Ibn Notes: Shaquille O'Neal is a physical anomaly, a freak of nature. At 7-foot-2 and 350+ lbs. Quick as a small forward while as powerful as his imposing body looks. Slam after Dunk after Slam after Dunk, Shaq has since evolved his game to include turnaround jumpers and hookshots, all the while carving himself as one of the best centers to have ever played the game. It was, and is still, unfair to compare any other center to Shaquille O’Neal, it is just that unfair, to be so big and powerful yet to be so quick and agile - Just ask Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, Dikembe Mutombo, Arvydas Sabonis, Alonzo Mourning, Rik Smits, and Vlade Divac. And if they have nothing to say about Shaq, I am pretty certain Shaq himself would have something to comment. Maybe the most imposing pivot player ever, Shaq is (mostly) friendly off the court and definitely media-savvy. Always good for a funny or controversial quote or giving himself nicknames, Shaq has endeared himself to the media as a guy with a big heart and smile.
