After 19 seasons in the NBA, Shaquille O’Neal has decided to hang it up for good.

Mark Madsen who was Shaq’s teammate in Los Angeles, decided to share some Shaq moments on his personal blog. “When I think of Shaquille I think about so many things and I wanted to share my top ten Shaq Stories from everything I know about him.” Madsen said.

In the top ten list Madsen goes on to tell stories about wrestling with Shaq in the locker room before a game, Shaq comparing himself to the Pythagorean Theorem, Shaq buying every player on the training camp roster a new Rolex watch, and many other fun stories that give fans a inside look of who O’Neal was as a teammate and a person.

Madsen finishes his blog saying, “Shaquille O’Neal gave the league, players, teammates and fans 19 years of great memories.”

    I saw a news cast once when shaq was at a community function in L.A. (i think) and at the end of it all was going to raffle a ticket for a lucky kid to win a bike (probably the function’s idea).  At the end when it was all over you can see the camera looking and hearing a bunch of crying, sad kids and shaq gets the mic and says..”everyone hold your ticket.  bring your ticket and you will also get a bike”.  No doubt it was coming out of his pocket. I seen and read alot of things shaq did but I haven’t heard anything Kobe has done.  Not hating on kobe, he is probably doing it on the down-low but still.  Sure wish Kobe would be a bit more community friendly.
