if Shaquille O'Neal wins the MVP award this year in the playoffs it will be three straight years, Wilt never did that
Wilt Chamberlain pulled himself out of game 7 against the New York, with the game on the line, because he said he was hurt,
Shaquille O'Neal plays hurt all the time and never uses it as an excuse
I am not into who is the best of all-time topics but it seems Shaquille O'Neal certainly will prove a point when his career is over. Let's not forget he is only 30 years old.
Shaquille O'Neal shows that he is a leader and will gladly take the responsibility of putting a team on his shoulders. I understand a lot of people do not like them for whatever reasons but the fact remains -- he is an extraordinary player and the best is yet to come.
The best is yet to come? I think that Shaq is winding down. His toe will never get better and the Lakers are almost at the end of their run. They MAY 4-peat, but I seriously doubt it.
You have to understand that when Wilt played, basketball wasn't as popular as today. If he pulled himself out of a game, then I have no doubt that he was really hurt. Imagine the backlash if Shaq decided to sit out because of a toe injury.....
If we are talking about the best leaders then Shaq maybe higher, but overall skill and talent---- Chamberlain is the best center ever...
