Not only does Shaquille O'Neal have a lot to say about how the Miami Heat franchise is run, he wants to weigh in on the Orlando Magic someday as well.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, O'Neal would like to return to the team that drafted him and take over management when his playing career ends following the 2009-10 season.
He also plans to bring former Heat and current Suns teammate Grant Hill with him.
"Grant will be the team president -- he's a bright guy -- and I'll be the general manager," O'Neal said, according to the newspaper. "I'm serious. They need me down there with the new arena coming. Grant and I are coming to do the job."
O'Neal maintains a home in Orlando.
"A thousand days, and I'm coming home," he said, according to the paper. "I'm going to use what I call my bridge general manager skills. A lot of general managers try to do it themselves. I build bridges. I'll have teammates. All this is in a perfect world. That's my dream, anyway."
