    ... and to think, some people wanted him to retire pre-Space Jam.

    Does this mean we're gonna get a Shaq-fu movie starring Bettie White and Brian Wilson?

    Unless that is a Jordan joke, Shaq wasn't in Space Jam. He was at home, green egg and hamming it.
    Space Jam (1996) - Full cast and crew

    I hope he goes back to music, and does a duet with Shakira. Shaq feat. Shakira, performing Bounce These Balls.

    Whatever it was called, it was a piece of crap. My Aunt and I went to go see "Carrington" starring Jonathan Pryce(of Evita fame) and Emma Thompson instead.

    Here's the trailer: YouTube - ‪Carrington trailer‬‏

    Shout out to Shaq for an awesome career. One of if not the most dominating player in the past 20 years (besides Jordan) and one of the NBAs greatest personalities. Joke all you want about his movies and music (which was kinda of decent), but you can't deny his impact on the game. Shaqtastic, 29 points!

    Shaq's a big MF. It'll be wierd without him, the dude had an epic O & D.

    Atleast the team will get more overall free throw points now, cough cough
