He's one of the most well-known pro basketball players in the history of the game, and now Shaquille O'neal is gaining publicity of a different kind - as he has been questioned in a criminal case involving kidnapping and robbery.
According to TMZ reports, on the night of February 11, 2008, a friend of Shaq's named Ladell Rowles (who's allegedly a member of the L.A. Main street Mafia Crip Gang) sought out Robert Ross in an effort to seek and destroy an alleged sex tape he had of Shaq.
After nineteen years of hitting the hardwood, Shaquille O'Neal officially announced his retirement from the NBA earlier today (June 1).
Taking to his Twitter page to reveal his decision, the 39-year-old basketball pro posted a video explaining, "We did it. Nineteen years, baby. I want to thank you very much, that’s why I’m telling you first, I’m about to retire. Thank you, talk to you soon.”
