pool is located outside, and the mansion sits on 3.94 acres of land.

Around Orlando, historically low inventory for homes in Central Florida has seen prices climb 15% from year-over-year from 2020, according to the Orlando Regional Realtor Assoc. The average home price in Orlando is just north of $360,000.

Ballmer: Clips forging 'own identity' with arena

8:15 AM ET

LA Clippers chairman Steve Ballmer initially was content to play at Staples Center — in the same building as the Los Angeles Lakers and the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings — when he bought the franchise for $2 billion in 2014.

But within a year, Ballmer said he realized the Clippers needed to build their own stadium if they wanted to build their own “identity.”

“We needed to say, ‘We’re our own guys. We don’t play in the same place as the other guys. We’re going to have our own identity,'” Ballmer told ESPN in a wide-ranging interview in advance of Friday’s groundbreaking for the Clippers’ new arena in Inglewood.

Ballmer estimated the new arena, which will be known as the Intuit Dome and is scheduled to open for the 2024-25 season, will cost him upward of $2 billion — essentially the same price he paid for the franchise just seven years

Dennis Schroder pokes fun at how he 'fumbled the bag'

Sep 15, 2021

Brianna Williams

Dennis Schroder made headlines when he signed with the Boston Celtics recently, but it wasn’t about the money he gained. It was more about the money he lost.

Last season, the guard turned down a four-year, $84 million contract extension from the Los Angeles Lakers in order to become an unrestricted free agent and pursue a bigger deal.

In a free-agency class that included Kawhi Leonard, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, Schroder’s woes were a well-documented storyline this offseason.

Following an underwhelming postseason performance and receiving little interest from NBA teams during the summer, he ended up signing a one-year deal with Boston for the $5.9 million midlevel exception.

It is a far cry from the offer he rejected, but Schroder is still a good sport about it.

On Wednesday, Schroder put up an Instagram post to celebrate his 28th birthday and poked fun at his sizable pay cut.
