Young Kobe and dominant Shaq
Prime Kobe and Prime Gasol
Past-Prime Kobe and Prime Dwight
Shaq and Kobe made 4 finals together and had decent role players.
But this team, if Nash is even 70% of what he was, with Gasol, old Jamison, and old Ron, could be even better, but for a shorter period. If Kobe wins 2 more with Dwight, without Phil and Fish, this will be a tough question. But I am sure most of you will go with Shaq and Kobe no matter what.
I hesitate because if Kobe and Dwight win it now, that is impressive gven the talent in the league now compared to 99-2004.
Kobe/Shaq was the greatest duo ever. Better the MJ/Pippen, Kareem/Magic, Malone/Stockton, etc.
Had their primes been together and egos never got in the way, they could have won 8-10 rings together. Kobe/Pau has nothing on Kobe/Shaq.
