Most NBA fans remember Shaquille O’Neal as a 350+ pound behemoth who would grind opponents into dust in the low post. What you might not remember, though, is how freaky athletic he was as a 7’2″ rookie who weighed “only” about 290 pounds. He was a perpetual run-away freight train. Why anyone would get in his way on the break is beyond me. Oh wait, nobody did.
