  • Shaquille O'Neal Declines Orlando Magic GM Interview

    Shaq declines invitation to discuss Magic GM job - Yahoo! Sports

    Does the Magic want to lose Dwight Howard? Shaq and Dwight dont like each other. Shaq would probably trade him away for Bynum to help the Lakers. LOL! Plus Shaq would have been off NBA on TNT which would have been better for everyone.

    NBA great Shaquille O'Neal has declined an invitation to interview for the Orlando Magic's vacant general manager position.

    O'Neal had earlier expressed interest in the job.

    "When I first heard about the vacancy for the Orlando Magic general manager position, I was clearly intrigued," O'Neal said in a statement Thursday. "I was drafted by the Magic, I have a great love for the franchise, and I have made the city of Orlando my home. Additionally, I have great admiration and respect for the DeVos family.

    "However, this is not a job I have an interest in pursuing. I feel very fortunate to be with TNT and to have the best job in sports. I look forward to many more years with Charles (Barkley), Kenny (Smith) and E.J. (Ernie Johnson). I wish the best for the Magic and I am confident that they will select a great GM and coach."

          This kind of thing just shows why the Magic are not going to be a top franchise for a while. They have to trade Dwight anyway this summer so why fire Stan when he is going to be better than anyone they can get. Shaq to serve as a figurehead would have been nothing more than what MJ does with the Bobcats. I can't imagine Shaq spending 18 hours a day scouting, working the phones, or being productive. If the Magic are smart they will go after Donnie Walsh who is probably the only guy capable of turning the team from a bunch of overpaid average guys into a real contender.

              True to a point, but MJ is majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.

                Nope, me either. Just because you were a dominating center in the 90's doesn't mean you'd be a good coach, GM, etc. Bird and Ainge are good GM's. Dumars used to be.
