Shaquille O’Neal’s business prowess has become legendary over the years — and he recently used the proceeds from it to make some lucky diners’ and restaurant staff’s nights.

On Sunday, O’Neal reportedly paid the dinner bills for over 40 tables and even bought dinner for the entire server team at New York’s Jue Lan Club, per Page Six.

The grand total for his bill was “well over $25,000” and included an “extremely generous” gratuity for his server(s) that was “the biggest tip they’ve ever received.”

Shaq made $286.3 million through his NBA contracts during his playing career. Since retiring in 2011, the 50-year-old has established himself as one of the big personalities on “NBA on TNT” and continues to invest in a highly-diverse portfolio of businesses.

Among them is NRG Esports, which was founded by Kings co-owner Andy Miller and also includes Alex Rodriguez among its investors.

O’Neal’s net worth is estimated around $400 million.
