He is prolly the biggest entertainer the game has ever seen. I'm glad he got co-MVP honors with Kobe. It's cool to see all the younger players respecting him and feeding him the ball.

I know Dwight is trying to take the flag of the whole colourful charismatic big man mantra...but there is only one Shaq and there always will be.

I am sure Shaq will never be far from the game, even if his playing days are nearing an end.

Shaq will weigh over 500 pounds when he done with the NBA, he can't even stay in shape while playing the game

I effing hate shaq. He is a cocky a-hole who wouldn't be half as successful as he is if the refs didn't give him special treatment...flame on.

Agree, He would be the most entertaining analyst/commentator whoever signs him will get some great ratings you could be watching the kings vs bobcats and id tune in to hear shaq.

I loved when he first joined Phoenix and dove into the crowds... then that time when he stopped just short of the Phoenix bench but everyone cleared and Shaq laughed and walked back to the game... that was hilarious.

Shaq would make a terrible analyst.

He should host his own game show instead.

Hahaha, the queens fan is crying. Shaq gets fouled almost everytime he gets the ball and it's NOT called.

Na, you'd watch it because it'd be in 4OT with the score tied at 27-27.

Yeah im ma miss him too. I mean a huge guy doin those funny stuff. Hall of fame bound for sure. Hell prolly be judging future dunk contests or something. Be good if him and Charles join the TnT crew. I just hope they dont fight each other over some differences in opinion.

Shaq doesn't get special treatment from the refs because he is just too big. Everytime he makes a move, it is either he gets hacked, carries the player with him (or gets trampled by him) or called for an offensive foul.

Yeah, I'll miss Shaq. He is certainly one of the most dominant players ever to play the game. His humor and wit (making nicknames) is sometimes overshadowed by some of his crazy antics in the past.

Everyone will miss Shaq. Hopefully (and most probably) he will stay somewhat in the limelight, continuing to do commercials and TV appearances.

He should join Barkley on TNT :up:
