Shaquille O'Neal retires...to play golf?

After 19 seasons as a professional basketball player, Shaq announced his intention to retire this afternoon (on Twitter, of course).

In a 15-second video, Shaq thanks his fans and ends by saying, "Talk to you soon." The camera then pans to Shaq's window, which overlooks a golf course.

Could this be symbolic? Is Shaq bidding farewell to basketball, and saying hello to golf?
