At halftime of last night’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks at Staples Center, Shaquille O’Neal’s No. 34 jersey was retired to the rafters amongst the other great players to strap on the purple and gold for the organization.
According to Bleacher Report, there was a funny video tribute, a recorded speech by his former teammate and foe Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson speech, and “We Want Phil” chants by the Lakers faithful. Shaq, had his family in attendance but there was no sign of Hoopz.
