Shaq spent 8 years in the Lakers, of which, 3 of them he won the NBA Championship. Together with the Lakers all time player, Kobe Bryant, Shaq went on to win 3 straight titles from 2000 to 2002. Shaq was able to be free and dominate the paint with Kobe out along the perimeter handling some of the scoring load. Shaq was unstoppable in the paint. He averaged 27.8 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game during the three seasons Lakers won their 3-peat. There was almost no way anyone could stop this monster in the paint. It was often said that the only thing that could stop Shaq was time.
After 8 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, Shaq left for the Miami Heats. Shaq continued being a dominant force in the paint and still managed to put up some good numbers. Although his time in Miami is nothing compared to his prime days with the Lakers, he was still able to lead the Heats to their first ever title in 2006 with Dwayne Wade.
Shaq is by far one of the strongest and most dominant players in the NBA history. In his rookie season with the Orlando Magic, Shaq got the ball in the paint, took a dribble and slammed it in. The entire stadium was stunned. They have never seen a player dunking the ball with such force till he brought down the entire backboard. That was the beginning of Shaq’s dominance in the league. He went on to be one of the greatest Centers in NBA history.
