lol again with the WILT WOULD HOUSE SHAQ bullshat.

The other night when I watched Shaq's jersey get retired, those clips they showed of him... I remembered... how ****ing big that dude is. It's ridiculous how gigantic he was.

Like Kobe said dude is like the biggest athletic beast in NBA history. So, yeah you'd probably take him first if they were all coming out of college.

But if people could tell careers, other guys would have arguments. However, I think he would still be near the top because he could be plugged into a lot of other situations and still be successful. We never saw Shaq without a great wing... so we don't know how he'd play.

Not a single person if we talking bout going on talent. Knowing his career - there are a good few.

Default Re: Who would you draft over Shaq?

there are 10+ players easily that i would take over that lazy slob.

Could Shaq win a title as DA MAN without having another top 3 player in the league beside him?

Gimme MJ, Hakeem, KAJ, Tim Duncan, Magic, Bird, Kobe, Lebron, Wilt, all day over Shaq

I think Shaq could have been picked over anyone on potential, but his work ethic is no where near these 5, so they would all get the nod over Shaq:

Michael Jordan
Larry Bird
Magic Johnson
Kareem Abdul Jabbar
Wilt Chamberlain

Shaq is the only guy Wilt went and got interviews to say Shaq had the opportunity to be better than Wilt himself. The ONLY guy he remotely said that about.
I dunno what would happen if '72 Wilt met up against 2001 Shaq except there WOULD be an earthquake in that town!!
Wilt from his Sixers days though...dude was just so fast, agile, totally ferocious and by far that vertical he had. It would be the dream of dreams to see them go after it

There is no possible way that I would draft Magic or Bird over Shaq.

Not Jordan either unless we're talking about hindsight (in which case this becomes just "who's better than Shaq" thread )

Kareem, Hakeem. Wilt, depending on era. That's it.

I'd take ANYONE else from anyone's top 10 list over Shaq (assuming the top 10 list is relatively "normal," and not some weird personal list).

Assuming I have all players for the duration of their careers, and my goal is to win, I'll take the players that I think were better than Shaq over Shaq : Russell, Jordan, Magic, Wilt, Kareem, Bird

Shaq was dominant for 10 years, and then he was just a lard ass.

Nice list. Hypothetically speaking, if Bird never had back problems, I would take him over Shaq too.
