Kobe Bryant pokes a dig at Shaq on Conan O'Brien

Usually, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant prefers to keep his comments on Shaquille O'Neal to himself, knowing it'd only add fuel to what was a contentious relationship when the two played together with the Lakers.

But every now and then, Bryant will let loose, such as after he won his fifth NBA championship and boasted "just got one more than Shaq." Or during his appearance on "Conan," which airs tonight, when asked if Shaq still talks trash to him during games: "If he did, I wouldn’t understand him."

Consider the clip below to be a small preview of hopefully an appearance that provides even more sound-bite worthy answers.

Mr. Laker - You had a swear word in your post

I'VE ALSO had others erased without any swear words. I go back to the comments and they are 'poof' gone!

Sorry about that,
my finger got stuck on the Copy button,

please feel free to Erase 13 of those double copies!

Mr Laker,
We have kind of a Trust system here. Our posts go right through because the Times "Trusts" that we will monitor ourselves and use appropriate language. We now enjoy what's called "Insta Post" but we can lose it if we aren't attentive to appropriate behavior.

Just so you know. You place us all at risk when you use that kind of language. Believe me, it's alot more fun with "Insta Post".

Sorry about all this" mea culpa a thousand times,"

I drank to much caffeine,

it won't happen again!

LOL, ohhhh my. Well, don't say I didn't tell you! LOL.

and now a song that is fitting for this thread

Who are You

Just happened upon this, and have to say that Kobe is soooooo pretentious! Any real Laker fan KNOWS that Kobe wouldn't have those first 3 rings without Shaq. He understood Shaq well enough then. Kobe's ego is so huge that it must clog his ears.

Kobe is nothing without 4 other guys playing defense and feeding him the ball. Go find Mark Jackson's comments during Sunday's broadcast about Kobe not being as good offensively because he actually had to play defense. So true.

Gasol's recent bad games is not all about toughness, it is more about team chemistry. Pau seems to taking it easy and not playing liek he did the first 8 games (REMEBER !!! GASOL was MVP TALK OF THE NBA), ONE will wonder what happened? Not him to blame ALL for it, the fault also goes to WHO DESTROYED HIS DESIRE early in the season, THEAM CHEMISTRY with KOBE I think is the real issue, that killed Gasol's performance.


This is also what nobdy wants to talk about it. FOR obvious reasons...

Posted by: Staples 24 | February 02, 2011 at 06:15 PM
---------------------------

Staples 24 - I respect Pau's game and want him to stay a Laker, but it tirades like this that divide fans. Why over hype Pau and say he's a MVP candidate or should've won the MVP of the finals, etc, etc. He's a very good player, an all-star, a skilled big man and a good Robin to Kobe's Batman. But he is not and will never be Batman. Let's not go overboard here.

For you to blame Kobe for Pau's subpar performances only re-inforces the fact that he is not a superstar. Real superstars don't let other players "kill their performance".

The bottomline is the Lakers need Kobe and Pau to play at a high level to 3peat. We don't need to tear down one to build up the other.

Kobe,

You used to take the high road and let Shaq take the cheap shots. Now Shaq sings your praises and you can't resist getting your digs in. Not good!

speaking of the truth

When you start quoting Mark Jackson you instantly lose credibility.

Yes, Kobe needed Shaq and Gasol, just like Magic needed Kareem, Shaq needed D-wade, etc. Magic never won a championship without Kareem.

For anybody still pondering the Celtics game and Kobe's role:

http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2011/02/02/blogtable-kobe-the-lakers/?ls=iref:nbahpt1

Damn, you guys have no sense of humor. IT WAS A JOKE!!!

I laughed. I am sure Shaq did as well.

oh great more media fodder.. dont b surprised if this is a bspn headline on their front page tomorrow!

