While his towering height doesn’t work to his advantage in paparazzi hide-and-seek, it made him one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He played for the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics throughout his 19-year career before retiring in 2011.
