The Final Horne: In the end Kobe won the war with Shaq

 

Clarksville, TN – I was on Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal’s side during the epic and legendary Shaq-Kobe Bryant Wars that were waged earlier this century. The pair formed the greatest duo the NBA had had seen since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were leading the Bulls to six championships in subsequent three-peats in the early and then late 1990’s or certainly since Hulk Hogan and the ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage formed the then WWF’s famed ‘Mega Powers’ tag team in the late 1980’s.

Being apart of Shaq’s Army was cool. And why wouldn’t it be when you’ve got a 7-foot-1, 325-pound general leading the way. No one doubts Shaq is the most dominate center of our time and is hard to argue that he may be the greatest center to ever play the position. «Read the rest of this article»
