While Shaq and Kobe seem to agree that they missed the chance to do something even more special as a duo, Kobe pointed out why it wasn't possible.

"How many years would Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain be playing together with Wilt in his prime and Michael wanting to come up?" he said. "How long is that going to last before Michael says, 'You know what? It's time for me to show…?' That's why he and I are one of a kind when it comes to tandems. You literally had two Alpha males playing together on one team, and that normally does not happen."
