Shaquille O'Neals Jersey Retired in LA

Tuesday evening during halftime at the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks match-up 
Shaquille O'Neal's No. "34" jersey was retired.

O'Neal's number will hang in the Staples Centers rafters alongside Jerry West (44), Wilt Chamberlain (13), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (33), Magic Johnson (32), Elgin Baylor (22), James Worthy (42), Gail Goodrich (25) and Jamaal Wilkes(52).

Shaq played eight seasons for the Lakers from 1996-2004. 

However, eight years after playing with this team the Lakers traded O'Neal in 2004. 

The Lakers won three titles with the 7-foot-1 center in four NBA Finals appearances. 

Center court Shaq was along side his mother and six children as he accepted this honor and spoke.

"It's a dream come true. It's a blessing. I didn't do it by myself," O'Neal said in a press conference." I had a lot of help- great teammates, great organization, the Buss family [and] great leadership from Phil Jackson."

"CAN YOU DIG IT????' ......
Congrats to Shaq and his entire family.
