this and what Cp said are all I'm saying dude cheated himself and us out of possibly the greatest player to ever walk the planet
thats a big deal to me
San Antonio Spurs: MCMXCIX, MMIII, MMV, MMVII, MMXIV
I Never Cried When _____ Died, But I Definitely Will When Hov Does
shaq has always had questionable work ethic but he still ended up being the best player in the league by far
getting surgery on company time though..
kareem had wilt, parish, moses malone, ralph sampson/hakeem and dave cowens
I feel this way too. Shaq will also have one of the most dominant peaks but his career does not live up to a lot of greats, and Kobe's body of work is much better than Shaq's.
Then again when you measure greats you have to steer clear of comparing perimeter players to big men because they are completely different as far as what they are capable of.
