It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since Shaquille O’Neal last played an NBA game, especially considering he’s still very active in the basketball world as an analyst for TNT.
The former MVP and four-time champion is getting ready to celebrate his 44th birthday this weekend and, as is becoming tradition around these parts, we’re honoring the man with a complete jersey rankings of the uniforms he wore as a pro.
Shaq became somewhat of a journeyman after his ugly split with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers, so there’s quite a lot of threads to work with in this list. In fact, Shaq almost had as many uniforms as he did nicknames during his playing days. So, without further ado, here are the best (and worst) jerseys worn by The Big DieselShaqFuDaddyAristotleShaqtusShamrock.
Please note: This list only consists of Shaq’s NBA uniforms. You won’t find his LSU, All-Star or Olympic jerseys on the list. That being said, these Blue Chips uniforms are a pretty dope honorable mention.
