Shaquille O’neal will finish with more than 28,000 points , regular season MVP, 3 finals MVP’s and will undoubtedly go down as one of the most dominant centers to ever play the game. Shaq revolutionized the center position when he entered the league in 1992 and has entertained fans on and off the court ever since then. The future Hall of Famer will certainly be missed.
