In a hypothetical dream matchup of Lakers legends past and present, Shaq was asked by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show which pair would win in a game of two-on-two: he and Kobe or LeBron James and Anthony Davis? The Big Aristotle responded, “Hell yes. Of course [we’d win]. Cause there’s only one contributing factor. Who’s gonna guard me?” While SI’s Robin Lundberg says it’s a tremendous compliment to LeBron and AD to be compared to the legendary dynamic duo, they haven’t even played a full season together. Shaq and Kobe won three-straight championships together from 2000-02.
