EndScore Report: Goodbye, Shaquille O’Neal

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Editorial, NBA, News,

Shaquille O'Neal retires and EndScore Report says goodbye.In this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris bid farewell to one of the most dominating big men that ever played in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq left an indelible mark on the Association and will be remembered as one of the more entertaining and humorous players ever. His four championships - three with the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant, as well as the one with the Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade - gives His Shaqness the credibility to be mentioned with greats such as Bill Russell and Hakeem Olajuwon. However, for my money, I'd take Wilt Chamberlain as the most dominating force in the middle. Anyway, give our goodbyes to Shaq a listen!

Shaquille O’Neal hangs up his kicks and retires

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, News,

Shaquille O'Neal retiresShaquille O'Neal, one of the most dominant big men to ever play in the NBA has called it a career, announcing his retirement via video. Shaq was a larger than life personality that transcended the world of basketball, becoming a loveable character that appeared in movies, hip hop videos, and all over the mainstream. However, he wasn't all fun and games as he led the Los Angeles Lakers, along with Kobe Bryant, to three consecutive NBA titles, as well as the Miami Heat, playing the role of second fiddle to Dwyane Wade. As a rookie, he became famous for tearing down backboards and the legend of Shaq grew exponentially. The NBA loses a magnificent player who will surely star on another stage.

Kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett must be talking about offseason activitiesIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris look at what the two storied NBA franchises, the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, could possibly do now that both are out of the NBA Playoffs.

A lot of it could depend on the head coach selection. Is there still another run for the Big Three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen? We break down our thoughts HERE!
