    Shaq and Kobe are the greatest Offensive duo of all time. Michael and Scottie are the greatest defensive

    Isay Jordan & Pippen because of their relationship. I think they made eachother better. Kobe and Shaq Isn't wrong IMO but there was no way they could've played together longer than they did.

    It Micheal Jordan and Scottie 6 is better than 3 . Also Scottie is a better number 2 because he played his role and never put the team goal in jeopardy with his ego and still ate handsomely . Kobe may have better numbers but at the end of the day he fucked up the team . Scottie never did that. Also the year after Jordan retired the Bulls were still relevant because of Scottie. Where with just Kobe the Lakers fell off until they got bynum/gasol

    Kobe wasn't number 2 he was 1a/b, and Kobe wasn't even close to his prime back when he and Shaq won.

    If u wanna go just off rings, well then MJ and Pip, but if u talkin talent wise, gotta go with Shaq and Kobe...real shit I might even go with LBJ and Wade over MJ and Pip from a talent perspective as well, just off the fact that Pip is overrated than a mofo and clearly the weakest link out of all the great 2nd options in NBA history.

    The reason why the bulls didn't fall off is b/c they still had the same team basically...jus minus jordan... When Shaq left lakers everybody left with him, kobe got stuck with scrubs and no Phil

    I feel Kobe was a far better #2 than Pippen tho
    Pippen without Jordan = 55 wins in a tough era.
    2nd in MVP, i think he won AllStar MVP that year. Lost in 7 Games Semi East Finals to The Knicks

    Kobe without Shaq = No Playoffs . And Phil Jack @ the helm=1st round exit
    The only thing that stopped Shaq and Kobe were Shaq and Kobe.

    Had they put their egos to the side they probably could have won a couple of more titles.

    Shaq still had a lot in the tank after that 2004 season when they lost to the Pistons in the Finals.

    They could have added a free agent and been right back on top but we all know the story and that Shaq left after that.

    It also hurt that Laker brass wanted Shaq to take a pay cut.

    I gave Shaq and Kobe the nod over Jordan and Pippen because Kobe was a much better second option then Pippen.

    Shaq and Kobe were both in their primes and are both top 10 players in league history.

    As great as Jordan is Pippen isn't near as talented as Kobe was in his prime.

    I remember Shaq and Kobe averaging like 28 or 29 a game for a season or two.

    Kobe was the best second option ever during this time.

    Basically it was a team with two number 1 options both in the prime of their career.

    The funny thing is, Kobe would had eventually become the 1st option s. Shaq was getting old and by 06/07 he would of blessed Kobe the same way he blessed D.Wade.

    Kobe wasn't number 2 he was 1a/b, and Kobe wasn't even close to his prime back when he and Shaq won.

    kobe wasn't 1a/b he was a 2 cut it out

    Regular Season:
    99-00: 22.5ppg 6.3rpg 4.9apg 1.6spg
    00-01: 28.5ppg 5.9rpg 5apg 1.7spg
    01-02: 25.2ppg 5.5rpg 5.5apg 1.5spg

    Playoffs:
    00: 21.1ppg 4.5rpg 4.4apg 1.5spg 1.5bpg
    01: 29.4ppg 7.3rpg 6.1apg 1.6spg
    02: 26.6ppg 5.8rpg 4.6apg 1.4spg

    Putting up 25 5 5 doesn't make you a 2nd option no matter how you cut it. Also, Kobe was the official closer on the team so his role was just as big as Shaq's. Stop the hate.
