Shaquille Oneal’ s Relationship With The Tiger King
The current stay at home order has led to a whole lot of Netflix and quarantine. This has lead to the discovery of many new shows and one that everyone is talking about is 'The Tiger King". Honestly Saturday I needed to get out so Mateo and I decided to support local businesses like we had done the day before (Friday we hit Waffle Me Up and Dharma) Saturday we decided to hit the new hot spot at Indian Creek Plaza in Caldwell - Amano. Amano means by hand in Spanish. The take out food was delicious and the the drinks we're next level but since we couldn't eat there we went back to my spot and next thing you know we went down the "Tiger King" rabbit hole.
We couldn't believe it, I mean the shenanigans that took place are things that you can't write. Mateo and I kept looking at each other like WTF. Before we knew it we 're on episode three and out of the blue there was Shaq. Yes Shaquille O'neal, So what's the story and how long did Shaq and Joe Exotic know each other? How close we're they? Did they have a business relationship? "We went back a couple times," he added. "Then we go back another time and we found out that he's involved with all the stuff and then, actually, I stopped going. I had no idea all that stuff was going on."
Shaq recently explained how he ended up making a cameo in an episode of The Tiger King during his podcast - The Big Podcast with Shaq.
O'Neal said he first visited the spot during a bus trip to see the Dallas Mavericks against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
"On the way we see a sign that says 'Tiger Sanctuary,'" O'Neal explained on the podcast, via Lisa Respers France of CNN.com. "So we go in there and it's a beautiful place and the character that was there was Exotic Joe."
"I was just a visitor," O'Neal later said, via TMZ. "I met this guy. Not my friend. Don’t know him. Never had any business dealings with him, and I had no idea any of that stuff was going on."
If you haven't seen The Tiger King and you have some time... it's a must see.
