It's been more than a decade now since Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant played together on the Lakers, and yet, people still talk about their time together as teammates. They were, without a doubt, one of the best duos in NBA history. But it's hard not to think about what they might have been able to accomplish if not for their perceived differences off the court. They both went on to enjoy success after playing together in Los Angeles, but what if they had stayed on the same team for their entire careers? How many more titles would they have gone on to win? And how would the perception of each of them be different right now?
We'll never know the answers to those questions. But last week, Shaq and Kobe sat down for an interview on The Big Podcast With Shaq to discuss all the rumors that have swirled around them for the last 15 years or so. That podcast, which also features Shaq's co-host John Kincade, was finally posted this morning (you can find it here). And while listening to it, we discovered a few new things about their rocky relationship (sadly, there was no mention of this). Here are the 10 Things We Learned From Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant's Podcast.
