Shaquille O'Neal's Birthday: NBA Star Turns 40, Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

Age is just another number when you've got four NBA championships, five kids and some 28,000 points under your belt. (Not to mention the seven tattoos, five rap albums and size 23 shoes.) But Shaquille O' Neal's sure to be celebrating his 40th birthday famously nonetheless.

The 15-time All-Star has lots to commemorate today, having spent his 39th year wrapping up his career in the NBA, landing a new gig as a commentator on TNT (where he showed off his grooming skills by giving co-host Charles Barkley a pedicure for his birthday last month), and earning the The National Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council's title of "Father of the Year."

And if the cameras really don't lie, he's done it all in style -- Shaq style. Here, 30 looks at Shaq's 40 years. They say 40 is the new 30 anyway, right?

Happy Birthday, Shaq!
