O’Neal is said to have listed the mansion, which offers a view of the serene Lake Butler, since May last year. The price at the time was $28 million, but after eight months of remaining on the market, it has now been slashed by a whopping $6 million.

O’Neal’s 12-bedroom mansion is mostly customized to suit the tastes and needs of one of the world’s greatest basketball players, so it appears the eventual buyer is in for a treat.
