Kobe slams Shaq for not practicing
Kobe is out on a Nike-fueled tour of Italy right now and in a radio interview he was asked what was his issue with Shaq: “I like players who work out. I used to do that 6-7 hours per day. I cannot stand players who practice for 30 minutes. I need to say something to them”.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It was a shot at on old foe.
Today Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant called out players who don’t practice. Translation: he’s talking about Shaquille O’Neal, also known as The Big Broadcaster.
Of course, Bryant and O’Neal have history.
They were teammates and rivals with the Lakers. Then they parted and were just rivals, slamming each other in the press and at open mic’ night.
Currently, there’s a détente between the two, which results in not-so subtle digs flying back and forth every few months.
Whatever the case, it’s nice to see O’Neal, now a retired TNT broadcaster, getting a taste of his own medicine.
In July, he called out Chris Bosh, Recently, he bragged about warning Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge not to trade Kendrick Perkins.
And he made a career of jabbing, poking, and swiping his peers. For once, the shoe is on the other foot.
