Shaq Immortalized in Bronze
The self-proclaimed Most Dominant Ever returned to the site of his peak dominance, flanked by a cast of basketball royalty so large that a horde of handlers struggled to get everyone to squeeze into a single picture frame. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Phil Jackson, Kobe Bryant, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, James Worthy, Luke Walton, A.C. Green, Gary Payton, Derek Fisher, Robert Horry, Brian Shaw and more than a dozen other notable former Lakers assembled outside the Staples Center on Friday to honor Shaquille O’Neal, who teamed with Bryant to bring three consecutive championships to Southern California from 2000 to 2002.
Officially, the group of luminaries, and the hundreds of fans decked out in purple and gold, were there to witness the unveiling of a gigantic 1,500-pound statue that is suspended above the Staples Center walkway, not far from similar tributes to Abdul-Jabbar, West and Magic Johnson. Unofficially, everyone was glad to take a moment out from another discouraging Lakers campaign to reminisce on better days.
Shaquille O’Neal was a true forced on the court and it is always great to see such starts immortalized in bronze for future generations to enjoy plus reference.
