Jermaine O’Neal cuts Texas mansion price by $2 million
Retired NBA All-Star Jermaine O’Neal is lowering the price of his South Lake, Texas mansion by $2 million. The property is now valued at $9.9 million. The mansion was constructed back in 2012. The South Carolina native tried to sell his property via an auction in December 2019. However, the reserve price of $11.49 million was too high for auctioneers.
Furthermore, the 16,477-square ft. estate includes eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, one world class gym, a pool table inside a large game room, an elevator and a six-car garage. Not to mention, his mansion sits on five acres of land, and O’Neal has an indoor basketball court, an outdoor pool with a waterslide and a bowling alley. What more could anyone ask for?
The house has been on the market for about a year-and-a-half. Unless Shaquille O’Neal or Michael Jordan are interested, it’s doubtful the property will be sold anytime soon. Additionally, it should be noted that the retired player earned $168,794,021 over the course of his 18-year career. That number does not include endorsement deals.
