If the Lakers had a statue for every legendary player there would be no room, doubt shaq gets one. I think Kobe will though.

i think its ludicrous and appalling that anybody would say Shaq shouldnt get a statue. In the history of the NBA only 5 teams have accomplished a 3peat,
1952–54 Minneapolis Lakers, 1959–66 Boston Celtics (Eight Championships), 1991–93 Chicago Bulls, 1996–98 Chicago Bulls, 2000–02 Los Angeles Lakers

Of those teams look at the teams best players

1952–54 Minneapolis Lakers - George Mikan - Has a statue at Target Center

1959-66 Boston Celtics - Bill Russell - Getting a statue next year (http://radioboston.wbur.org/2012/05/...russell-statue)

1991-93 & 96-98 Bulls - Jordan - Has a statue at United Center

Now i think its pretty stupid that somebody would argue against Shaq having a statue. If Kobe was going to get one then i think Shaq deserves to be in there before Kobe does, Laker fans use Kobes championships as their arguments substance all the time so therefore its obvious championships are what they value most, no? So therefore the players who as the leader win championships should be remember and therefore Shaq 3> has a better case than Kobe 2. Three-peats are ridiculous impressive, they never happen, it takes special players to win them as you can see by the small list ( Mikan,Russell,Jordan,Shaq)


EDIT: Not saying that Kobe dosnt deserve one BTW. Just that Shaq deserves it more.

Nice expansion.

Quote:
You don't think winning three consecutive titles and having arguably the most dominant peak ever, best Finals performances ever in a Lakers uniform merits consideration? LAL got his entire peak from 1998-03. Faced elimination seven times over that span while Shaq dropped 33/13/3 on 56% FG in those games. With a 59% TS in case anybody's interested. Averaged 30/15/3 over the 58-game playoff three-peat; 38/17/3 in 2000 Finals, 33/16/5 in 2001 Finals, 36/12/3 in 2002 Finals. Was the centerpiece and essential to a 67-win season and 15-1 postseason (along with Kobe).

That's not legendary?

Tell that to the Seattle Supersonics, ask them how their recent trip to the NBA finals went.

It's not a numbers game. It's a popularity thing. Titles have nothing to do with, numbers have nothing to do with it. Who gets a statue is based on popularity with the fans and with the ownership of the Lakers. Shaw burned a lot of ground when he left LA, threw a lot of very important people under the bus including Buss and Mitch. He'll be lucky if he gets his jersey retired before Kobe.
