It’s Shaq’s birthday today, his 50th in fact, and as a bonus for listeners of the ‘Reads from the Analyst‘, what better way is there to celebrate than joining Kevin Chroust and Chris De Salvo from our sister show ‘The Box Score Show’ as they wind the clock back to March 6, 2000 as the Los Angeles Lakers star delivered a one-of-a-kind performance to crush the Clippers.
In the midst of his only MVP season, Shaq’s birthday was one to remember. In 45 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back, he put up 61 points and grabbed 23 rebounds as a regular-season precursor to the first NBA championship of his career, aided by a particularly bright young star by the name of Kobe Bryant.
