Shaquille O'Neal is perhaps the most dominating center in professional basketball since Wilt Chamberlain. With his combination of enormous size and equal athletic talent, Shaq is a force to be reckoned with in a game where the biggest men are usually somewhat oafish. On the court, Shaq's leadership drove the Lakers
to three championships and raised the game of teamates like Kobe Bryant
. Off the court, Shaq is one of the finest men in sports, giving much of his time to charity. So with all this going it is amazing that he's found time to star in movies and put out rap albums. He's truly a Renaissance man for the modern age. Now plying his trade in Miami for the Heat, Shaq is as big a force as ever.
Ironically, Shaquille means "Little Warrior" in Arabic.
