Titled, “Shaquille O’Neal: The Eras of Dominance Collection,” the assets are destined for crypto wallets across the land on October 15. These will feature 5 different designs based on key moments in his playing career, representing his time at Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic and Miami Heat. Ethernity are keeping quiet on core figures, but based on previous drops, expect varying degrees of rarity connected to limited numbers of each.

Furthermore, each NFT purchase doubles as a raffle ticket to win one of three fantastic prizes. Up for grabs, is a video call with Shaq himself, a pair of custom footwear and a dinner reservation at one of Shaq’s own music festivals.

Unlike many of his contemporaries, Shaq, isn’t just in it for the extra revenue stream either. Joining the collecting game with the OpenSea pseudonym “manofdominance,” the basketball legend has hit the NFT scene with gusto. As a result, he has purchased a number of notable acquisitions, including two Creature World NFTs, one of which sits proudly as his Twitter persona. In just one short month, he has amassed a grand collection of over 160 NFTs.

The end result, is a sporting hero with over 15 million Twitter followers, flying the NFT flag.
