He can't fit in just one thread...
someone's gotta make a part 2
But seriously congrats to the Diesel for his 19 seasons of NBA and shattering backboards, missing free throws, dunking on everyone (including his teammates), cussing on live television, having fun with the media, and missing more free throws.
There will be no other NBA player who plays Scrabble the way he does, looks as dumbfounded (younger days) as he did, and be as funny nor as dominant as the Diesel.
He will be missed and I hope after a little while, he becomes Dr. O'neal, as he'd mentioned in his retirement conference.
