Throughout Wednesday, tributes to Shaquille O’Neal have poured in from the likes of NBA commissioner David Stern after the center announced his retirement on Twitter. The Los Angeles Lakers will honor O’Neal in the most visible way possible: by retiring his No. 34 jersey.
He was a prolific producer of rebounds and record albums. And nicknames, too, as if at 7-foot-1 and 350 pounds he was too big for the simple “Shaq” that made him an instantly recognizable, one-name star in all of his endeavors.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers says Shaquille O’Neal’s foot is still bothering him, pushing back his return to Boston’s lineup.
The NBA finals seemed to go on forever last summer, stretching through seven games over two weeks until the exhausted Los Angeles Lakers finally edged the injury-depleted Boston Celtics with their last gasp in the final quarter.
