Shaquille O’Neal To Wear #33 On Cavaliers Uniform
The 15-time All-Star chose the new digits because it corresponds with the number he wore in high school and at LSU before turning pro. The Big Witness — yes, that’s what we’re calling him — wore No. 32 when he played in Orlando, Miami and Phoenix (he wore No. 34 in Los Angeles from 1997-2004), but that number, 32, is already taken by veteran power forward Joe Smith.
Apparently, Shaq and the Cavs couldn’t wait for free agent Joe to jet somewhere else this offseason. Got to sell those replicas now, man!
