Kobe Bryant Gave Shaq the ASG MVP Trophy

So, who ended up going home with that NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player trophy anyway?

But there was only one trophy, which O’Neal and Bryant playfully played tug-o-war with after the game.

O’Neal said before the Suns and Lakers met at the Staples Center on Thursday that Bryant offered to let him take that it home. The league, of course, will provide a duplicate to Bryant.

"He saw my boys were there," O’Neal said. "He saw how they were looking at it, so he was nice enough to say, ‘Go ahead and take it.’ "
