Lakers to retire Shaq’s #34 next season.
Good to see the Buss family, who are always classy, and Shaq both taking the high road. No matter how you slice it, this it great for the NBA.
Lakers to retire Shaq’s 34 next season.
O’Neal will be the eighth player in Lakers franchise history to have his jersey retired, joining Wilt Chamberlain (No. 13), Elgin Baylor (No. 22), Gail Goodrich (No. 25), Magic Johnson (No. 32), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (No. 33), James Worthy (No. 42) and Jerry West (No. 44).
In the eight seasons he spent in Los Angeles from 1996-2004, the Lakers made the Finals four times, winning three championships, and O’Neal led the league in scoring while being named regular season MVP in 1999-00.
