Former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal agrees that he is the fourth best center in history.
Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal was one of the most dominant forces the NBA has ever seen.
However, there have been several other great centers in NBA history, and Shaq is actually quite humble when compared to those other legends.

While Shaq was absolutely a force to be reckoned with, the three players above him certainly have a great case for being where they are on this list. Kareem remains the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.

All of these players accumulated incredible accolades during their respective careers, and it’s basically just a matter of preference when ranking them. You can mix and match all of these guys and make a legitimate argument for them. (Fielding)