Interesting set of events of late.
Kupchak possibly prompted by an inquiring mind, was asked if the Lakers would consider a trade given the state of disbelief running wild in Lakerville.
Kupchak dances around the question, says something about trade deadlines. Jackson possibly prompted by the same inquiring mind, dances around the same tune. Next thing we know the Laker trade talk is all over mediaville and blogcenter.
Who would the Lakers trade? Yep, Artest, the most obvious target.
So, what happens? Stein beats every single inquiring mind in LAville to the "inside source," who leaks the Artest trade rumor. Was it the same "inside source" who leaked the previous meltdown between Artest and Jackson?
Kobe talks to Vecsey and tells him his knee is bone to bone.
What? Do you mean to tell us that there wasn't a single inquiring mind in LAville who knew this?
So, what gives? Why are all these local Lakers "insiders" missing out on the big stories? Why are they getting punked by the BSPN rumor mongers?
Do you mean T.J. didn't know? Plasch? Bresh? Medina? Heisler? the K brothers? Vic the Brick?

Or, could this be another ploy, another mind game from the mindbender guru to get Artest motivated?
Why did Artest say that he has to take a back seat to "the greatest player in the history of the game"? Greatest player in history? What?
And all Kobe said was that he's the conductor who "keeps the train moving."
Is it the "media reports," as Jackson claims? Is it the inside Laker leaker?
Should we all be waiting till June to find out?
Or as Bryant said, "they'll say nothing."
Really?
Meanwhile, bloggers, smack talkers, and Artest haters on talk radio explode with trade talk: Gasol for Melo, Bynum for Melo, Bynum for Love, Artest for a bag of chips, etc, etc. Ridiculous for sure.

kobe was joking but he still remembers.. kobe dont forget.. hes got a warriors mentality of not forgive and forget. deep down it still burns him inside as evident after last championship when he announced "i got one more than shaq".. and i dont blame him one bit.

Some of you folks obviously don't remember Shaq's video referencing Kobe's taste buds and Shaq's posterior after the Lakers lost in the finals to the Celtics in 2008. That is something Kobe is never going to forget it. The man has way too much pride to just walk away from that.

If the Mamba has a wide open shot, damn straight he's going to take it, whether it's on the court or sitting in the guest chair with Conan O'Brien.

@Speaking the truth "Just happened upon this, and have to say that Kobe is soooooo pretentious! Any real Laker fan KNOWS that Kobe wouldn't have those first 3 rings without Shaq."
-
-
Have a sense of humor! It was a joke! Kobe has 2 rings (working on his 3rd) WITHOUT fat Shaq and that's all he wanted to prove!

Nugget Country - good article on the never ending topic of Kobe...to shoot or not to shoot, that is the question!

LAKER TRUTH - tru dat!

And personally, I'd rather they actually ran down and set up in time for some D, than stand around, not box out, not cut, and watch Kobe when none of them are showing a bit of energy, or a bit of drive, and THEN not get back on D.

And what's with Pau? Skill SHOULD be an asset, and for the last two seasons it has been, but now he's going AWAY from the basket on most of his shots, where before he'd use his skill to go TOWARDS it. Yup, the league learned: body him up, and he'll start flinching. That's not soft, that's just not going to his strengths anymore. Use your skill big guy.

And again: box out and get the frickin' rebounds guys! It's not JUST about length, it's about position, too.

And all this practice season/cruisin' to conserve energy bull-pucky. Seriously, wanna conserve energy? Run the O, work the D, get the rebounds, and NONE of you starters will have to play the 4th quarter ever again. THAT'S how you cruise.

Naw, I'm not layin' this on Kobe's door. Not one bit.

Meanwhile, Kobe has the ball in his hands a lot less than other players who no one dares call a "ball-hog." You are right, LRob, this is such a "never ending" topic that it's exhausting and ridiculous. Nevertheless, excellent post LAKER TRUTH. I would love to see someone dig up a bunch of similar blurbs on His Airness who it seems people forget what a "ball-hog" he could be. Unfortunately, His Heirness has never received such deference.

Here's the box score on the one game that people use as the measuring stick of Michael Jordan's illustrious career. It looks like many of Kobe's box scores when the Lakers have won (or lost). You will NEVER hear anyone criticize THAT game as MJ pushed off Bryon Russell for the win on his 35th shot of the game (which Kobe would have been whistled for), yet I suspect if Kobe had a similar performance, the criticisms would be rampant. Where were MJ's teammates as he dished out 1 assist to go along with his 1 rebound?

http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/199806140UTA.html

Oops! Upon further review of the box score, MJ's teammates were excellent! They shot a lot higher percentage than he did; he just took 35 out of the 67 shots. That was a deep team. The Jazz, on the other hand? meh.

