O’NEAL CALLS IT A LARGE CAREER!!

Darren Kincaid - Sunday, June 05, 2011

Shaq O'NealHe was a prolific producer of rebounds and record albums. And nicknames, too, as if at 7-foot-1 and 350 pounds he was too big for the simple “Shaq” that made him an instantly recognizable, one-name star in all of his endeavors.

Shaquille O’Neal had more than 28,000 points and almost 4 million Twitter followers. He appeared in six NBA finals, three times as the MVP, and seven feature films, twice in a starring role.

A 15-time All-Star, four time champion and the 2000 NBA MVP, the 39-year-old O’Neal announced his retirement on Twitter o Wednesday after spending most of his 19th season on the Boston Celtics bench, in street clothes because of foot injuries.

Shaq was a prankster who gave himself a new nickname-or several- in each of his six NBA cities. He played in Orlando, LA, Miami, Phoenix, Cleveland, & Boston.
