Shaquille O'Neal and Alex Rodriguez are teaming up now to dominate a new sport ... they've bought into NRG Esports, which owns League of Legends and Counter-Strike teams.

Shaq and A-Rod are joined by White Sox superstar Jimmy Rollins in the deal which brings even more mainstream athletes into the world of eSports. NRG's chairman Andy Miller said the trio approached NRG, looking to get on board.

Rollins actually plays League of Legends ... and Shaq is tight with Miller, since they are co-owners of the Sacramento Kings. Looks like A-Rod just saw a good deal.

As we've told you, ex-NBA star Rick Fox is already a proud owner of his own LoL team -- so, esports is clearly blowing up.

Think Shaq's excited about the deal?
