I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
To one of the most dominant big men to ever play the game, congrats Shaq! The Lakers have retired his jersey #34, and now he Joins Legends like Kareem Abdul Jabbar & The Great Jerry West.
