When Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal were feuding, it was one of the most talked about topics in the NBA. And their rivalry wasn’t pretty to watch. But despite Shaq slapping Kobe once and writing a message just to spite him after Kobe won his fourth title, they made up in the end.

When he came into the NBA with the Orlando Magic, Shaq earned himself the nickname ‘Superman’ for his freakish athleticism and arguably superhuman strength. Dwight Howard came into the NBA in the 2000s and started to make a name for himself. He also started calling himself ‘Superman’ and Shaq seemingly did not like that. This was just the start of a decade-long feud and the two still haven’t made it right with each other.

Shaq revealed his thoughts about his former rival Scottie Pippen on ‘The Dan Patrick’ show.

Shaq declared himself to be the superior player of the two with an unusual analogy. He said, “I don’t let bums disrespect me. Yeah, he was a great player, but I’m the bridge, he’s the water. He will always be under me. Every now and then, he will rise to the occasion to get to the same level as the bridge.”
