NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has announced his retirement after 19 years as a pro. On Twitter:

Unlike Brett Favre, Michael Jordan, Lance Armstrong, and others he’ll almost certainly stay retired. Not only because his body’s  worn out from a lot of years playing a brutal game and he’s got more money than God but because he’s got the demonstrated talent to do other things than the sport that’s defined him most of his life.
