Shaquille O’Neal spent 8 very productive seasons with the Lakers. He played in 514 games (509 starts) with the Lakers and he averaged 35.7 minutes, 27.0 points, 11.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.5 blocked shots per game. O’Neal finished #2 in blocked shots in Lakers’ history with 1,278 of them. He was also #5 in rebounds (6,090) and #7 in points scored (13,895) in Lakers’ history. O’Neal will without a doubt in my mind enter the Basketball Hall of Fame in a Lakers’ jersey as that is the team he had his most success with. O’Neal retired from the NBA yesterday. He played in 1,207 games (1,197 starts) in his NBA career and he averaged 34.7 minutes, 23.7 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.3 blocked shots per game.
