Kobe: ‘I Woulda had 12 F***ing Rings if Shaq Wasn’t a Lazy A**’
Although Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal have officially buried the hatchet after feuding for several years, you wouldn’t know it from hearing Bryant talk about his former teammate. In a new interview, he says Shaq was a “lazy ass,” adding he “woulda had f***ing 12 rings” had O’Neal put forth a little effort.
“I wish he was in the gym,” Bryant says of O’Neal’s physical shape in his heyday. “Me and Shaq sit down all the time and I say, ‘Dude if your lazy ass was in shape …'”
While his comments may come across as insulting, Bryant insists he and O’Neal trash talk each other all the time — and both are OK with it.
