Shaquille O'Neal may gain another championship ring by joining LeBron James in Cleveland, but leaving Miami has already cost him nearly $3 million.
The Big Diesel's trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers from the Phoenix Suns last week came just as he sold his home on Florida's Star Island Drive -- four years and two teams since he first put it on the market.
Sitting on 2.5 acres along 300 feet of Biscayne Bay waterfront, the 19,400-square-foot home has eight bedrooms, a two-bedroom guest house, a tennis court, an indoor racquetball court, a six-car garage and a pool splashed with the Superman logo. It's just as flashy and formidable as the future Hall of Famer who owned it.
However, its closing price -- despite being the highest in Miami this year -- is as steep a dropoff from its original $32 million price tag as Shaq's acting ability is from his court presence.
