MENLO PARK (CBS13) — Owners of the Sacramento Kings are meeting with Shaquille O’Neal tonight in Sacramento.
Vivek Ranadive and Mark Mastrov sat down for dinner with the TNT analyst and former Los Angeles Lakers star at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Melo Park.
Three months after O’Neal said he thought the Kings were sold and gone at the NBA All-Star Game in Houston, the all-star center said he’s going to help tutor DeMarcus Cousins.
O’Neal said, “I’m going to make DeMarcus Cousins the best big man in the game.”
O’Neal also praised the planned new Kings arena, which won a Sacramento City Council vote to approve $6.5 million in funding for the project.

Basically Shaq is a good friend of Mark Mastrov ... and Mark asked Shaq to help ... and Shaq said "Yes." There are no further details yet - if Shaq will be on the teams payroll ... or if he is simply doing a favor for Mark Mastrov. No further details if Shaq will help any other players or coaches....
Shaq has seen "the new arena" plans and says he thinks it will put Sacto on the map. Well.... gee... that's kind of neat because Sacto is the state capital after all... LOL About time somebody is gonna help this losing team....
Sh*t happens... but don't worry, it usually happens to me.
