I don't really see Miami retiring his number. He had two really good seasons there, and then started to decline. I just don't see it happening. Obviously the Lakers will. Don't think the Magic will either.

Orlando, Miami and LA FOR SURE!!! No question. He was a HUGE part of each franchise.

Boston might, even though he only played one season there. Shaq's name would just look nice hanging up with Russell and Cowens and Bird and Parish.

Cavs and Suns, not so much. You see weird things, like Goldenstate has Wilt's number retired even though he only played 38 games in that city. Miami has Jordan's number retired even though he never played for their organization. So I imagine that having been such a huge name in the league, and being essentially the face of the league for a number of years, the Cavs and Suns may see fit to retire his number just because he ranks among the best to ever play the game.

But, I dont expect to see it retired anywhere save the three cities helped bring to the NBA finals.

I also dont expect them to retire his jersey this upcoming season. Shaq' knee may be better by the time the CBA stike (if there is one) is over, and he may see fit to go after one more ring. Stranger things have happened.

hang or retire ???, alot of temas could hang his number, I could only see the Lakers, and maybe heat retiring it.

Lakers only

Jordan did NOTHING for the Heat, so Shaq's jersey definitely should be retired there by their logic.
