Boy, that didn’t last long now did it. In less than 24 hours, Shaquille O’Neal has gone from a candidate for Orlando’s GM job, to a candidate that had little chance to get Orlando’s GM job, and finally to a candidate that is not interested in Orlando’s GM job.
See what listening to “sources” that may or may not have been Shaquille O’Neal himself gets you.
Here’s the statement that Shaq released:
“When I first heard about the vacancy for the Orlando Magic general manager position, I was clearly intrigued.” he said in a statement. “I was drafted by the Magic, I have a great love for the franchise, and I have made the city of Orlando my home. Additionally, I have great admiration and respect for the DeVos family. However, this is not a job I have an interest in pursuing. I feel very fortunate to be with TNT and to have the best job in sports. I look forward to many more years with Charles, Kenny and E.J. I wish the best for the Magic and I am confident that they will select a great GM and coach.”
Someone may need to check on Chris Broussard.
