Shaq’s pad has 12 bathrooms, 15 bedrooms, a wine room, cinema room and full sized basketball court.
But the agency selling his home have come up with a new strategy.
Shaq’s logo and label has been removed from as much of the home as possible having previously been printed through the house.
According to ESPN, a Shaq logo now only appears in the gym.
The 7-foot basketball legend bought the property for £3m in 1993, three years after it was built.
The lucky buyer of the exclusive Orlando property will also get a 17-car showroom, a cigar bar and walk-in humidor and a soundproof home cinema.
If that wasn’t quite enough, the mansions comes kitted out with wine storage, three fireplaces, a chef’s kitchen and a lakefront office.
The property is surrounded by water, sitting between Lake Louise and Lake Butler.
The listing also notes the property has a huge swimming pool that puts Olympic-size pools to shame.

Big Shaq’s impressive abode also has an outdoor kitchen and a private dock with two covered boat slips.
Oh, and dont forget the the 18-hole golf course next door to the property.
The 900-square-foot master bedroom has a mirrored wall, expansive views of the lake, an enormous bathroom and a four-room walk-in closet.
O’Neal first listed the property for £20m in 2018.
And according to Mansion Global, the centre forward is now selling the property because he is spending more time in Atlanta as a sports analyst for TNT’s “Inside the NBA”.
