Everyone’s debating who is the best in the NBA from yesterday to today, mainly Michael Jordan and LeBron James. But don’t ever forget how dominating the Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant team was when they played together.
They had phenomenal careers in the NBA. They became superstars even after their time and they finally decided to retire. Shaquille O’Neal has four championship rings while Kobe Bryant went on to win one more. Shaquille O’Neal’s net worth is in the $400 million range while Kobe Bryant’s was in the $600 million range before his death in 2020.
That was one hell of a year for us, wasn’t it? We started with murder hornets and ended up with Covid that locked us all down and made the world come to a screeching halt. Then one day, we hear the news that Kobe had died with his daughter, Gianna, along with John and Keri Altobelli with daughter, Alyssa, Payton and mother, Sarah Chester, as well as Christina Mauser and the pilot, Ara Zobayan.
We thought we had heard the worst and we had no idea that 2020 had no plans of getting any better!
Fans can argue basketball all they want and my favorite is Michael Jordan, although I don’t have a bad thing to say about LeBron James. That man dominates the court and has done some amazing things out there, including being the highest scorer of all time. So, who is bad-mouthing either one of those GOATS?
But when you watch how Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant played the game, you’ll realize the level of game that has to be played to win. That just might stop you from talking about any NBA player who’s out there making a name for themselves.
I know one thing that will change your mind. It’s this clip combination right here and it shows how awesome they were together.
