Any sports fan knows who Shaquille O’Neal is and if you are unaware, he’s just a four-time NBA champion. He even has a statue outside the Staples Center of him dunking with an intense fervor. That was pretty much how he played every game when he stepped on the court — with passion and force.

O’Neal was virtually unstoppable and his only downfall was the fact that he couldn’t hit from the free throw line. Standing at 7’1″ and weighing in at 325 pounds, the only thing teams could do with him was the hated “Hack-a-Shaq” which was an intentional foul sending him to the free throw line.
