Unquestionably one of the greatest and most dominant players in the history of the NBA, Shaquille O’Neal’s services have been sought out by a number of teams throughout his career. He’s also been one of the most wanted players in NBA video games, with the Diesel changing uniforms and landing all over the league in several Dynasty and Association games in years gone by.
NLSC Forum user badreligionau – who also happens to have one of the best Dynasty stories going – has started a discussion called Journeyman Shaq, with the aim of collecting screenshots of Shaq on all the different teams that he’s ended up with during the course of Dynasty and Association games. You’re also invited to come up with city-specific nicknames for all of Shaq’s virtual stints around the league. Eleven teams are currently represented, including five of the six teams he actually played for, so join in the fun!
