It was time. He wasn't a conrtibutor anymore. I think he'll land a good job in TV somewhere. He's a pretty entertaining dude.

Re: Shaquille O'Neal announces his retirement

No surprise there. He's had a great career and the time has come for him to move on. It may be a while before the game sees another big like him. Wish the big fellow well in his retirement.

Re: Shaquille O'Neal announces his retirement

I suspected he was gonna retire when the injury bug started getting him. Guy still came to play every single time, but he couldnt keep healthy.

One of the best to ever play the game. Hall of fame no doubt, and i'm sure he can get into TV, movies, etc, because of his personality...cool guy too.

Good luck Shaq, thanks for the memories!!

Re: Shaquille O'Neal announces his retirement

If he hadn't missed 8,000 foul shots, he could be in the discussion of greatest ever, at least in terms of scoring.

Re: Shaquille O'Neal announces his retirement

He should have retired after he won the championship in Miami. Been long overdue. Then again, if I had a guaranteed contract that paid me what he got paid, I'd kept playing too...lol

This might be the greatest retirement press conference I've ever seen

Re: Shaquille O'Neal announces his retirement

Also say what you want about Shaq but the guy had a great sense of humor.




Any guy that can laugh at himself like this is alright in my book.

I never saw that Popvich Hack-a-Shaq video before. That was hilarious.
