Shaq Loves Kobe and Phil

In an interview with ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, Shaquille O'Neal revealed that he loves Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson and holds no hard feelings against them.

He says he only thinks of good times when remembering their time together.

Shaq even went so far as to say Kobe Bryant is the MVP of the league and Phil Jackson is the greatest coach ever.

As for the well publicized past problems with Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson, Shaq states, "It was all marketing."

He also boldly claims that the Kobe and Shaq duo is "still the greatest little-man, big-man 1-2 punch ever created in the history of the game."

Shaq then reminds everyone that the Lakers won 3 out of 4 NBA championships and probably would've won 6 or 7 by now if they had stayed together.

Shaq was my favorite player when he was with the Lakers. Still one of my all-time favorites to ever play. Such a shame that things turned out the way they did.

He should have retired a Laker.

Let's hope that all the ill will and drama in the past can be put to rest for good now and Laker Nation can be reunited in peace.
