Not as Unstoppable as Advertised

For a guy who’s supposed to be the most dominant, unstoppable player of his generation, Shaq has certainly been on the wrong side of some lopsided playoff losses:

  • 1994: Indiana def. Orlando, 3-0
  • 1995: Houston def. Orlando, 4-0
  • 1996: Chicago def. Orlando, 4-0
  • 1997: Utah def. Los Angeles, 4-1
  • 1998: Utah def. Los Angeles, 4-0
  • 1999: San Antonio def. Los Angeles, 4-0
  • 2004: Detroit def. Los Angeles, 4-1
  • 2007: Chicago def. Miami, 4-0

To be fair about it, he did win NBA championships in 2000, 2001 and 2002 with the Lakers, and in 2006 with Miami.
