08:10 AM ET 04.02 | Nearly a decade later, a cold war has given way to good-natured ribbing. In one of the team's signature eras, [Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal] made four NBA Finals appearances with the Lakers, winning three consecutive titles from 2000-02. O'Neal won his only post-Lakers title with the Miami Heat in 2006, and it's something Bryant won't let the big man live down. "I always remind him every time I see him," Bryant, who's won five championships with the Lakers, told Yahoo! Sports. "I saw him after the All-Star Game and said, 'How you doing, 'Four' ?' He said, 'Oh, you [expletive].' [Our relationship is] really good now. We have such a mutual respect for each other."

While this is a humorous, Kobe talks too much. I can't see how Dwight Howard can chose him over Cuban and Dirk. Then Los Angeles will go all out for Bynum who as we know won't fit into the D'Antoni scheme.

For Lakers to grow into a championship team they need to trade Kobe or amnesty him. His attitude is yucky.

Guy's beat up if he acts the **** and beat up if he shares fun facts. Good thing FN GMs aren't paying his salary, you'd all have amnestied or traded him to the the North Korean league.

Mamba is as Mamba does...

Kobe had him run, he realizes that was a mistake now. I assume all of us never made a bad decision or two early on in our lives that we regret now. NO, good.

I find it hard to believe that Kobe can respect anyone.

As hot as Utah has been lately, tonight may be more about a draft pick than anything else...
