At least in my lifetime, there has never been a more dominant center in the NBA. Straight out of LSU, Shaq was a nightmare for opposing defenses and just appeared bigger, stronger, and hungrier than anyone else. Diving for loose balls, going coast-to-coast, bringing down backboards, and of course…. entertaining, were all a part of his monster personality and monster skill set. SLAMonline’s own Ryne Nelson hooked ya’ll up with this video from Shaq’s rookie season many moons ago. YOU CAN’T STOP THE REIGN.
