Happy 40th Birthday to Legendary Lakers Center Shaquille O’Neal

There have been some legendary players to wear the Lakers uniform throughout the decades, but there will never be another player quite like Shaquille O’Neal. The 7-foot center was literally and figuratively the biggest guy in the room, and had a personality that delighted the fans and the media.

However, O’Neal’s off-court behavior was nothing compared to his dominance on the floor. During his career O’Neal won four NBA championships, three of which were with the Los Angeles Lakers. O’Neal was also named NBA Finals Most Valuable Player during those three titles with the Lakers, and helped turn the Lakers into the first dynasty of the 21st century.

While O’Neal bounced around during the latter stages of his career, he will always be remembered as one of the most exciting players in the history of the Lakers.

In honor of the Diesel’s birthday, here’s a look at some of the most memorable Shaq quotes from his Hall of Fame career.
