Oh, the woes of a pro athlete trying to unload a house. Shaquille O’Neal, no longer on the Miami Heat, wants to ditch his house. It’s a quaint abode on the waterfront of Star Island in Miami Beach.
Built in 1992 by Heat center Rony Seikaly, the house has eight bedrooms, an indoor basketball court, gym, steam room and sauna. The property also has a two-bedroom guest house, a tennis court, a pool, a dock and a six-car garage.
The 20,000-square-foot house goes for $29 million, down $3 million from an earlier listing. It’s located on 2.5 acres on the man-made island community. Interested? Anyone? –Matt Hennie
