From Oprah to Regis, look back on stars who stepped out of the spotlight this past year
Basketball's biggest star has left the court. After 19 seasons of playing in the NBA, O'Neal announced he would not be returning for the 2011-2012 season. "We did it. 19 years baby. I want to thank you very much," he said in a video posted on Twitter. "That's why I'm telling YOU I'm about to retire. Love you."
