Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant are one of the best duos the NBA has ever seen. Together they helped the LA Lakers win three titles. To top it off, it was a three-peat from 2000 to 2002. And Shaq was awarded the Finals MVP award on all three occasions. While they have had their spats, they eventually patched things up later on.

And recently, comedian Aries Spears was asked about the theory of Jada Smith being jealous of Will Smith. So he compared the duo of Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant to Beyonce and Jay Z.

Aries said, “That’s crazy! You are jealous of your husband! Once that union happens, y’all supposed to be the yin and the yan. Y’all supposed to be everything together…” about the theory, Jada is jealous.

He then said, “Beyonce and Jay Z are Shaq and Kobe. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett are a young Dominique Wilkins and Muggsy Bogues or Spud Webb. You see what I am saying? Like Jay Z and Beyonce are equal level in terms of what they bring to the table…”

Spears then clarified his comparisons, saying that Dominique was the star in Atlanta and that he was the go-to guy for the team. He stated that Spud Webb wasn’t bad, and he had his own style, but Dominique was head and shoulders above him.
