Lakers Retire Shaquille O’Neal’s Jersey
Shaquille O’Neal dominated the Staples Center court one more time Tuesday, in a halftime jersey retirement ceremony that perfectly mirrored his Lakers career.
It was booming. It was poignant. It was funny. It had thousands of fans chanting and cheering.
His jersey is being retired, of course, because O’Neal was about more than fun. (Kobe) Bryant may own Staples Center, but O’Neal built it by leading the team to three consecutive titles while being the Finals most valuable player in each of them.
