WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) — Shaquille O’Neal’s career has come full circle, ending Friday where it began 19 years ago.

O’Neal has made his retirement official, reiterating what he revealed in a video posted to Twitter two days earlier that his NBA playing days are over. He made it official at his home in a suburb of Orlando, the city where his pro days began when the Magic made him the No. 1 pick in 1992.

As was fitting for a Shaq event, it was in a big room. He held the event in his personal gymnasium, with framed photos from all his teams — high school, college and six NBA franchises — hanging on one end, dozens of photos from his playing and acting days on the other.

And on the wall over where O’Neal sat was a Superman logo, which he essentially adopted as his own along the way.
