In honor of Shaquille O’Neal’s birthday, we put together a list of the six best games put together by Shaq. For any younger readers who don’t know much about Shaquille O’Neal, just know that he’s one of the most dominant players ever to play basketball.

He was a monster. So big and forceful that many teams didn’t have anyone to match up against him. He stood 7’1 and weighed around 325 pounds and many experts in basketball believe that he’s the most physically imposing player since Wilt Chamberlain (please, research him as well).

Shaq’s 19-year career is one loaded with accolades that will surely make him a first-ballot Hall of Famer. A 14-time all-star and four-time champion who boasted career averages of 23.7 points & 10.9 rebounds per game — while shooting 53% from the free throw line.

6: 1/23/1993 vs. Dallas

When Shaq was with Orlando, he was in his athletic prime, and that really added to his game and made him a premier shot blocker. In this game against the Mavericks, which the Magic won 127-106, Shaq tallied 38 points, 13 rebounds, and seven blocked shots on 14/16 shooting.

5: 4/23/2000 vs. Sacramento

The O’Neal & Kobe duo in the early 2000s was one that cemented itself as one of the best in history. During this time, the Lakers were almost unstoppable, and in 2000 captured the first of three straight titles. The Kings, however, seemed to have the only man who could physically match up with Shaq — 7’1, 250-pound Vlade Divac. It didn’t phase Shaq too much, and he went for 46 points, 17 rebounds, and five blocked shots while shooting 21/33 from the field in game one of the first round of the playoffs.

4: 3/21/04 vs. Milwaukee

The 2003-04 season was when O’Neal started to fall out of his prime. His points per game average fell six points from the year prior, and he only averaged 21.5 points that year. However, Shaq was still able to put in some dominant efforts and recorded 31 points, 26 rebounds, and seven blocked shots against the Bucks; Shaq shot 14/16 in that game.

3. 6/19/2000 vs. Indiana

The Lakers faced off against the Pacers in the 2000 NBA Finals, defeating them in six games. In the final game, Shaq put in an all-time great effort. With Kobe struggling, O’Neal put in 41 points, while hauling in 12 rebounds and blocking four shots. The 116-111 victory gave him his first of four titles.

2. 3/6/2000 vs. LA Clippers

This game right here showed how truly dominant Shaq was. Back in the early 2000s, the Clippers were not a good team. O’Neal realized and, on his birthday, dominated the Clippers by putting up 61 points and 23 rebounds. The 61 points were a career high for Shaq, and,¬†perhaps even more confounding was that he didn’t record a blocked shot in this game.

1. 11/20/1993 vs. New Jersey

I put this game at number because it’s one of the most impressive triple-doubles ever recorded in league history. Shaq, in just his second season in the NBA, recorded 24 points, 28 rebounds, and a record-tying 15 blocked shots in a win over the New Jersey Nets. At the time, O’Neal became just the second player to record a 20/20/10 triple double.
