If you’ve been watching the NBA you know about Shaquille O’Neal. This is a guy that would have been hard to miss. he’s been a great player, leading two teams to championships, and as part of the Lakers, probably got as much media exposure as any player in the NBA. While he hasn’t been dominant the last couple of seasons, mostly due to injury, his body of work over the years marks him as something special.
But if there’s one thing about Shaq that I will always remember, it’s this. At some point a member of the press made some less than flattering statements about him and Shaq replied “The man is an idiot. I-D-O-U-T. Idiot.” That’s priceless. We tip our hats to you Shaquille O’Neal. Thanks for all the memories, the astounding performances, and the unforgettable moments.
