After 19 seasons, Shaq retired today … via Twitter! Somebody please tell me no one else has quit their job via social network. Shaq, you the man for announcing one of life’s biggest decisions in the most casual way possible.
Shaq did his thing in the NBA though. He won four championships, one with Miami and three with the Lakers. You have to expect to see him in the Hall of Fame.
I was always a fan of Shaq, even when he played for the Lakers, and all through his crazy times in Miami. He had a few controversial stories rise about his life off the court within the last five years, but he’s still one of the greatest.
Good job Shaq. Your presence will be missed on the court.
