5. Shaquille O’Neal
Shaq joined the Lakers in the prime of his career and boy did he deliver, winning three straight titles during his eight-year run in L.A. He later added another championship with Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat. Shaq, who was one of the most dominant centers of all time, led the league in scoring two times, was a 15-time All-Star, and won the NBA MVP award in 1999-2000.
