Re: Will Shaq help Cousins mature?
He helped demolish the Kings’ championship dreams a decade ago, and later made headlines referring to them as “the Sacramento Queens.”
Now NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has signed on as a part owner, the Kings announced Monday, a move expected to bring the team a Shaq-sized helping of publicity and glitter, and one that could influence the looming ballot-box fight over a proposed new arena in downtown Sacramento.
O’Neal, the ever-quotable veteran of 19 NBA seasons, will be formally introduced by new majority owner Vivek Ranadive on Tuesday at the Kings’ practice facility at Sleep Train Arena. Ranadive wouldn’t disclose details of O’Neal’s share other than to call him a “substantial investor.”\
