Happy Birthday, Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O'Neal is 37 years old today, and to honor his day of birth, I've decided to post every nickname I can think of for the Phoenix Suns center:

Shaq
Shaq Fu
The Big Cactus
The Diesel
Big Daddy
The Big Aristotle
The Big Shaqtus
Superman
The Big Agave
Walt Chamberneezy (given to him by Kobe Bryant while they were LA teammates)
The Big Baryshnikov
The Big Galactus
Dr. Shaq (after earning an MBA)
The Real Deal
The Big Deporter (after knocking foreigners Arvydas Sabonis and Rik Smits out of the playoffs)
Shaq Albert (from a Mark Cuban cartoon that depicted him as Fat Albert)
Osama Bin Shaq (for terrorizing Keith Van Horn in the post, which he received much criticism for)
The Big Banana (for peeling the life out of the NJ Nets)

Good Lord, that's a lot of nicknames. Many of these were given by Shaq himself, which violates the rules of nicknames—but he's Shaq, so we'll let it slide.

Happy birthday, big fella!
