With the Toronto Raptors championing the East, winning a ticket to the NBA Finals, the miracle Shaquille O’Neal’s continues to shine in the 35th consecutive season.
After 6 2019 Eastern NBA Playoffs, the Toronto Raptors have officially won a ticket to the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. This means that the miracle called Shaquille O’Neal continues to help his teammates after 35 seasons.
It is known that there is an interesting fact that Shaquille O’Neal’s fans have realized is that during the past 35 years, any NBA Finals series has contributed to Shaq’s teammates. This year, the legendary team player in the NBA Finals is Danny Green of the Toronto Raptors, who played with Shaquille O’Neal in Cleveland Cavaliers.
Joining the NBA since 1992, Shaquille O’Neal played 19 years in the NBA under the colors of six different teams. In NBA Finals 2018, two of Shaq’s teammates are LeBron James (joint duel at Cleveland Cavaliers) and Jeff Green (at the Boston Celtics).
Meanwhile, NBA Finals 2017 has Matt Barnes of Golden State Warriors, Shaquille O’Neal’s partner during the Phoenix Suns. In 2016, there is LeBron James. In 2015, Warriors had Leandro Barbosa with Shaq at the Phoenix Suns. In the NBA Finals 2014, Boris Diaw of San Antonio Spurs is also Shaq’s partner in the Suns.
This miracle has happened since 1984. Greg Kite was a player in the NBA Finals of the Boston Celtics. The general had a Orlando Magic time from 1990-94, when Shaq just got Magic pick at the 1992 NBA Draft.
However, perhaps this miracle will be hard to maintain in the next season because of losing most partners of Shaquille O’Neal. Anyway, this is quite an interesting fact about the legendary Shaq, LA Lakers who retired 7 years ago.
It will be a giant miracle if Toronto Rapters become champion of NBA Finals, let’s watch and hope for them.
