Happy birthday, Shaq!
On this date in 1972, you were born in Newark, N.J. You would eventually blossom into a first-ballot Hall of Famer, one of the most dominant big men of all time (even if you couldn't quite hit those free throws).
But this isn't about your MVP or your four NBA titles...for you have always been a man of far more depth. Actor, rapper, Santa Claus impersonator: Shaq Diesel, you've done it all.
So let us celebrate your 42nd birthday by remembering the various roles you have assumed over the years.