Finally, someone spoke what I have been saying all along---Can anyone understand Shaq beside himself? Thanks, Kobe.

yes, Jac.

is anyone actually making this into a real controversy or a serious diss? really?

Just admit it -

We love our annual Laker drama, don't we?

Don't we?

Say, I may have forgotten how many Championships MJ before Scottie Pippen came along? Someone remind me, thanks.

"the truth is that an overall roster that doesn’t match his overall drive (never mind ability) is more to blame.

Stay Thirsty my Laker roster and "JUST DO IT!"

COULD YOU BLAME KOBE FOR HAVING AN EGO!!! WOULDNT YOU IF YOU WERE THAT GOOD..AND ITS TRUE KOBE COULDNT OF WON MAYBE 2 OF THOSE RINGS WITHOUT HIM BUT SHAQ OR ANYONE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER ON THE LAKERS WOULD OF NOT WON any RINGS WITHOUT KOBE......

CELTICS SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 LAKERS ALL DAY LONG NO1 ON THE CELTICS COULD AMOUNT TO KOBE MAYBE THREE OF FOUR OF YOUR PLAYERS PUT TOGETHER ....KOBE WILL BE A TRUE LEGEND EVEN FIFTY OR SIXTY YEARS FROM NOW...

GO KOBE ANOTHER YEAR ANOTHER RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kobe actually has a wicked sense of humor that I love.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

Yeah, what's with all this joking around on Conan? Everyone knows that show is about serious X's and O's only. So it's getting down to 19 degrees tonight in Austin and the city begam rolling blackouts today... to preserve energy. Seems that some people have been selfishly using their heaters. Yeahhhhh.

'Gasol's recent bad games is not all about toughness, it is more about team chemistry. Pau seems to taking it easy and not playing liek he did the first 8 games (REMEBER !!! GASOL was MVP TALK OF THE NBA), ONE will wonder what happened?

Posted by: Staples 24 | February 02, 2011 at 06:15 PM

A thoughtful comment. Are you listening Laker boys and girls?
Pau is extremely bright, extremely talented, and tough enough.
He's a Spaniard. Have any of you watched those guys play?

Your little dream companion needs to spend less time making
commercials and talking crap about other players on Conan,
and start working on improving the chemistry of 'his' own team.
He is the almighty 'Saint' isn't he?

Hey, are YOU listening Koab?

Your horses are probably too old to have the kick
they're going to need to pull it out this year,
but for once in your life....
be a real leader.

Go Kings!

Posted by: LAKERS#1 | February 02, 2011 at 11:11 PM

Well...there it is.

The first two sentences pretty well sum up the 'mentality of Laker fans'.
Kind of an oxymoronic joke isn't it?

You're quite correct that the Saint couldn't have won his rings
without the blob, and then later without Pau.
Without a doubt.

But as I recall #1
(and, oh, please do correct me if I'm wrong),
the big pile won a ring with a true team leader
not named Kobe,
in Miami, did he not?

Furthermore, it's possible
(though unlikely if Wade/Lebron/Bosh have anything to say about it)
that the stink heap will win yet another one this year...
too, and again without your dream-boat.

Kobe won't win another ring,
but he can still be your hero,
forever, and ever.

Go Kings!
Go SF Giants! (Spring Training just around the corner)

Sonnybelfast

Carmelo is a loser. An incredible player... but a loser.

I hope he's never a Laker.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.

GO LAKERS!!!

Posted by: Jon K.


Jonny boy K...you, Artest, Fisher and MM are all frickin LOSERS !!!!!

Here's a little something to start your day...
calm you down, give repose,
and prepare you for imminent destruction.

http://www.wimp.com/sweetaquarium/

I have a strong sense that
San Antonio is going to spank you,
I mean, really expose you.
How about you?

Oh...but, I know...it won't really count...
unless you win.

I'm just wondering how the idiot in the Laker shirt,
who keeps waving and talking to the fishies,
and can't keep his eyes off the camera,
got into a place of such respectability.

Go Kings!
Go San Francisco Giants!

Sonnybelfast

LAKER TRUTH,

Thanks for the Nuggets Country repost.

