Shaq on Time with Lakers: “We Could have got Six Championships”

It’s hard to pinpoint a specific memory to define Shaquille O’Neal. The fact that most basketball fans can remember him in the context of their own lives should prove to be a testiment of his legacy as a player.

Whether you were watching him tear down backboards like no one before or since, or sat glued to your grainy, pre-HD television as Kobe lobbed a thunderous alley-oop to cement their first trip to the NBA Finals, Shaq’s “larger than life” persona on and off the court was one that we will probably never see again.

Many will look to that same persona as the same one that caused the rift between him and Kobe Bryant that halted their title run at three. For years after the Laker-Heat trade that sent the embittered Shaq to Miami, the two rarely positively acknowledged one another, only clearing the air in the last few years as the two shared Co-MVP honors during the 2009 All-Star Game.

Still though, Shaq contended in an interview with J.A. Adande that the premature departure from Los Angeles left a lot of champioships on the table:

“I don’t like to live in a world of ifs,” Shaq said. “But if we would have stayed, possibly we could have got six.”
Despite their personal alpha-dog conflicts, Shaq himself will tell you that Bryant was the best he had ever played with in his time in the NBA, as he did with the Sporting News in 2009:

“Most ferocious was Kobe. Fiercest, most competitive, it was Kobe. D-Wade is second after that.”
In the context of Lakers lore, Shaq is in no way the greatest Laker. Looking at it, he isn’t even the greatest import when considering the work that Kareem Abdul-Jabaar put in during the 1970s and Showtime era of the 1980s. With three championships and an MVP trophy during his tenure with the purple and gold, though, it’s hard not to glorify Shaq in his prime, players bouncing off of his bedsheet-sized jersey as he muscled his way to the basket.

Yes in my opinion shaq should've been the greatest player ever, but he didn't want to stay in shape, and didn't want to learn to shoot free throws. Instead he wanted to be a rapper and an actor.

...Well....to be reasonable.... Wade should've been on NBA Defense First Team this year...not Kobe...same goes for Tony Allen...

Lets just put it this way...there will never be another Kobe....and there will never be another Wade as it stands right now...in the league.

I don't doubt what he says. He has said in a couple interviews that he began to get selfish later in his career which is why I think they had to break it up. It should have been no problem for him to say I'm the #2 guy Kobe now you run the show for the next 3peat but his pride and ego wouldnt allow it.

They could have dominated the league for years to come but I'm glad they didnt because it allowed my squad to get 3 rings while they bullsh*tted around and broke up their dynasty.

I wonder what the haters will say about this.

The Shaq we all knew was done after the 05-06 season, so I don't buy that.

So if he couldn't do it in 2003 and 2004 while they were still together, what made him think they could've gotten six rings?
