As much of a tool Shaq has been in his career you still gotta respect arguably the most dominant player to ever play the game. Wish you coulda stayed and won more rings big fella.

Some of you need to drop the Shaq hate.

Guy was responsible for bringing this franchise back to the top of the NBA along with Kobe and Phil.

Yeah he did things and said things after leaving that pissed us off but that's now in the past. He's going up in the rafters with the greats, where he belongs.

I don't know if this is far fetched or lame, but is it just me or would you guys agree or think it would be cool that when the time comes, the Lakers organization could possibly retire Kobe's jersey and honor him by retiring both 24 and 8?

Okay people get over it, Shaq didn’t say anything about Kobe, he also didn’t say anything about any of his teammates. This was about him.

Shaq had a lot of good things to say about Kobe pregame.

Pregame @SHAQ said he had more to say (and more creative presentation to do), so he'd release an online video afterward, too.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.

So what? That was the part where he said he'd mention his famous friends.

You guys act like he named off his teammates except Kobe, he didn't.
