Shaquille O'Neal Thinking Comeback?

Shaquille O'Neal may be thinking about a comeback ... in Mexico. O'Neal has reportedly received an offer to play a few games for Fuerza Regia, a pro basketball team in Monterrey, Mexico. O'Neal did some social work in Monterrey in August and was invited to join the team.

O'Neal, who is now an NBA analysts for TNT, most recently played with the Boston Celtics in 2010-11. O'Neal only played in 37 games (starting 36) and averaged 9.2 points and 4.8 rebounds. O'Neal is a 15-time NBA All-Star and a four-time champion who played 19 seasons, eight of which came with the Los Angeles Lakers. In 1,207 career games, O'Neal score 28,596 points and collected 13,099 rebounds in his legendary career.

O'Neal would not be the first NBA player to suit up for Fuerza Regia, as former Chicago Bulls big Dennis Rodman played for the team.
