With the Lakers set to retire Shaq’s Number 34 tonight, let’s take a trip down memory lane nd celebrate 8 great moments of the Big Aristotle’s Laker career – one for each year Wilt Chaimberneezy spent in Purple and Gold.

Nobody rubs it in like Shaq. It’s safe to say we all know the big fella’s name(s)!

Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap over Trail Blazers with a single bound…

Look up in the sky, its a bird, its a plane, its…SHAQ

Laying the beat for the greatest dance of all time.

Defensive player of the year? Rag doll to the Diesel.

This was true during the threepeat…

Unfortunately, it turned into “The more I eat, the more bigger I get. And the more bigger I get, the more games I miss and the more money I want.”

Shaq toyed with the Nets, on route to his third straight finals MVP. Bring out the brooms, the Diesel is cleaning house.

The first championship since 1988…and the future was so bright. It was the culmination of Shaq’s Superman season -one of the greatest individual seasons of all time.

“Get a look at the dynasty, this is the next one!”

Thanks for the memories, Shaq.
