It's time to honor one of the all-time greats!
Shaquille O'Neal will be made a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame!
O'Neal won four NBA championships and an MVP award and is in the league's top 10 in career scoring.
O'Neal is one of four players to win three Finals MVP awards, joining Michael Jordan (6), Tim Duncan (3) and Magic Johnson (3). He was one vote shy in 1999-2000 of becoming the first unanimous MVP in NBA history as Iverson received the only other first-place vote.
As far as I'm concerned Shaq was the most dominant player I witnessed play in my lifetime. His combination of power and smooth footwork and shooting touch made him unstoppable. Teams were so defenseless against O'Neal that they enlisted the "Hack-or-Shaq" tool to slow him down. They basically loaded their bench with frontcourt players to foul him in games down to stretch, hoping he would miss free throws.
His impact on and off the court in culture was profound.
