Robataille? Really? I don't follow hockey much at all but I never thought he was on the level of these other athletes. Interesting.

Happy for the Big Shamrock. One of the best players of all time. In my top 10 and certainly one of the greatest Lakers'.
I grew up watching Shaq dominate the league when I was a kid.
Living in NY I've always had to argue and defend my Lakers. I remember when Yao Ming was considered "the next big thing" coming to America to play in the NBA. and most of my friends would try breaking my balls over it. Kept saying repeadetly Yao is going to take over and dominate. Shaq won't shine his shoes, etc. Etc. Time for him to step aside.
Yeah, no.
I was right when I told them they had another thing coming. Soon enough within a few short years it was obvious Yao was no Shaq. In fact, in my time watching basketball over the last 15-16 years, Shaq to this day is still the best PF/C I've seen (aside from Duncan) and I think it may stay that way for a long time.
He , along with Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Hakeem Olujouwon, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain I would consider to be the 5 best big men of all time.
