Shaq and Kobe haven’t always seen eye-to-eye, but there’s no doubting the mutual respect the ex-teammates share for one another.
Following Kobe’s unforgettable 60-point performance in the final game of his legendary career, he and Shaq had a moment. It consisted of a hug and Shaq telling Kobe, “You’re a bad motherf—er”.
What Shaq said to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols might be even better:
Just spoke to Shaq – he said "I challenged him to get 50 and the mother****er got 60"
