Shaquille O'Neal says that he and Kobe Bryant "on the court, had a perfect relationship" when they played together for the Los Angeles Lakers, despite their infamous off-court rivalry. In fact, Shaq asserts, the two are the best duo the storied franchise has ever seen.

"Shaq and Kobe had problems, but guess what? We're the most dominant Laker one-two punch, little guy–big man, ever, in the history of the Lakers," Shaq says. "That goes for Magic [Johnson] and Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar] also. No disrespect."

Watch as Shaq elaborates on the professional bond that he had with Kobe, and how their complicated dynamic is not uncommon among other greats in their respective industries.
