Shaquille O’Neal: “Kobe and I were the most dominant duo”

Shaquille O’Neal: “Kobe and I were the most dominant duo”

Without a doubt, one of the worst news of this 2020 that is already ending has been the departure of Kobe Bryant. One of the best players in history and of what, by proper names, may be the best franchise in the NBA.

All kinds of stars have lived together in the Los Angeles Lakers, with more or less fortune. One of the most successful was the one that combined Shaquille O’Neal and the Mamba, who achieved a historic threepeat from 2000 to 2002.

From nostalgia, the one who is one of the most dominant centers in basketball history remembered one of the best teammates he played with.

“Before I lost Kobe, I lost my sister and I learned that if you have something to say to someone, tell them. Kobe and I were respectable friends. Many people think that we have to be best friends to win championships. It’s not like that. You just have to have the utmost respect, and we definitely had it. But we definitely should have communicated more. You know, at least once a week. We are so busy doing our thing, trying to take care of ourselves, after we retire we go our separate ways. And that is also understandable. I wish I could have said something to him, ”added the one who also won a ring with the Miami Heat.

In the same interview, the CBS Sports podcast also confirmed that the duo that made up Kobe is the best ever: “Look, we won three out of four, so if I had to do it all over again, what would change? I would not change anything. As the leader of the team, he had to do what it took to keep him going. That is why we were the most dominant tandem of a big and a small ever created. The most enigmatic, the most controversial, the most dominant duo ever created ”.

A few anecdotal statements, since Shaq has always tried to avoid comparisons with other historical pairs. Which he already did when asked about the current champions and the pairing of Anthony Davis and LeBron James. (GG) (NBA Maniacs)
