We all know who Shaq is right? Former NBA player about 7 feet tall is known as an all-around good guy. Well, Shaq bought a home in Carrolton Texas, which is not what you would expect.

For a guy that is reportedly worth over 400 million, you figure a home purchase in the Dallas metroplex would be a mega mansion with 14 bedrooms, gold toilets, and some crazy huge home theater that seats 50.

But that is not the case. Shaq has purchased a modest home in Carrolton Texas. It is huge by my standards, over 5000 square feet and it has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Let's take a look inside this 1.25 million dollar home.

This is a shot of the exterior. It is in a gated community so you won't be able to just drive up and visit.

A little peek in the office looks nice. but will Shaq have to remodel so that he can fit behind the desk?

It looks nice and is not too overdone. I do have an issue with the cord for the light over the picture is showing.

Again, it's not too crazy. I do like the windows. The floors, though are gorgeous.

I may be a little old school but I like the kitchen. The gar stools look a little out of place but the views from the kitchen to the back yard and all the light coming in make this a spot where my family could hang out for sure.

It is all about the views and the light for this area of the house.

It seems like every room of this house has great windows that let in the light and give this bedroom a very airy feel.

Beautiful inside and out describes this bathroom. I bet the master bathroom will be remodeled for sure to accommodate a 7-foot-tall Shaq trying to take a shower.

Exercise Room, Gym

With a small waterfall and seating areas, the backyard is really a great place to unwind after a long day at work.
