I think it was all designed by Phil (Jackson). Because if you think about it, Phil never called us into the office and said, ''Both of you all, shut the (heck) up.'' Never did that in four years. He knew that when I read something, I was going to get upset. And he knew Kobe was going to always come out and play hard. So I think it was all done by design.

You think he just wanted to light a fire under you guys? Yeah. I think that's exactly what it was. I think it was all done by design. Really. He never called us in a meeting and said, ''Shut up.'' And basically, it was never a face-to-face ... thing. It was always, he'd say something to you, I'd say something to another guy, I'd say something to you. That's all it was.


He does not rule out a return to the Lakers as a free agent in the summer of 2010 on a one-year deal to backup Andrew Bynum. (On the other hand, he says he doesn't want to go somewhere as a backup, but it's hard to imagine him at starter's minutes for a contender in two seasons.) The L.A. scenario is far off in ways that have nothing to do with the calendar -- owner Jerry Buss would have to sign off on it, and people close to Shaq know the breakup was so contentious that Buss might be the tougher sell than Kobe Bryant. But O'Neal, at least, is open to the possibility.

I'd take Shaq for the min. so he can back up Bynum. Name me another player like Shaq, that has impact on the game and you can get him for cheap.

Shaq >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mihm and Mbenga.

Kobe? People need to stop acting like Kobe has any control with the Lakers... he works for Dr. Buss. He's a player, not an owner.

Dr. Buss is going to make the final decision on anything and he doesn't need to ask Kobe for his permission to do anything with his team.

You whine more than any female I know.

You say that as if whether or not Kobe would want him back wouldn't have any influence on Dr. Buss signing off on any trade that would bring him back. Whether Shaq comes or not, Kobe will most likely end his career here, so why wouldn't Dr. Buss want to keep him happy? Kobe's no idiot, he knows all of this. I don't even think Phil would want him back.

he doesn't need to ask him, but if he's a smart businessman he would definitely taking into consideration how kobe felt about it....as well as phil

its not like this shaq 8 years ago...he's only got a few years in him, and in the event kobe would be unhappy with this move, i doubt buss would say screw him, and do it anyway knowing shaq is retiring in less than 2 years, and kobe can opt out
