Shaquille O'Neal is retiring from basketball.
After 19 years in the NBA, the Diesel made the announcement on a video he posted through his Twitter page. The ginormous center said the following:
"We did it. Nineteen years baby. I want to thank you very much, that's why I'm telling you first, I'm about to retire. Thank you, talk to you soon."
Shaq won three titles with the Lakers and another with the Heat. He began his career with the Magic and also played with the Cavs, Suns and Celtics.
His sense of humor and personality have become as gregarious as O'Neal's physical presence, earning him legions of fans on Twitter and beyond.
O'Neal retires with the highest field goal percentage all-time, the seventh-most points, a lot of missed free throws and one computer hacking scandal.