Good thing media-men nowadays realize Kobe is doing what he does only for the love of the "W", Winning that is.


LAKERS ALL DAY!!!

THE GUARANTEE IS HERE.

1.) "We're going to keep moving and in June, they'll say NOTHING." --Kobe Bryant

2.) "I'm still prepared in any series to put this team against ANYBODY." --Phil Jackson

Now, I'm looking forward for the 4-peat!!!

LAKERS ALL DAY!!!

SNAQuille deserves all the digging from Bean Junior.

KARMA, isn't it?


LAKERS ALL DAY!!!

Please mark my words,

WE WILL WIN AGAINST THE SPURS TODAY.


LAKERS ALL DAY!!!

IMO, not a big deal what Kobe said - its just playful teasing. He was asked the question in the context of a comedy show. The question was begging for a wisecrack remark.

Where are you Larry?

Definitely not in the 'Southland',
which offers up at least some explanation
about your decency and intelligence.

So...do you think you can compete with the Spurs today?
Bat 44 has guaranteed a win.

Even though the game won't count (if you lose)
them is some pretty bold words.

Go Kings!

Sonnybelfast

By the way Larry...bundle up with the little woman,
and do stay warm.

Hire the neighbor to do the shoveling...

That's an order!

Sonnybelfast

Maybe Kobe needs to step back and stay off the Variety shows & consentrait on wins against teams above .500. This Laker team is 2 players away from having another 3peat! Unload Fisher n Artest or Mr Broken Down Again Bynum. And bring in some players who can shoot the freaken ball!

@SonnyBelfast, How you be my brother? I'm in Chicago the model for decency and honest elections...LMAO!! If Jovbatz44 guaranteed a win...that's good enough for me. And yes, yes it is true Sonny. The game will only count if the Lakers win, isn't that amazing? LOL! Yes, me and the 3 time Mrs. Mamba24 have figured out quite a few unique ways to stay warm and even create a little electricity of our own. Lol!! All right enough of that, this is the family hour and this is ....GAME DAY BABYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!.

Question for the day:

(You have 2-seconds to answer correctly)

Which National Basketball Association team
has been a perennial contender or champion over the last decade,
does not cheat through blatant and favored treatment from the league,
has players who stay out of trouble and are generally a class act,
and doesn't need a $95 million dollar payroll to stay in the hunt?

Of course!

That would be the Los Angeles Lakers! BuzZzZzZzZzpfffhffft

The San Antonio Spurs??? Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding!!!!!!!!!

The Spurs...a team any community of moral standing can be proud of!!!

Go Kings!
Go San Francisco Giants!

Sonnybelfast

We here in Massachusetts love Shaq. He has been a model citizen since coming here, as well as a valuable asset to our beloved Celtics.

boynamedsue,

Agree. Kobe's comment for Snaq was meant as a joke.

But jokes are supposed to be half-meant. Besides, after all the digging he made(year-in, year-out) towards Kobe, Snaq deserves it.


LAKERS ALL DAY!!!

Larry, you got it right:

"The game will only count if the Lakers win, isn't that amazing? LOL! "

AMAZING! LOL.


LAKERS ALL DAY!!!

And before I go...

To my Aussie friends...so happy to hear the storm did not come in
at high tide. You will fair well. America is here to assist in any way.

"Wilt Chamber-mumble-grumble-mumble-grumble-neezy."

Kobe:
"Yeah, I do have 5 rings... with the same team."


DBDH!

Sonnybelfast,

This is personal comment for you. I got it, you could not get over game 7 in Western conference where Lakers beat Kings after being down, what 17? When our Lakers get 2nd 3peat, I'm sure you're not going to be here to admit anything. You all trolls identical. When slightest sign of turmoil you shows up in numbers only to disappear when out team winning at all.

KobeMVP888: "Meanwhile, Kobe has the ball in his hands a lot less than other players who no one dares call a "ball-hog." You are right, LRob, this is such a "never ending" topic that it's exhausting and ridiculous. Nevertheless, excellent post LAKER TRUTH. I would love to see someone dig up a bunch of similar blurbs on His Airness who it seems people forget what a "ball-hog" he could be. Unfortunately, His Heirness has never received such deference."

