Celtics O’Neal and Lakers Kobe Still Beefing, Apparently

Man, these two just don’t give up.

In a recent interview with ESPN Boston’s Jackie MacMullan, a supposedly slimmed down Shaquille O’Neal made sure to send a few low-key, sorta-weak shots at his old nemesis on the west coast. In response to Kobe Bryant’s extremely funny and refreshingly honest post-finals victory response that winning the championship meant he had one more title than O’Neal, the Celtics big man had this response:

"My first thought [after hearing that] was, 'Well, I guess I'm still relevant,'" O'Neal said. "Kobe is still thinking about me, I guess. I'm still someone to be measured against.

"But I don't compete with little guards. I don't compete with little guys who run around dominating the ball, throwing up 30 shots a night -- like D-Wade, Kobe.

"Now if Tim Duncan said it, I'd be pissed. He's the only guy I'm competing with. If Tim Duncan gets five rings, then that gives some writer the chance to say 'Duncan is the best,' and I can't have that."

Yeah, okay Shaq, whatever your say. You’re not competing with Kobe the same way...
