Shaq is one of the best centers ever. He played the game like no one else....no one got beat up and hacked like he did.


And we have a lazy, fat, half crazy poster dissing him when he couldn't even make his 6th grade team, smh.

That's half of ISH in a nutshell, my dude.

Shaq pretty much became a TV announcer within hours of retiring

He should have called it quits a couple of seasons - and teams - before he did.

Yes, Shaq's size helped him to dominate. But if he could have developed more skill like Duncan and KG along with staying in shape so he could play more (I mean the guy sat out A LOT during the regular season in the later half of his career) he could have been even better.

I'm not saying he sucked. He retired with 4 championships and was the most physically dominating center in the history of the NBA. But I just wonder if he had a better work ethic how much better he could have been.

This coming from a guy who defended Eddy Curry as if he wasn't the laziest, fattest NBA player ever.

F*ck off dude. Seriously.

I love how Shaq retires and now everyone defends him like he was so perfect. Come on, after he won that last championship in Miami he became fat and lazy. Actually he was fat and lazy after he won his first championship in LA but managed to win two more and then became so fat and lazy he couldn't win another one in LA. He only got motivated again for two more seasons in Miami and could only win one more championship.

Come on. Enough defending him already. The guy was a lazy fat f*ck in the later half of his career and if he had the work ethic of Duncan and KG he could have been so much better.

I don't even know what threads you've made. But you sound like a major douchebag so I don't really give a shit.

I think Shaq, at 40, if he was still in shape right now could easily be putting up 15/10.
What about the pounding he took through out his career in the paint? Yes, he was lazy but you gotta factor in his style of play. His weight and size.

Yao, who isn't fat and was a hardworker, couldn't even play pass the age of 30 because he couldn't get his left foot fixed.

For Shaq for to play nearly 20 seasons is quite remarkable. At 36, his 2008-09 season in Phoenix looked impressive. 75 games, 17.8PPG, 8.4 RPG, 60%FG
10 games above .500 but missed the playoffs b/c of the stacked WC.

The only thing remarkable is that he played for 6 different teams and tried to piggy back his way to championships. His legacy didn't even need that. People who are impressed by how many seasons he played should seriously go back and watch him in the last 2-3 years. Just because he was on the court doesn't mean he should have been or was helping in any serious way.

He played well during the 2010 Playoffs for the Cavs, especially against the Celtics. He was their only consistent player outside of LeBron in that series.

13 and 5 with nearly 4 fouls and 2 turnovers a game... clearly he was just a shell of himself. Personally I think he should have retired after that season or the season before. His longevity had nothing to do with him still be a winning piece or serviceable big, and everything to do with his humongous ego. I don't think he needed to play until his wheels fell off.

13-5 on 23.5 MPG was more than what most people expected out of him. Personal fouls don't mean a thing in a playoff series like that(against the Celtics style). He only had 10 TO's in 6 games; 1.6 average, not 2.

Everybody knew he couldn't play night in, night out 82+ games a season but he was still valuable for the playoffs. As bad as he looked, he was probably still better than half of the starting centers in the league during his final 2-3 seasons.
