shaq is a smart guy hes seen a shift in kobe's image and perception and realizes right now hes MJ, magic, west

hes the face of the NBA any negativity from his mouth regarding kobe will only do 2 things

1)get people mad at him for being immature

2) make people rethink who was the cause of the break-up

remember when shaq went 8-mile everyone was saying how immature he is, and how he should let it go because kobe has

hes not stupid never has been

I think Shaq's just growing up a bit more. He's seen that what he always says is dumb, and he's not in that good situation of always being with a contender any more, so it opened his eyes up. He doesn't have Kobe with him, he doesn't have D-Wade with him, and he has the Suns where he can't run and they haven't been winning, so he's learned to appreciate what he had in the past and how great Kobe was for him and his career.

Yes he's saying this to be more politically correct or w/e, but I think he genuinely sees how much Kobe meant to him in his past.

Here's my question: is he right in saying that Shaq/Kobe was the best 1-2 big guy/little guy punch in history?

I agree.

I think he probably regrets not trying harder to make things work in LA. He sees that if he had stayed in LA, he would still be winning Championships. He's messed up, and now he's on a team that will only just get into the playoffs and then will have a likely 1st rounder exit. He's gone from riches to rags in NBA Superstar terms.

Doubt it. Shaq is one of the biggest egomaniacs in the world, just not in basketball. We've all seen it before. Shaq seems sorry for something stupid he's done or he seems to have gotten over what happened in LA, but before you know it, he goes and does something stupid again.

I liked the interview. Many were pissed about the whole rap incident but he said that he called Kobe right after and apologized for it. If he did indeed do that, that just means there are no hard feelings between the two.

Everyone wants to find a reason to hate Shaq. But he was still a Laker and was the biggest part in winning championships here in LA.

Shaq is two faced, I've lost all respect for this man

That's what I'm asking, 'cause I can't think off the top of my head and I feel like I'm missing something obvious. I just don't think I've ever heard it mentioned before, top big/small duos in league history. Stockton/Malone, maybe, but they never won anything.

If I had a nickel every time someone said "Shaq has matured" in the past 4 years...

No one here is denying Shaq's contributions and his instrumental role in getting that 3-peat. I am very appreciative for what he's done. But he's been an [expletive] the past 4 years. He does a lot of dumb crap, then, metaphorically, puts on those puppy dog eyes, and hopes we forgive him. And every time there are people saying "oh he seems genuine" and "yea, looks like he's matured", then he goes and does something childish again.

Imagine a Kobe of today playing with a Shaq in his prime. That's a dream come true.

do you consider magic a small because if you do then no

i mean figureatively magic was a small he was the PG it all depends how you view small then again kobe is 6"6' and magic was 6"9' so i would venture to say

magic and kareem followed by

john havlichek and bill russell ( though i wasn't around to see them i mean 11 titles jesus)

kobe and shaq

then west and wilt

then oscar robinson and kareem

then bird and parrish though bird was a foward he was shorter than magic (the reason they aren't higher is it was more of a whole team i mean mchale and dennis johnson)
