There's not much left to be said about Shaquille O'Neal that hasn't already been mentioned.
The big man is now a member of the Hall of Fame and will go down in history as one of the greatest players to ever grace the hardwood.
He owes a lot of his success to Phil Jackson, a man who coached Shaq and Kobe Bryant to an incredible three-peat from 2000 to 2002.
As the Big Aristotle celebrates an incredible career, the former Lakers head coach posted a special message to his former player on the Players' Tribune.
It read: "We made plans to meet at a restaurant to say our final goodbyes. Shaq was more interested in my next year than his own — always a team player in the most unusual ways. He went on to win a championship in Miami. I was happy for him. But he has chosen to go into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a Laker, which is fitting.
"It was a very interesting and entertaining five years we had together in Los Angeles. For all his bravado and bigness, he was a team player first. He knew how to make his teammates better players. He kept it real — and really fun."
