A 22 year old Shaquille O’Neal. A beauty to watch. He could run the floor on any break, he could bust out the handles, he could finish with the little turnaround jump hook. And oh yea, he had 11 dunks.
This was against sorry Minnesota Timberwolves on 4/20/94, led by Christian Laettner and JR Rider. Shaq ended up with 53 points in just 36 minutes in the blowout win.
April 12th, 1990. Karl and Stockton’s Jazz vs Magic, Worthy and the Lakers. Every single one of Karl Malone’s efficient 45pts.
