Despite a childish, tumultuous feud, it’s impossible to not consider Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal one of the greatest duos in league history.
In Shaq, the Los Angeles Lakers had an all-time top-five center in the prime of his career. Meanwhile, Kobe was at his most athletic, establishing himself as one of the game’s most talented young stars.
Shaq and Kobe would lead the Lakers to three consecutive championships (2000-2002).
Considering that when the duo was on the same page they were such a force to be reckoned with, many wonder what kind of damage Kobe and Shaq could have done if they had actually liked one another.
