NBA TV is currently celebrating Shaq Week in honor of the most dominant big man to ever play the game, Shaquille O'Neal.
During his heyday, calling The Diesel a freak of nature is an understatement. If you think LeBron James' built is monstrous compared with his contemporaries', imagine how Shaq sowed fear into the hearts of many when all seven feet, 300 pounds of him entered the NBA and eventually started putting on the pounds.
Case in point: NBA on TNT colleague Charles Barkley, upon first seeing the Big Aristotle, even had this anecdote:
"I played in the NBA for sixteen years. Shaquille O'Neal is the only guy I ever said,
'Man, that's a big dude.' He's a big dude."
To further illustrate the sheer domination that the real Superman epitomized during his time in the league, FHM compiled video proof of Shaq's imposing presence.
He became the personification of the best way to combat prolific shot-blockers: dunking the hell out of them.
Shaq's power has always been attributed to his size, but what made him more unstoppable was the way he ran the floor and his dexterity with the ball.
He bulldozed his way into the upper echelon of NBA greats by—in true Shaq fashion—embarrassing even his fellow legends.
Last, name any other basketball player who destroyed rims and backboards like they were just bought from Little Tikes.
Never change, Shaq Daddy.
