Shaquille O'Neal utilized social media to announce his retirement in a short video posted Wednesday afternoon to Tout.com.
In the clip, O'Neal says, "We did it. Nineteen years, baby. I thank you very much and that's why I’m telling you first: I’m about to retire. Love you. Talk to you soon." O'Neal then flashes a peace sign and his signature smile before the camera pans to the window.
