The TNT analyst is currently being wooed by a team in the Mexican league to play a “couple of games” next month. According to a report from Xavier Cabello of ESPNDeportes.com, O’Neal, a 15-time NBA All-Star, is getting the full court press from Sergio Ganem, president of Fuerza Regia:

The 40-year-old retired NBA center received the invitation this past August during a visit to Monterrey, where he did some social work at a community center for youth in wheelchairs.

No deal is in place, but Ganem spoke with O’Neal by phone in an attempt to convince him to return to action, and the team expects a response from O’Neal next week. Ganem noted that O’Neal’s availability will depend, in large part, upon his schedule as analyst for TNT’s Inside the NBA.

Fuerza Regia has distinguished itself for attention-grabbing contracts in the past. The team brought in Dennis Rodman in 2004 for two games and 7 foot, 9-inch player Sun Ming Ming, of China. The season started Sept. 4.

1st....you talk as if shaq doesn't have body guards 2nd....if they kill them they get no ransom so there is no point in killing him.

Flawed logic

lol you act like if they would take him for ransom they would take his cheap fossil watch if he had one on. In Mexico there are no rules your in a different country where they shoot first and ask questions later. All they need to know is there is a rich American in town.

I'm not sure if mexico is that bad. I know you need to bring cash if you get into trouble with the police. When I went on vacation there many years ago it was great. Beaches are beautiful. Every country has its bad parts(well maybe not Canada, lol) so you want to do your research before going out of state, and certainly out of country.

Mexico has gotten very bad in the recent years. I would never go there. The cartels pretty much run the country now.
