Shaq Says Feud With Kobe All A Marketing Gimmick

Tell me how my ass tastes does have a pretty good ring to it.

Shaq: 'I always did love Kobe'


Shaquille O'Neal, the newly minted All-Star for the Western Conference, has claimed Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson as new allies, saying the longtime rivalry between himself and the Lakers forward was simply a marketing gimmick.


"We helped you hype it up," the Suns center said late Thursday night in an interview with ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. "I know what I'm doing, brother. I'm the smartest player in the world."

O'Neal and Bryant have shared an off-the-court history of bickering through the media that was fueled during O'Neal's last season with the Lakers in 2004, when the duo jockeyed for position as the franchise's next cornerstone.

O'Neal said Thursday the feud with Bryant was nothing more than fodder for driving revenue.

"I always did love Kobe," O'Neal said. "It was all marketing."

Shaq is the funniest dude in the NBA, and i agree, one of the smarter ones in terms of marketing and self promotion.

Shaq's probably like it's all fun and games, while Kobe's like "What. News to me" while he goes into garage plastered with Shaq dartboards and Shaq covered and sized punching bags, with bloody walls from him punching them. (didn't he hurt his hand last year after the Shaq rap video)
