With NBA TV celebrating "Shaq Week," it's worth noting that Shaquille O'Neal has a few gold medals to his name in addition to NBA titles and MVP trophies. Shaq won gold in his lone Olympics appearance, helping the USA triumph in Atlanta in 1996. He was MVP of the 1994 FIBA World Championship in Canada. And in 1990, he helped the South team win at the U.S. Olympic Festival.
