There have been many physically large men in the NBA. Wilt Chamberlain, Hakeem Olajuwon and Bill Russell are names that people often throw out there as some of the greatest large athletes of all time.
But there is another sizable athlete who is often mentioned.
Shaquille O’Neal was dominant on the court from the time he got drafted by the Orlando Magic. He would finish his career with four titles and three NBA MVP recognitions among many other awards. On November 11, 1992, O’Neal would make his NBA debut for the Magic, taking on the Miami Heat and winning 110-100 as he scored 12 points, gathered 18 rebounds and blocked three shots.
