According to an account included in his new book, Shaq Uncut: My Story, Shaquille O’Neal and former L.A. Lakers team member Kobe Bryant once nearly came to blows.
Apparently, Kobe was upset that Shaq wasn’t there to support him after Kobe’s affair was made public.
“Kobe stands up and goes face-to-face with me and says, ‘You always said you’re my big brother, you’d do anything for me, and then this Colorado thing happens and you never even called me,’" the excerpt reads. “I did call him. … So here we are now, and we find out he really was hurt that we didn’t stand behind him. That was something new. I didn’t think he gave a rat’s a$$ about us either way. ‘Well, I thought you’d publicly support me, at least,’ Kobe said. ‘You’re supposed to be my friend.’"
The book is available Nov. 15 on Amazon.com.
