Default I hope Shaq sees what KG and Duncan are doing right now...

and wishes he wasn't so lazy. If he would have stayed in shape he could still probably be dominating right now.

Shaq has always dominated with strength and athleticism.... KG and Duncan have skilled based games so not sure what comparison you're trying to make. Players like KG/Duncan will always age better.

Shaq was drafted in 92 and is 40 years old. Duncan was drafted in 97 and is 36 years old. KG was drafted on 95 and is 36 years old. So how did you come to this conclusion?

Uh... he's only 4 years older than both of them. It's not like he's 50. If he wasn't so fat and lazy he could still probably be in the league and averaging at least 15/10.

Do you have to be such a giant douche in every post I make?

I hope you see what Shaq is doing and wish you're getting paid like him.

I saw Shaq a couple of months ago and trust me he's not fat for his height. In fact he was huge (as in muscle huge) and considering he was even bigger when he was in the NBA I can see why he was always injured. He should've gone the way of KG and Duncan and just stop lifting weights.

4 years is a lot. And he might not be 50, but he is 40. How many players have played past 40? Kareem, Malone, Stockton, Jordan, Kevin Willis, that's it.

You do know no one from the 1992 draft is still playing, no one from the 93 draft either. Hill and Kidd are the on;y players left from the 94 draft. Stackhouse, Wallace, Garnett and Thomas left from the 95 draft.

Okay what about when he was lazy in his mid 30's? What's the excuse then? If he wasn't so lazy he might have been putting up 20/10 at age 36.

That's not the premise of your thread. Don't change the subject.

and that was with being over weight. Imagine if he had actually stayed in shape in the later half of his career what he could have been doing.

I think Shaq, at 40, if he was still in shape right now could easily be putting up 15/10.

36 yr old Shaq actually had better numbers than what Garnett is putting up now. 36 yr old Duncan's still ahead of both though.

Shaq played 19 seasons and had a longer prime than both Duncan and Garnett.

That's what I mean. And that was fat/lazy Shaq still capable of putting up those numbers. If he was in shape he could have easily still been carrying teams to a championship and averaging more than 20 PPG.
