24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Shaquille O’Neal was on the Dan Patrick Show on Monday and at the 5:18 mark of the video above Patrick asks Shaq who was better prime-for-prime between LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, both former teammates of Shaq’s.
The Diesel says he would take Kobe over LeBron because of the Mamba’s killer instinct. Though James is statistically better than Kobe through the first 12 seasons of his career, Bryant has been dubbed the greatest player of his generation and second only to Michael Jordan all-time by numerous players from his era and the stars of today.
Shaq’s opinion obviously carries more weight than most folks does when it comes to this debate.
