Hello Lazies.

The Los Angeles Lakers paid the ultimate tribute to one of their greatest players on Friday, celebrating the outsized contributions and outsized personality of center Shaquille O’Neal. They unveiled a mammoth statue of the Hall of Famer, that will join the other iconic figures standing outside Staples Center.

To follow this momentous occasion, The Players Tribune posted an article teaming up with longtime Laker photographer Andrew D. Bernstein, to reflect his eight seasons in the purple and gold.

Catch you Thursday.
