H/T the Wall Street Journal:

If Shaq has a rack — and he certainly does — chances are he’s spending it on apps.

“I’m not afraid to say I’m a geek at heart,” Shaq told the Wall Street Journal. “I honestly spend about $1,000 on apps a week–real money. When I’m not working, I spend all my money on apps.”

Shaq added the he bought about 20 deer hunting games last week alone. TIME notes that spending $1,000 on apps “is a real feat, however, given that the average price of an iPhone app is just $.19. That’s 5,263 apps. Impressive.”
