Even though Shaq won a ring with the Heat after leaving the Lakers, he hated watching Kobe win his fourth and fifth rings in Los Angeles without him. Specifically, he hated watching him win the fifth one because Kobe called him out after he did it.
"I was pissed," he said. "I got four first, so I threw a little jab. He had a couple years. Then, they somehow got Pau Gasol and [Andrew] Bynum and they got four. I was like, 'OK, we're tied. I'm cool for awhile.' Then he gets number five and a reporter says, 'You feel good that you got one more than Shaq?' Kobe's like, 'Yeah, I got one more than Shaq.' I'm like, 'Aw, shit! They got me.'"
