Michael Jordan, Larry Bird Top Shaquille O'Neal's List of Favorite NBA Players Throughout his 19 years in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neal has played with some notable names in the league's history, and a few of them top his list of favorite NBA players of all time.

Michael Jordan ranks first on Shaq's list. Jordan's legacy has left a lasting impact on Shaq, especially considering Jordan put up 64 points against the Orlando Magic in 1993 — Shaq's first trip to Chicago. O'Neal was no slouch in that game either, recording 29 points with 24 rebounds.

Also on Shaq's list is Celtics' great, Larry Bird, and Bird's notorious frenemy, Magic Johnson.
