While Shaq has missed some exemplary opportunities of boosting his wealth – an opportunity to be the part of one of the biggest coffee outlets (Starbucks), he has also gone onto register his name with some of the fanciest brands. In the process he has also changed the fate of certain ones, one of which was sportswear and footwear company – Reebok, founded in the United Kingdom in 1890.
