Happy 41st birthday, Shaquille O’Neal

Kelly Dwyer

Shaquille O’Neal turns 41 today. He played over 41,000 NBA minutes and committed over 4100 fouls in his NBA career, two completely relevant stats. At his peak, he may have been the most dominant center of all time – considering the competition and increased possessions of those who came before him -- he was on Twitter before just about all of us, and he is still, um, evolving as a presence on NBA broadcasts.

We at Ball Don’t Lie wish the big fella the very best, and we hope his leisurely drive to a 4:30 dinner in his silver Buick is a fun one.
