Shaquille O'Neal is the giant, slam-dunking center for the Los Angeles Lakers. At seven foot one, the man known as Shaq is perhaps the most recognized athlete in the world, as well as one of the most respected and beloved. After being one of the most highly-touted players to ever come out of college, Shaq faced a great deal of pressure when the Orlando Magic made him the first overall pick of the 1992 NBA Draft. Despite this pressure, Shaq excelled and earned Rookie of the Year honors. After improving his game year by year, he signed with the Lakers in 1996. Within a few seasons, he helped propel L.A. on a run of three straight championships between 2000 and 2002. During this run, Shaq cemented his legacy as not only the best center of his era, but perhaps the most dominant big man to ever set foot on a basketball court.
