Los Angeles Lakers great Shaquille O’Neal firmly believes that any discussion about the greatest basketball player of all time must include his former teammate Kobe Bryant.

For Shaq, the trio of Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Kobe Bryant stands out as the top contenders in the GOAT debate.

“The only thing I don’t like about the [GOAT] conversation is they don’t put my boy [Kobe Bryant] in it… Michael, LeBron, or Kobe? Now y’all can debate,” O’Neal said.
