The Orlando Magic will make another addition to their Hall of Fame on March 27th, when former Magic big man Shaquille O'Neal is inducted. O'Neal, who spent the first four years of his career in Orlando before going to the Los Angeles Lakers, will also be honored during the team's game that night against the Detroit Pistons.

O'Neal will be the third member of the team Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Nick Anderson and Pat Williams, who were inshrined in the inaugural class during the team's 25th Anniversary season last year.

In his four years with the team, O'Neal turned into one of the premier big men in the league. Appearing in 295 games, O'Neal averaged 27.2 points, 12.5 rebounds, 2.8 blocks and 2.4 assists per game, while shooting 58.1 percent from the field. He also helped lead the team to their first NBA Finals appearance in 1995, losing to the Houston Rockets in four games.

The team-centric Hall of Fame is located on the Terrace level of the Amway Center, and can be seen by guests during every game.
