Shaquille O’Neal is widely considered to be the most dominant player in NBA history, as well as one of the best centers of all time.

Shaq played in the NBA for 19 years, for six different teams. He is best known for playing for the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, and Miami Heat. In fact, he has four championships to his name. He has three Finals MVPs and is a 15-time all-star.

Shaq was known as one of the league’s most ferocious dunkers. His athleticism was out of this world. In the low block, his strength, power, footwork, and touch made him impossible to guard. Opposing players had to foul him extremely hard because they couldn’t stop Shaq. All of these factors combined to make Shaq the most dominant player ever.

Shaquille O’Neal has been a towering giant since his rookie days. Shaq eventually grew to be one of the most feared centers in NBA history, standing over 7 feet tall.
