(The Spread) – After an event-filled 20-year career, Shaquille O’Neal has officially decided to hang ‘em up. That leaves oddsmakers wanting to know what he’ll embark on next.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog have released some fun Shaq props that center on what he’ll do next. Interestingly, the prop “Partake in a MMA match” is favored at 2/3.
Back in 2009, Shaq started spending his offseasons training at Jonathan Burke’s Gracie Gym in Orlando, Florida. He trained with Burke for over 10 years, where did the full gamut of MMA, boxing, jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai and wrestling. Shaq has also talked about eventually stepping into the octagon, going as far as to say that he wanted to fight fellow big man Hong Man Choi in his first and only professional MMA fight.
The prop “Act in a Major Motion Picture” has 2/1 odds for the proposed question of what Shaq will do next in 2011. He’s already appeared in such movies as “Blue Chips,” “Kazaam” and “Steel,” where he was nominated for a Razzie Award for the Worst Actor in 1997.
The prop “Play another game in the NBA” is 5/1, “Put out an album” is 10/1 and “Get a job as a Cop” is 10/1. Shaq has already partook in those last two props mentioned.