Well, I can tell you I lived through that era on a daily basis and can tell you he was always being called a ball-hog by those in the know. We just don't have the google ability to bring taht old news up like we do these days. He was more of a ball hog than anybody before or since, and he also had great offensive and aggressive weapons to pass to, also. No weak sister shots going up from his crew. MJ would have none of that! He also knew he was the best on the floor and why give it up to somone who would not be able to get a shot up with as high a percentage as he. Sound familar......?

MM- Plenty of other Swear words in other posts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do you decide who to ban!!!!!


Why are some deleted and some aren't!!!!!!


What Say YOU n0W Medina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please break the Silence and let us know what is and is not Acceptable/then stick to it EVERYTIME!

Not only when it's convenient!!!!!

What say you Laker Nation On Finical Medina Erasing some Posts but Not Others!?

Mornin' all, fun game tonight.

I think the Spurs got caught looking ahead to this matchup, losing up in Portland on Tuesday. Kinda like the Lakers/Celts did last week.

Obviously, it's Feb 3rd. It's not a 'must' win - however the Lakers DO need to start giving a better 48-min effort against the big boys. Magic said it best the other day when he reminded us that at the least his showtime squads would show up ready to play the big games.

LAKER TRUTH: Love those quotes. That is in stark contrast to Henry Abbott who has ripped Kobe for years. It's not worth reading his column, lets just say his cup runneth over with the hata-aid...

Kobe really can't win. He distributes and gets teammates involved then he's sulking. His teammates go into passive mode, he takes over and he's a ballhog. It's incredible.

All it does is cement even further in my mind that he is far and above the best in the game, I take all the rips as compliments. The fact is, we're witnessing the most talented, well-rounded offensive player in the history of the game.


AS ALWAYS - AND FOREVER - GO LAKERS!!!!!!

Mornin' crue!

As far as I'm concerned, Kobe can poke digs at Shraq all day, every day and twice on Sunday. What's it gonna do? Motivate the green slob? What - he's gonna lose 200 pounds and be able to run the court? or elevate? HAHAHA!! Right.

Kobe's earned the right to poke digs at Shraq. The only concern I have about that is if he pokes his finger at him, it'll disappear into mounds of fat never to be seen again. And we need Kobe to have at least a couple of working fingers to win this thing.

Jeez. Give the Mamba a break. After all the crap Snaq pulled on him, Kobe's gotta diss him back without hearing about it in a negative way from the fans. It was CONAN for crying out loud. You know - it's FUNNY. And yeah - Jon K's right - Kobe's got a wicked sense of humor. Maybe some of y'all need to get one of your own.

Good Mornin, justanothermambafan(Head of the Mamba Clan)...Game day Babyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!. How are you this wonderful Game day Morning?

I'm good, Larry - you?
(BTW - shouldn't you be saving your 'babyyyy's' for the 3peat Mrs.Mamba24?) LOL!!!

>>>We love our annual Laker drama, don't we?

And someone who doesn't put "truth" in his user name speaks the real truth.

It wouldn't be a Lakers championship run if there weren't some people panicking over every loss and coming up with trade scenarios in the late winter early spring.

I haven't done my annual Lamar Odom trade ideas post this year (as I've done for the last 4 or 5 years), but Lamar has been one of the most consistent Lakers.

>>>We here in Massachusetts love Shaq. He has been a model citizen since
>>>coming here, as well as a valuable asset to our beloved Celtics.

And two years from now, when Shaq is publicly criticizing Pierce, Garnett, and Doc, you'll gain some fresh understanding.

Tired of people saying Kobe wouldn't have a ring without Shaq. Like Shaq non-freethowing azz would have a ring without Kobe or D-Wade....If you're the star of a team and u can't be on the floor the last seconds of a game cause they might foul you, you're not a star!!

Kobe is a great basketball player, not much of comedian, but a great basketball player, and that team has been a rock for the last decade. Conan is funny, but a bad basketball player probably, even if Kobe tries to be funny, he did put up a good attempt, but all his jokes are at someone's expense. Working at DISH Network at night makes it hard for me to catch Conan live, and I was regulated to watching it on the DVR next day, took care of that with a Sling Adapter, now I stream Coco to my phone live where ever I am
