MIAMI - Former NBA all-stars Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley flew into Miami to talk to the Miami Heat ownership.
The Heat just won the 2012-2013 NBA Finals by defeating The San Antonio Spurs in a hard fought best four out of seven series that went the distance.
O'Neal has been wanting to purchase an NBA team for some time now. And Charles "The Fat Bro" Barkley is one of the biggest sports gamblers in the country and he too has expressed a desire to be a team owner.
At first the Dandy Duo talked about buying the Los Angeles Lakers from Jeanie Buss, but decided against it because they really want to buy an NBA team and not a three ring circus.
They also tossed around the idea of acquiring the Boston Celtics but both bruthas passed saying that they want no part of the harsh Boston winters.
O'Neal said that owning the Miami Heat would be great because he knows that Chuck (Barkley) would definitely lose some weight just walking around in the Florida heat.
SIDENOTE: Barkley told Sporting Chance Magazine that the only thing he would not like about living in Miami is those awful hurricanes which he described as being "turrible, turrible, turrible."
