Although Shaquille O'Neal rarely finds himself speechless, he says he's thrilled beyond words to see his jersey in the Los Angeles Lakers' rafters. The Lakers planned a halftime ceremony Tuesday to honor O'Neal.

They'll hang his No. 34 jersey in the Staples Center collection including Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson. O'Neal is the sixth-leading scorer in NBA history. He played eight of his 19 NBA seasons with the Lakers, winning three championships and reaching four NBA finals during his basketball prime.
