There is a lot that can be criticized about Shaquille O’Neal
in terms of his desire to play at his top capacity, but it cannot be disputed that even an unmotivated Shaq was among the best of his day. It was not just his skill, but his immense size. When motivated, he was unstoppable, and he is a four time NBA Champion and former League MVP (not to mention a three time NBA Finals MVP). A 15 (yes 15) time All Star, Shaq may be have deserved some of the criticism he got, but is there any real doubt that this man belongs in the Hall of Fame? He should easily enter on the first ballot.
