To get us prepared for the upcoming season, ESPN conducted an interviewed the one the only “Big Cactus.”
He was all praise for our MVP and team USA, and shared his thoughts on players like Kobe and LeBron getting offers to play overseas.
He was later questioned about his favorite moments with his former teams, stating “playing with one of the greatest players ever – Kobe Bryant” was his favorite when he was a Laker.
He went on to say the rivalry and tension between the two was fun and it made them play better, claiming it ultimately made it the key to their success when they won the three championships together.
The inevitable “Kobe can’t do without me” rap was brought up and Shaq being himself tried his best to blow it off saying it was entertainment and it was the media who misconstrued the whole ordeal. However, he made it clear he did personally apologize to Kobe about the incident.
