He should be in the HOF by virtue of that. He was a vital piece of all 7 championships.

That, his playoff three point shooting, and clutch shooting in the regular season and playoffs justify a spot IMO.

In yesterday's win (16 minutes):

9 points, 2 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 steals, 2 blocks, 4 turnovers, 6 fouls.  More fouls and turnovers than rebounds.

Will be interesting to see how they use him when Perkins comes back.

After missing about half the season due to injury, Snack returned and lasted all of five minutes before limping to the locker room.

I was watching the game and he is just at the end of the road now. It is kinda sad.  Undecided With that said, i will never ever come close to make as much money as Snack O'neal made in his career.

It is kinda sad.  I hope he retires at the end of the season.  He got his rings.  He was one of the most dominant players in NBA history.  But his time is over.  He never worked hard enough and took care of himself well enough to play late into his 30s and early 40s.

The first thing that ran through my mind was when he first signed with Reebok and you saw his shoe everywhere. And now, i just see a old tired and Broken down Shaq.  Undecided I mean every athlete wants to go hard forever, but his time is over. You could see Shaw hobbling and you can see the end coming. I think Shaq signed a two year deal, but i kinda hope that he hangs it up and says it was a great career.

Shaq is like a punch drunk boxer, he will think he still has it, his body is broken down, its pretty pathetic to sit out 3/4 of the regular season then jump on garnett, pierce and allens backs and TRY win a ring, he needs to be forced to retire.

He looked horrible trying to run up and down the floor in game 3. It's really sad to watch. He should have retired a couple of years ago. He looks so fat and out of shape, too.

Aw shucks.  How the heck am I supposed to ridicule him if he isn't playing?   Undecided 

He had a great career.  It was time to go.  He was the most dominant big man I've ever seen in the NBA.

Shaq announces retirement on web
By Jackie MacMullan
ESPNBoston.com

ORLANDO, Fla. -- 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.

End Of An Era

O'Neal Shaquille O'Neal announced on Wednesday that after 19 seasons and four championship rings he's calling it quits. Here's a look back at his career:

  15-time NBA All-Star
  28,596 career points (5th all-time)
  2000 NBA MVP
  3-time NBA Finals MVP (2000-02)
  1993 NBA Rookie of the Year
  Notable nicknames: The Diesel, Shaq Fu, Superman, The Big Daddy, The Big Shaqtus, The Big Shamrock
  13 seasons with 20 PPG and 10 RPG (most in NBA)
  5,250 postseason points (4th all-time in NBA)
  216 postseason game played (3rd in all-time in NBA)

O'Neal, 39, announced his retirement Wednesday using the new social media tool Tout, a real-time video messaging service to announce to fans: "We did it. Nineteen years baby. I want to thank you very much, that's why I'm telling you first, I'm about to retire. Love you, talk to you soon."

"Once a businesman, always a businessman," O'Neal said with a smile later on Wednesday. "I am the emperor of the social media network."

O'Neal said he wasn't prepared yet to reminisce about his long and prolific career, which produced three championships with the Lakers and one with the Heat. "Let's save that for the press conference on Friday," said O'Neal, who will hold that media event at his Isleworth home.

Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss says that O'Neal has not notified the team of his plans.

"Shout out to @SHAQ on the hall of fame career. One of a kind player," Celtics teammate Rajon Rondo tweeted Wednesday.

O'Neal retires fifth all-time with 28,596 points, 12th with 13,099 rebounds and second only to Artis Gilmore among players with more than 2,000 baskets with a .582 field goal percentage.

"I'm a little bit sad," said Pat Riley, the Heat president who was also the coach when O'Neal won a title in Miami. "It's the end of an absolute 20-year career. Great, great player. ... The league's going to miss Shaq. I'm sure Shaq will do something big and beyond."

LeBron James tweeted: "What a career for Shaq Diesel!! The most dominating force to ever play the game. Great person to be around as well. Comedy all the time!!"

O'Neal signed a two-year contract with the Boston Celtics last summer but a persistent Achilles injury will prevent him from fulfilling the terms of the deal. O'Neal first injured his right Achilles on Christmas Day and was able to play only in two of the final 35 games of the regular season.

On April 3 against Detroit, O'Neal returned to the court after a two-month absence and scored six points in a spirited 5 minutes and 29 seconds before coming up lame and limping off the floor. Although his injury was listed as a strained calf, O'Neal said it was the Achilles flaring up again.

"I felt like someone had shot me in the back of my leg," he said.

O'Neal did not play again in the regular season. He sat out the New York Knicks playoff series then tried to return in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against his old team, the Miami Heat. O'Neal logged 8 minutes in the 97-81 victory but woke up in considerable pain the next morning. His final game was two days later, when he toiled for three minutes of Game 4 before Celtics coach Doc Rivers pulled him for good.

