Shaquille O'Neal to retire in 2010
Quote:Shaq Numbers His Days In The NBA

ORLANDO -- In an exclusive interview, former Orlando Magic Center Shaquille O'Neal told News 13's Tiffany Greene Wednesday exactly how long it will be until he hangs up his high tops.

For some time, Shaq has hinted at retirement, but now has an exact number of days.

The 7-foot NBA legend, who now plays for the Phoenix Suns, but maintains a home in Central Florida, had a captive audience on Wednesday as he talked with the kids at the Pine Hills Boys and Girls Club.

He told Green that he intends to play out the remainder of his contract and then call it quits.

"My basketball career will be over in 735 days, and being an educated man, I've always had things to fall back on. So one of my options is law enforcement. But if Jerry Demings is going to be the sheriff I would love to work for him," O'Neal said.

O'Neal was once the top pick in the NBA Draft by the Magic, but he said his next life is in law enforcement.

I'd heard this, and although he's a great player, IT'S ABOUT TIME!

I mean, I watch him play a lot, and I can tell his skills are disinigrating.
I never liked him as a player and as a person (or at least the public image he has), but he was one of the best centres ever in the NBA. He should have retired already when he was still dominant. Now it's just downhill... And he can embarrass himself and his team.

I guess it's already time for him to retire. He's a great player but he have to accept it that he's no longer young!
So I guess he won't play in Europe after all? <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Tongue' />
Respect and thanks for everything:

Alvertis, Bodiroga, Jasikevicius, Radja, Wilkins, Vrankovic, Fotsis, Rebraca, Kattash, Gentile, Koch, Middleton, Kutluay, Rogers, Papadopoulos, Becirovic, Tomasevic, Siskauskas, Pekovic, Lakovic, Vujanic, Chatzivrettas, Maljkovic, Spanoulis and many more to follow in the near future.

It's a shame if you ask me...Shaq has become something of an establishment. Although really, he should have retired and become a coach a long while ago
