We Reminisce: Shaq Selected No. 1 Overall In The 1992 NBA Draft

I’m sure you’ll be reading and seeing a lot about Shaquille O’Neal over the next few days, but it’s time to take it back for a minute to the moment it all started: June 24, 1992. I wonder if Craig Sager even remembers this…



Where does Shaq rank all-time?

    lol at “Refine offensive game”…technically, not a whole lot changed in that department over the course of his career

    Oh shit. I could barely remember when Craig Sager was capable of wearing something so ‘subdued’ back then…

    Shaq is what we always say: The most dominant player to ever play the game. I know there are plenty of Shaq jokes now (remember, dude is ’bout 40), but not many jokes from ’92-2006 (except free throws, but that’s doesn’t matter now…).

    Shaq always had a good attiude about the game and the people associated with it. He always spoke his mind and had a fun time doing it. Def appreciated seeing him in college to having a long lasting NBA career.
    Def, peep Craig Sager and his “modest” suit back then. He’s come a long way baby, lol!