In the final weeks of the the playoffs, O'Neal, over the objections of team physician Brian McKeon, had "more than five" cortisone shots in his Achilles in an attempt to play against the Heat.

"Doc (McKeon) kept telling me, 'No, no,' but I wanted to play so badly," O'Neal said. "My feeling was, 'If it ruptures, it ruptures.' The Celtics were so good to me I wanted to do everything I could to get back on the court for them."

Throughout his time on the sideline, O'Neal said, he continued to do rehab as well as work on the treadmill and the exercise bike. He swam each evening at the Thoreau Club in Concord and shot a number of late-night free throws in at the Lincoln-Sudbury High School gymnasium across the street from his rented Sudbury home. He lost 35 pounds and was "feeling great everywhere except for that one little spot behind my heel."

O'Neal said McKeon recommended surgery that would "clean up" the area around the Achilles, but O'Neal said the recovery time would be close to nine months.

"I really, really thought about coming back," he said, "but this Achilles is very damaged and if I had it done the recovery would be so long we'd have same outcome as this last year -- everyone sitting around and waiting for me.

"I didn't want to let people down two years in a row. I didn't want to hold Boston hostage again.

"I'm letting everybody know now so Danny (Ainge) and the organization can try to get younger talent. I would love to come back, but they say once the Achilles is damaged it's never the same. I don't want to take that chance."

O'Neal said his final months in Boston included some of the darkest days of his career because "I just hated to let the city of Boston down. I really grew to love the place. Everyone was so welcoming to me and treated me so great. They believed in me and they took care of me, especially the great people of Sudbury. I love that town."

What They're Saying About Shaq

Shaquille O'Neal's colleagues chimed in after hearing about his retirement, remembering Diesel's best moments and wishing him luck for the future. More

O'Neal also had effusive praise for Rivers, whom, he said, was "one of the best I ever played for."

"I thought Doc was fabulous," O'Neal said. "He stressed 'team' all the time, never wavered on that. He kept everyone together. He's an amazing coach. I want to congratulate him on his five years (extension).

"He deserves it. He loves the organization, loves the players, and we all love him back."

O'Neal is acutely aware the Celtics posted a record of 21-4 when he was able to play 20 or more minutes this season. The chemistry he shared with the Big Three (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rondo, he said, will be an enduring memory, leaving him to wonder what would have happened had he stayed healthy.

"We were supposed to win this year but 'supposed' doesn't count," he said. "The path was there for us. All the so-called super powers were gone -- L.A., San Antonio. I really feel if I was on the court we would have done it, but I don't believe in 'ifs.' "

O'Neal will be remembered as one of the most dominant, recognizable and controversial figures in the game, whose body of work included rap records, movies, a lengthy business portfolio and an even lengthier history of philanthropic deeds.

"I tried to make people happy," O'Neal said, "and I tried to have fun. I think I did both."

O'Neal was a franchise-saver when the Orlando Magic made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 1992 draft. He took them from the lottery to the playoffs in two years, and then led them to the NBA Finals in his third year before they were swept by the Houston Rockets.

O'Neal then signed with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1996 and had his greatest success there, winning three titles alongside Kobe Bryant and coach Phil Jackson. But amid tension between O'Neal and Bryant over credit for the team's success, O'Neal was traded to the Heat in the summer of 2004, fresh off a loss to the Detroit Pistons in the Finals.

After 3 years in Miami, a tenure that included his fourth NBA championship, O'Neal became a veteran-for-hire, moving to Phoenix and then Cleveland and finally Boston. But he couldn't deliver another title for Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire with the Suns, with James with the Cavaliers or with the Celtics' Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.

"I think Shaq was the most dominant big man of his era. He changed the game," former Lakers teammate Brian Shaw told ESPNLosAngeles.com's Arash Markazi.

He added: "The amazing thing about him was with somebody of his size, that he was as nimble as he was. He could dance and run and do anything physically that somebody who was 5-10 could do. That's unheard of for a man his size. I don't know if we'll ever see that again. "

2nd most dominant center to ever play behind Wilt Chamberlain, in my opinion.


He would've stayed highly productive as he got older if he would've dedicated himself to staying in shape and working on being at least a 65% free throw shooter. You can't rely on playing yourself into shape once you've hit a certain age in your career. That's why he became so vulnerable to injury as he entered his mid 30's.

He's going to get so fucking fat while in retirement.

True, but retirement will put him well over the 400 pound mark. He was already talking about looking forward to eating some sausage and biscuits after his press conference.
