Shaquille O’Neal, who stands 7’1″ tall and weighs in at 355 pounds, was the oldest active player in the NBA and has most recently played for the Boston Celtics. He is one of the funniest guys around according to his teammates and will be missed.

Shaq announced his retirement via Twitter with this video:

The LA Times summed up his amazing career making it easy to see why he’s had such a long run in the NBA:

The former No. 1 overall draft pick of the Orlando Magic in 1992 center averaged 23.7 points and 10.9 rebounds in his career but played sparingly in his final season with the Boston Celtics. O’Neal was a 15-time All-Star, four-time NBA champion — three with the Lakers, one with Miami — and the 1999-2000 MVP. He is considered one of the most dominant players to have played the game.

Wow! You’ll be missed, Shaq!
