The Big ___________ (insert your own moniker) has called it quits. Shaq will announce his retirement tomorrow from his home in Isleworth, FL. For those that are a little long in the tooth, Shaq was THE most dominate force that we've seen in years from the NBA. No, he didn't win the number of championships that many of us thought he would, but he changed the game and the league. Shaq started out in Orlando running the fast break (with Anfernee Hardaway, Nick Anderson, Dennis Scott, and Horace Grant) and smiling and he ended his career in Boston, on the sidelines and smiling. The one thing that can be said, is that even through some of the good (Championships with LA) and the bad (Kazaam!!!, Kobe and D-Wade) we've all enjoyed each moment because of the smiling giant. Shaq will forever go down in history as one of the most dominate, but he'll also go down as one of the most loved.
From the crew here at MeltingPotThoughts, good luck on the next part of your journey.
