I was just looking at stats.. Shaq Averaged 23 points, 14 rebounds 3.5 blocks his first year in the league (92).. .that's crazy.. and he averaged 29, 13 and 3 in his second year.. All of his numbers are impressive. I remember how strong and fast he was.. The closest thing I've seen to that, in terms of impact is probably Lebron. But shaq took his expansion team to the finals right away.. 2nd year right?.. anyway.. I see the sports writers trying to blot him out but shaq is still the man.. He still deserves attention.. and his ego is not so big that he has to be the focus of the offense. I'd love to see him win a ring with Boston against the Lakers.. that would be a good note to retire on..
