Los Angeles, La (NBC33) — Tuesday, Shaquille O’Neal's purple and gold No. 34 Lakers jersey was retired in Los Angeles.
O'Neal helped the franchise win three straight NBA titles during his time on the West Coast.
From 1996 to 2004, he and Kobe Bryant were one of the most dominant pairs in the NBA.
O'Neal joins former Laker greats Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and six others as the only players to have their number retired by the franchise.
