Shaq and longtime Lakers fan and actor Jack Nicholson share a moment during Shaq’s No. 34 retirement ceremony at the Staples Center on Tuesday night.

“I just wish Dr. Buss was here to see this, to enjoy this joyous occasion,” O’Neal said of Lakers owner Jerry Buss, who died in February. “I always hoped and prayed it would come. It was a dream come true.”

“He said, `You can be as great as these guys,”‘ O’Neal recalled.

“It gets me real emotional,” O’Neal said before the game. “Growing up in Newark, New Jersey, and my father teaching me about the game, always mentioning Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and telling me when I was a young medium juvenile delinquent that, `If you do things right, son, maybe one day you can be as great as those guys.”‘ – nba
