Kobe Bryant Calls Shaq "Four" to Remind Him That He Has More NBA Championships Than Him

Kobe Bryant Calls Shaq "Four" to Remind Him That He Has More NBA Championships Than Him

With all due respect to Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant is the most "not nice" player in the entire NBA. And, he proved it again recently during an interview with Yahoo! Sports. While discussing his current relationship with Shaquille O'Neal, the Black Ice Mamba revealed that he likes to remind Shaq that he has more NBA championships than him. In fact, he likes to do it every single time that he sees Shaq and even has a nickname that he's given to him to serve as a constant reminder of his championship count compared to Kobe's.

"I always remind him every time I see him," Bryant said. "I saw him after the All-Star Game and said, 'How you doing, 'Four'? He said, 'Oh, you [expletive].'"

But, despite Kobe's taunts, Bryant insists that the two former teammates have a great relationship now that they're no longer on the same team.

"[Our relationship] is really good now," he said. "We have such a mutual respect for each other."

That mutual respect will be on full display tonight when Shaq attends the Mavericks/Lakers game at Staples Center to have his number retired. Hopefully, Kobe will keep the "Four" nickname to himself for the night.
