Shaquille O'Neal Video: Watch the Boston Center Go Down with Another Injury

Tom Kinslow@@TomKinslowFeatured ColumnistApril 4, 2011

Shaquille O'Neal video is here, and it might just be the saddest sight I've ever seen as a basketball fan.

Finally, after being out for what seemed like forever, O'Neal returned to the lineup against the Detroit Pistons, and it took him less than a half of basketball before he left with an injury.

I wouldn't believe it if there wasn't video evidence, and honestly, I'm hoping that all of this missed time will convince the big man that it's time to hang it up after the season.

The man can't stay healthy anymore, and he's been relegated to nothing more than a scrub role off the bench for a title contender. O'Neal is one of the greatest centers of all time, and I don't want to see him limping up and down the court as he chases a ring.

I want to remember the Shaq that would dominate every center in the league and make it look easy.

If Shaq couldn't play a full season in the prime of his career, then there's no way he can do it now, when he's way over the hill. The sad thing is that Boston could really use his presence in the middle come playoff time, when they're going to need their bigs to step up against the top teams in the NBA.

This is just a sad, pathetic sight and should be the final nail in O'Neal's NBA coffin.
