However Shaq is an ******* and he dissed the Lakers, their owner, the city of LA, and the fans aditionally.
Have to disagree with you on that one. Shaw wasn't a leader, I mean he lead by example because he was great but it was because he didn't lead enough that Kobe and him didn't get along.
Shaq would come in over weight and Kobe hated that. He also practiced with zero intensity and never improved on his FT shooting, something a perfectionist like Kobe couldn't understand.
