Miami Heat team captain Udonis Haslem and former Heat player Shaquille O'Neal are among the celebrities listed as co-defendants in a lawsuit against FTX, the bankrupt crypto currency. 

Haslem and O'Neal were both investors in the company. Haslem has spent his entire 20-year career in Miami. O'Neal helped lead the Heat to their first NBA championship in 2006. 

“Although Defendants disclosed their partnerships with the FTX Entities, they have never disclosed the nature, scope, and amount of compensation they personally received in exchange for the promotion of the Deceptive FTX Platform, which the SEC has explained that a failure to disclose this information would be a violation of the anti-touting provisions of the federal securities laws,” the lawsuit read. 

The celebrity defendants include football quarterbacks Tom Brady and William Trevor Lawrence, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, NBA star Stephen Curry, tennis star Naomi Osaka, comedian Larry David, baseball legend David Ortiz, baseball pitcher Shohei Ohtani, Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary and the NBA team Golden State Warriors.
