Shaq got 3 as the main guy, Kobe got his second as the main guy. Either way, they've both had great careers. I think Shaq needs to get out before he tarnishes his legacy. Hopefully Kobe gets out while he can still play. Just think if Kobe retired last night....THAT would be the way to go out!
Why would Kobe retire @ 30? Are you an idiot? He has the core of his team back next year (Gasol, Artest, Odom,Bynum), and has a shot @ #6. Why would he retire??
All you guys saying Shaq got him 3 ... you know Shaq would have never beaten the Spurs, Trailblazers or Kings in those 3 championship years if it wasn't for Kobe destroying those said teams. Shaq had his shot when he was the man by himself and he got SWEPT out the finals by Houston ... Shaq is now nothing to KOBE.
Hate all you want ... you just make the guy better!
