Shaquille O’Neal is one of the greatest players to have ever played basketball. He was a 7-foot-1 inch, 325-pound center who overpowered and dominated most of the competition at his peak. Shaq was a truly unique player, and he enjoyed his life off the court as well. O’Neal released multiple studio rap albums in the 1990s, but he has shifted towards a career as a DJ in recent years.

Ever since his retirement as a player, Shaq has not disappeared from the eyes of NBA fans. He continues being an analyst at TNT’s ‘Inside the NBA’ TV show.
