Center - Shaquille O'Neal - Shaq was an unstoppable, powerful player, who's consider one of the most dominating players to step on an NBA hardwood.

During his prime with the Lakers, Shaq won three straight titles, earned the Finals MVP honors, and became one of the rare legends to win at least three titles in a row, which is fantastic accomplishment.
