It amazes me that as great as Shaq was he could've been even better with a little better work ethic. He's the most dominant physical player in NBA history, but could have been top 5 of all time of any position if he would have handled the end of his career a little better.
I hear this a lot. He probably would have extended his career by staying in better shape, but i don't think anything would have put him above Russell, Wilt, and Jabbar on the All time Centers list. He's 4th on the list and would have been 4th even if he was a gym-rat. Shaq's like the guy who partied through college and still got a 3.8 GPA. He got the best of both worlds.
