After two decades of dominance, Shaquille O’Neal finally shelved his size 23 boots. Unless he pulls a Brett Favre, the Big Cactus is now officially retired from the Association.

Ever the trailblazer, Shaq tweeted his retirement before he informed the Celtics of his decision. ”i’m retiring,” he said, and linked to a 16-second video in which he says, ”We did it; 19 years, baby. Thank you very much. That’s why I’m telling you first: I’m about to retire. Love you. Talk to you soon.”

We asked TRU Nation to weigh in on the Big Retirement:

Zillz: “Hes the only mf i ever seen break a backboard.”

Rizoh: “About time. It’s hard to stay dominant with the knees of a 67-year old lady.”

Jaap: “He got 99 problems but free throws ain’t no longer one.”

Andrew: “Now he can focus on his true passion – being a law enforcement officer! NO SHAQ, I DO NOT WANT TO BUY DRUGS FROM YOU.”

Khal: “His true passion is Hoopz”

Sketch: “I actually bought “Shaq Diesel” when it first dropped. Am I still part of the TRU fam?”



Rizoh is the most powerful man in all the lands. He lives in Houston where he earned a BS in Nerf Herding. He's the founder of The Rap Up, the former editor of, and is in the Grammy-awaiting band Pervertable Disciples.
