Shaquille O'Neal: I Lost $200,000 Gambling (VIDEO)

It seems that Shaquille O'Neal likes to gamble, if there is any truth to an All-Star Weekend comment he made to Jermaine Dupri. SportsByBrooks finds footage of the Cavs center casually copping to losing nearly a quarter of a million dollars while gambling with Dupri.

In the below video, O'Neal says that "this man liked to gamble with me, he hit me for about $200,000, but I'm ready now. In the Jaguar, Ferrari, switching four lanes, top down screaming out money ain't a thing. I'm ready now. He got me for about $200,000 back in the day, but I'm ready now."

If true, O'Neal would be far from the only athlete to enjoy gambling. Antoine Walker faces criminal charges for massive gambling debts, and one alleged mistress claims Tiger Woods had a massive $1-million limit while gambling in Las Vegas. (It's also possible that he and Woods share an affinity for blonde mistresses.) Scroll down to watch Shaq's comments.
