Annotation: KEYNOTE The 28th title in this top-selling sports series reviews the life of the basketball superstar, center for the Los Angeles Lakers. DESCRIPTION Shaquille O'Neal is one of the biggest and brightest stars of the National Basketball Association. Since his rookie year as center for the Orlando Magic, and in later years with the Los Angeles Lakers, he has dominated on the court. Whether slamming massive dunks, rejecting baskets attempted by his opponents, or ripping down rebounds, Shaq makes his presence known whenever he plays. In the 1999/2000 season, he helped the Lakers win the first of their three consecutive NBA Championships. These victories, plus appearances in movies, commercials, and advertisements, have made him one of the most recognized and well-paid figures in sports today. And Shaq is also a big man off the court. He has put fame and fortune to good use by founding charitable organizations and donating his time and money to help those less fortunate.
