-- Shaquille O'Neal, the man with four rings, 28,596 career points and scores of nicknames, has finally decided to call it quits, ending one of the most colorful careers in NBA history that will surely culminate with a Hall of Fame induction.


Shaq retires after 19 years in the NBA. Good luck big fella. Wonder what he'll do next while he waits for his hall of fame induction.

Also awesome of him to announce it on Twitter to his followers (fans) first.

Was always a big fan of his. Seems like a guy who can flatten you but would much prefer to hang out and have a good time.

Best Shaq quote, after having a terrible game-

"I played like Eric Dampier"

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

You don't hear that much about 'characters' in sports nowadays. So many athletes take themselves way too serious. O'Neil , in his prime was a force, but he loved to have fun.

Wish him all the best
