Shaquille‌ O’Neal’s⁤ Final​ Game: A Hall of ‌Fame Career ⁢Cut Short

Shaquille O'Neal's Final Game: A ⁢Hall of‍ Fame Career Cut Short

Some players retire with fanfare farewell⁢ tours and celebrating titles, some retire with injury​ and bad⁣ performances, and some play⁢ their last game not knowing that⁤ this was‍ their grand finale. These 10 NBA legends have won a total of 49 NBA titles and appeared in 142 ⁢All-Star Games.‌ Here are their last games in the‌ NBA:

  • Shaquille O’Neal: Towards the end of his career, Shaq ⁢wasn’t in the best shape which limited⁢ his production on the courts. He averaged just nine points⁣ for the ⁢Boston Celtics. In his final year, fighting through injuries ​that allowed him to play just 37⁤ games in the ‍regular season, even though he wasn’t fully healthy,‌ Big Diesel ⁢wanted to play‌ in the ‍playoffs. He got⁢ the opportunity in the second⁤ round against the Miami Heat, ‌but played just three minutes before his ⁤Achilles gave out,⁣ effectively ending his Hall‍ of Fame career. Shaq didn’t ​even score⁣ in his final game.
  • Michael Jordan: Most people​ retire‌ once, but MJ did it⁢ three times. The first time in 1993 ⁣after his ​third title, the second time in 1998 after the “Last Dance,” which proved not to be so last after ⁢all. ‍Realizing ‌that retirement ⁣is not as fun as playing NBA⁤ basketball, MJ was ready to lace ⁤him up ⁤again in 2001. It wasn’t Air Jordan anymore, and he couldn’t fly on a regular basis, but⁣ he ⁣was still good⁢ enough to average 20 points per game in his final two seasons with the Washington Wizards. However, once he broke 40, ⁣it was time to retire for good. Jordan’s farewell game was in the regular ⁣season against Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers, where ‌he scored just 15 points⁤ on six of 15 shooting in a 107-87 loss.
