Shaq played until he was 38, that's not bad at all

I agree. But he could have realistically retired with 6 or 7 rings if he really stayed motivated.

It should also be noted that Shaq was playing with Nash and the Suns that season which helped rejuvenate his game somewhat after the last two disappointing seasons in Miami.

Shaq's longevity is overrated. The guy clearly milked his career as much as he could. His days in Boston were laughable. 36 year old Shaq was also playing with Nash, Amare, Hill, Bell, etc.. and then Shaq played with Lebron... Tim Duncan and KG would be pretty sick with those teammates.

OP is one of the most unintelligent people on this board, if not the most. I've never seen him make a decent thread.

Shaq hurt is achilles, and was going to take over 1 year to recovery, especially at 300 pounds, so he retired.

This. Shaq likely monitors what Duncan is doing, but KG has nothing on Shaq's career, so I doubt he worries about him.

Shaq was still good at old age. He wasn't first option like KG & Duncan though. This is what happens if you sign up with every team available.

If KG & Duncan would went other teams they wouldn't average these numbers.

Why is OP acting like size wasn't a big part of Shaq's success? He want scoring by using foot work of shooting from 15-18 ft away. He used his sheer size and strength to back players down, to move them, to take up space.

What would losing weight or muscle accomplish for his game?

OP just proving himself to be a moron.

he played a lot longer and at a much higher level than most people expected. plenty of people no one ever expected more from work ethic wise were not good players at nearly the age he was.

Old Shaq could have been better if he had better work ethic and more passion for the game.

But that goes for prime Shaq as well really.

if shaq stayed at his orlando weight then his body wouldn't of had to carry so much weight, but then again that weight allowed him to destroy opponents. However, shaq was useless out side of the paint.
