Shaq Drop Steps Joakim Noah

2010 NBA Playoffs First Round | Shaq Drop Steps Joakim Noah

Category: Basketball


Shaq be nimble, Shaq be quick.

Blink, and there’s  the Shaq Attaq.

After missing two months with a surgically repaired thumb, Shaquille O’Neal is finally back!

At Game 1 of the Cleveland Cavaliers First Round series with the Chicago Bulls on April 17, Shaq returns to the lineup and shows us why at age 38 (17 years in the NBA amassing 28,000 career points), he still have some gas left in his tank and the Cavs did not err in trading for him to help win one for The King.

With his favorite move, the drop step (called the “Black Tornado” by O’Neal), he spun away from Bulls center Joakim Noah on the baseline for a quick two-handed slam much to the crowd’s delight.

In only 24 minutes, he also contributed 12 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks as the Cavs win 96-83.
