That’s the type of photo you frame.
Meanwhile, don’t think this league-wide lovefest has softened Kobe’s heart. He’s still a quote machine; following the loss at Chicago, Kobe was asked if there was something more he could’ve done in the 00’s Lakers’ dynasty days to strength his relationship with Shaq. Many believe that Shaq and Kobe let ego get in the way of more future championships.
Kobe response was that he had to win without Shaq to keep the media from bringing it up for the rest of his career.
Kobe gave a very interesting answer when asked if there was more he could’ve done to save relationship with Shaq: pic.twitter.com/ISdzJSb2ic
