Shaq and Kobe would have been on this list if it was just player feuds. But unfortunately, this is called the top 10 Player-Coach feuds.
Now even though the Shaq and Phil feud was not as bad as the Kobe and Shaq Feud, it was pretty bad to say the least.
Now the trio of "Big Diesel," "The Black Mamba," and "The Zen Master" did win three NBA Championships, but despite their success, Phil had to decide between Shaq or Kobe. As we all know, Shaq ended up being traded to the Heat.
During the 2005-06 Season Phil decided to take a shot at Wade and Shaq.
He called Shaq lazy and basically called Wade a cheater. Now this was interesting because it involved one of Phil Jackson's former players.
If he had just taken a shot at Wade by himself, then maybe it wouldn't be looked at as something bad to say about one of his former players. But Phil ignited a flame between him and Shaq.
Later Shaq even claimed that Phil started the Shaq-Kobe rivalry.
Shaq and Phil haven't seemed to ever have liked each other, and the words that have been said since the departure of Shaq has ignited a huge flame that will take a very long time to put out.
