4. Shaq and Kobe

Seasons Played Together: 8 (1996-2004)
NBA Titles: 3
These two could never get along, but that didn't stop them from winning three out of four Finals appearances. Shaq left Penny and the Magic for the money and a chance to play for a franchise that had a reputation of building contenders around dominant centers. The Lakers swapped Vlade Divac for a high-schooler named Kobe Bryant. The rest is history. Along with Phil Jackson (and Robert Horry), Shaq and Kobe dominated a stacked Western Conference and took advantage of weak Eastern Conference opponents in the Finals. If they could've gotten along, they could've easily won two or three more.
