Shaquille O'Neal, June 1: "i'm retiring"
After spending the fall and a good part of the winter meeting up with Bostonians in various locations around the city, Shaq did the inevitable this summer when he announced his retirement. The announcement came on his own terms with a simple tweet linking to a video (left), in which he said, 'We did it; 19 years, baby. Thank you very much. That's why I'm telling you first: I'm about to retire. Love you. Talk to you soon.''
