One of the biggest human beings to ever walk this earth was also one of the most talented athletes that the world has ever seen.

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Shaquille O’Neal—Shaq—spent a lot of his time as a youth at the Boys and Girls Club in Newark. He would go to play basketball when he got bored because it “gave him something to do.” As he got older, he realized that he could really be a special player on the basketball court. His family would move down to Texas due to his Step=father’s military career, and Shaq would attend Robert G. Cole High School in San Antonio. He would go on to lead his team to a 68-1 record over two years as well as win a Texas state title his senior year.

For his next steps, Shaq decided to attend Louisiana State University—LSU—where he would become a two time all American, as well as receiving the collegiate player of the year award in 1991. Following his sophomore year, he decided to make the transition to the NBA, where he would be drafted number 1 overall by the Orlando Magic.

O’Neal would start off his career just as he finished his college career, by winning the 1993 rookie of the year award and was the first rookie all-star voted to start the game since Michael Jordan. Before his time with the Magic was done, he would go on to be the league’s leading scorer in the 1994-1995 season, averaging just under 30 points per game, while also making it to the NBA Finals.

Following his time with the Magic, Shaw signed with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency in the summer of 1996 while also being selected to the USA Olympic team. During his time with the Lakers, he would lead them to three consecutive championships alongside Kobe Bryant, while also winning the League MVP trophy in the 1999-2000 season.

In 2004 Shaq was traded to the Miami Heat. When he arrived he promised the city of Miami that he would deliver them a title. That he did. In the 2005-2006 season, the Miami Heat defeated the Dallas Mavericks while averaging a double-double for the series.

O’Neal finished his career as arguably the most dominant big man in the league. He racked up countless accolades during his career which include being a four-time NBA Champion, a three-time finals MVP, an MVP award, and 15-time all-star, as well as being a member of the NBA 50th anniversary team.
