Easily the most dominate player of this generation, the "Man of Steel" could not be stopped. Nothing worked. Not Hack-A-Shaq, not triple-teams...nothing. He was an underrated passer that made those around him better and pushed young guards like Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade to the limit. Standing at a mammoth 7'1" and 330 lbs, Shaq dominated like many players before him, but no one has ever came along with that much power and quickness at that size. Players bounced off of him like bullets off of the Hulk. He was called for an offensive foul whenever he made a post move and he protected the rim like a savage beast. We might see another Kobe before we see another Shaq.
