Shaq Announces Retirement Via Web Video

Everyone from presidential candidates to athletes are making big announcements via video. The latest is Shaquille O’Neal, who announced in the clip here on Tout that he’s retiring from the NBA after 19 years.

He leaves the sport with some impressive stats — fifth all-time career points (28,596), four championships; a couple of craptastic movies; and a couple of trips to the mike as a questionable rapper. He’s been plagued with an Achilles injury, but brought some good cheer to Boston when he joined the Celtics last year.

Enjoy retirement Shaq.
