    Will Shaq have his number retired in three Buildings?

    Theres reason for him to get his number retired in :

    Lakers = lead them to 3 titles.
    Heat= Was key in their 1st title ever.
    Magic= Lead them to their first finals.

    for the moment the ONLY player that has that Honour is Wilt Chamberlain
    Warriors/Sixers/Lakers.

    So? will he?


    The list of players with their number retired in two buildings:

    Nate Thurmond ( Cavs and Warriors)
    Lanier ( Pistons and Bucks)
    Drexler ( blazers and Rockets)
    Moses Malone ( rockets and sixers)
    Dr J ( nets and Sixers)
    Kareem ( Bucks and Lakers)
    Earl Monroe ( Bullets and Knicks)
    Barkley ( sixers and suns)
    Big O ( Kings and Bucks)


    feasable Candidates to have it in two buildings:
    Aguirre ( Mavs and Pistons)
    archibald ( kings and celtics)
    Sikma ( Bucks and sonics)
    Chambers ( Suns and sonics)
    Maravich ( Jazz and Hawks)
    hornacek ( Jazz and Suns)
    B king ( Bulles and Knicks)
    j Wilkes ( Warriors and Lakers)
    garnett ( wolves and Celtics)
    Lebron ( Heat and Cavs)
    gasol ( grizz and Lakers)
    Nash ( Suns and Mavs)

    Well, he's going to get his Lakers jersey retired this season.


    He should get his jersey retired in MIami as he changed the culture of South Beach of starting the trend of superstars wanting to go there.



    And he was Orlando's first premier Franchise Player.


    PHX, CLE and BOS: no

    He talked 100x more **** about the Lakers organization when he was traded, currently talks **** about the Lakers new future franchise player (D12), and he's getting his jersey retired this April.

    He played most of his career there, tho. It would just look bad on the Lakers if they didn't. Besides, he was never the best player on the Heat.

    That's not the point, he changed the culture of that team. You think Miami would have won a championship if they never acquired Shaq?

    And do you think as a result of no championships, would LeBron and Bosh ever go there to join Wade?

    No, instead, Wade probably would have left Miami in the summer of 2010 to join wherever LeBron or Bosh would be.


    The fact is, Shaq changed that culture in Miami, guys like Toine, GP, Jason Williams, Posey etc all wanted to play for him, they (and Kapono) were the perfect complimentary shooters to surround a post-player like Shaq who was so good at passing out of double and triple teams.



    Wade was the best player, but having a guy like Shaq made making personnel decisions and supporting cast easy to orchestrate for Riles, and the perfect system was already in place there too. Shaq the post player, the shooters that complimented him, and then a stud of a perimeter player in Wade.

    LeBron & Wade probably would have gone to New York.

    Wade doesn't like the cold weather so why would he go to New York ? The only other place I could imagine Wade would leave for is Chicago which is his home town. Those 3 were coming to Miami regardless I think it's pretty unfair to give Shaq the credit for that

    Part of the reason LeBron went to South Beach I thought was because Pat Riley sold him on the rings.


    Now, what do you think is more enamoring, showing off a ring that you won 22 yrs prior in 1988 with the Lakers....

    Or a very recent one just 4 yrs prior with the Heat in 2006?
