KOBE SAYS HE WOULD HAVE HAD MORE RINGS IF SHAQ HAD A BETTER WORK ETHIC
Kobe Bryant recently sat down with Patrick Bet-David in Las Vegas for the 10th annual PHP Agency Convention. During the interview at one point, Bryant was asked about Shaq’s work ethic and whether or not he went hard in the gym. Bryant noted that he and Shaq could have had many more rings if Shaq had more of a work ethic.
“He’d be the greatest of all time,” Bryant said when speaking on how good Shaq would have been if he’d gone to the gym. “He’d be the first to tell you that. I wish he was in the gym! I would’ve had 12 f*cking rings!”
As Bryant explained, he’s told Shaq numerous times that he’s a “lazy ass.” Kobe later went on Twitter to clarify it’s all love and no beef. “There is no beef with @SHAQ,” Kobe said. “I know most media want to see it but it ain’t gonna happen. Ain’t nothing but love there and we too old to beef anyway #3PEAT”
Shaq commented on an Instagram post:
“U woulda had twelve if you passed the ball more especially in the finals against the pistons #Facts.” He added, “You don’t get statues by not working hard.”
