Buss? Shaq? As a part of the same franchise, once again?

... No.

Shaq can make all the positive comments he wants towards the Los Angeles Lakers franchise, but there is absolutely no chance he ever dons the purple and gold again as long as Phil Jackson, Kobe Bryant and especially Jerry Buss are associated with the Lakers. The team is back on track and they seem to be doing very fine after ending the Shaq-Kobe era. There's no need whatsoever to re-open this chapter and bring Shaq back at a small contract to play back-up for Andrew Bynum. This is Shaquille O'Neal we're talking about.

If he can leave his ego at the door, I would LOVE Shaq as a backup, providing he can still run and isn't obese.

Kobe would agree.

I wouldn't mind. I believe most of us, if not all - who knows, would like to see him retire as a Laker. :(

Why wouldn't Buss want him back? Because he talked trash about this organization? Kobe did something similar not too long ago. People act like Phil, Kobe, and Jerry Buss are still carrying grudges against Shaq. If Phil held grudges, he wouldn't be coaching Kobe here in L.A. If Kobe held grudges, he wouldn't be under Phil and would probably be playing elsewhere. If Buss held grudges, Kobe would have been traded a year ago and Buss wouldn't be saying things about how he must keep Kobe at all costs. These guys are in the business of winning, and if Shaq will come for cheap and check his ego at the door, I'm all for it...and I hate Shaq (well not hate, but strongly dislike). Although I would like Kobe to win a couple rings before so that the whole "Kobe can't win one without shaq" argument can be put to rest.

Anything can happen. But I think Shaq will finish out his days in Phoenix.

Vet's min, plus a back-up... sorry but with Shaq's ego that will not happen...

If he'd take it, I'd give Shaq MLE money to play a back up role.

And I see no idea why Buss wouldn't do it.

It would be a beautiful full-circle moment if Shaq came back to LA to play alongside Kobe for a season or two before retirement.

Doubt it'll happen, but it'd redeem a lot of Shaq BS if it did.

PLEASE NO

Yes Shaq still has something left but can you honestly see him here co-existing with Kobe and co. drama free?

Shaq's got a big mouth and with the media here anything can be taken out of context and next thing you know the feud will be back

I'm as big a Shaq Fan (no pun intended) as any, but IMO, we need a center of a Camby mold as backup much more than a traditional one.

With teams like Denver showing they can use small lineups to give us trouble, we need a versatile center who can run the floor in case a team puts out a small lineup. Shaq doesn't fit that at all.

I do believe he's still a top 10 center in the league easily. But that said, he's not what we need with Gasol and Bynum.

I do. He coexisted long enough to win 3 championships in a row and go to the finales 4 straight times.

People need to stop acting like the relationship was a disaster. That relationship PRODUCED.

Shaq himself does not rule out returning to the Lakers as a backup. That implies that he's willing to put all that aside if he decides to take this path.

Shaq is bipolar

1 week after the NBA finals are over he raps "You can't do it without me" And now he's singing Kobe praise

Whatever comes out of shaq's big fat mouth is not concrete
