At the age of two, Shaquille ONeal mother married Phillip Harrison who was a sergeant in the U.S. Army. O’Neal was a part of the Boys and Girls Club of America while growing up and he credits the organization for helping to keep him off the streets.

The family moved from Newark and moved around to Germany and Texas. While still in high school, Shaquille ONeal started to gain attention for his basketball talent.

In his senior year, Shaquille ONeal led the San Antonio’s Robert G. Cole High School team to the state championship. Shaquille ONeal went on to Louisiana State University where he became a two-time SEC player of the year and a two-time All American.

He also received the Adolph Rupp’s Trophy for the NCAA men’s basketball player of the year in 1991.

Ѕhаquіllе О’Nеаl Career:

In 1992 O’Neal became the first overall pick for the Orlando Magic. A year later he was named the Rookie of the Year and voted an All Star-starter which had not been accomplished since Michael Jordan. In his second season, Shaq helped the Magic make their way to their first play-off series. The next year they made it to the finals, but lost to the Houston Rockets.

Ѕhаquіllе О’Nеаl was plagued by injury for a good deal of the 1995-96 season, though the Orlando Magic still finished the regular season with a winning record.

In the playoffs that year, O’Neal and the Magic won the first two rounds but were ultimately defeated by Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls.

In 1996, Ѕhаquіllе О’Nеаl was part of the men’s Olympic basketball team in Atlanta. That team went on to win the Olympic gold medal.

It was during the Olympics that O’Neal announced his plans to join the Los Angeles Lakers as tensions rose amongst his coach, teammates and local Orlando Media. The Lakers offered O’Neal a seven year $121 million deal.

This move paired Ѕhаquіllе О’Nеаl with a teenaged Kobe Bryant, bringing two of the game’s biggest names together on one team. However, while his first few years with the Lakers were promising, they failed to clinch a championship. Ѕhаquіllе О’Nеаl battled against injury and personnel changes until a change in leadership turned things around.

The arrival of former Chicago Bulls coach Phil Jackson in the 1999-00 season set the Lakers on a path that would make them a dominant force for years to come. Jackson challenged O’Neal and led him to step up his defensive game.

Shaquille and the Lakers won the NBA championship that year, and would go on to win the title the next two years in a row.
