Imagine a Kobe of today playing with a Shaq in his prime. That's a dream come true.
the fights would have been worse
shaq was the veteranand kobe was the young gun(he understood that a little so he didn't push the envelope too mcuh cause he was about winning)
but regardless the fight for alpha dog status was still there
kobe at 28 and shaq at 28 would be an alpha dog battle for the ages
