After Kobe claimed during an interview at the PHP Agency Convention in Las Vegas earlier this week that he could have won 12 NBA championships if Shaq’s “lazy ass was in shape,” Shaq fired back.
Commenting on a video of Kobe’s interview, Shaq wrote, “U woulda had 12 if you passed the ball more especially in the Finals against the Pistons #facts. ou don’t get statues by not working hard.”
The former Lakers teammates have had a bit of a running beef ever since Shaq was traded to Miami 15 YEARS AGO amidst Kobe’s complaints that O’Neal was lazy.
Now, however, Shaq and Kobe want the NBA world to know that it’s all good.
“There is no beef with @SHAQ. I know most media want to see it but it ain’t gonna happen. Ain’t nothin but love there and we too old to beef anyway #3peat,” Kobe tweeted on Wednesday.
Shaq agreed, and took a comical shot at former, and once again, Lakers center Dwight Howard in the process.
“It’s all good bro, when I saw the interview, I thought you were talking about Dwite, is that how u spell his name lol,” tweeted Shaq.

Kobe’s response to Shaq’s comment was priceless.
