I know this is one of a million tributes to the big homie Shaq as he enters the world of retirement. Let’s keep it real, his persona is bigger than just basketball, but we cannot forget what the man has accomplished on the court. Shaq has 13 seasons of 20 points and 10 rebounds. That’s almost unheard of. Plus in our lifetime we have never seen a man with his ability at his size be so lethal for so many years. Guys that are 7 foot tall and 320 pounds don’t usually hold up like the Diesel did in his career. From age 22 to about 32 there has never been a more unstoppable force in the game.
The big Nostradomis could run, jump, and leap better than the best.
The makers of basketball goals had to change the compression rate of the basket because of the big fella. Shaq dominated everyone he played against most of his career. He only had one instance where he was taken to school. He ran into an unstoppable force in Hakeem Olajuwon. The Dream was in his prime and his footwork was second to none as he faced the Big Aristotle.
However that was the last time Hakeem would hold the edge. Shaq made Hakeem pay for that as he got a little older and Shaq got more seasoned.
But Shaq was more than just a hooper. The man had the complete package. He could entertain. He’s done everything from movies to rapping. From TV comedy specials to TV series there will certainly never be a more entertaining big man that the Big Shamrock. You have to give it to the big fella, he knows he has skills, man!
