Kobe Bryant's Best Lakers Teammates Featuring Shaquille O’Neal and Pau Gasol

During his illustrious career with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant got the opportunity to play beside some very talented players. 

As great as he was, Kobe also needed some help when it came to winning those 5 NBA championships, and all that wouldn't have been possible without these teammates.

Derek Fisher

Fisher was, undoubtedly, one of his most beloved teammates. Not only did they win 5 NBA championships together but they also went through a plethora of ups and downs while sharing the backcourt. When Fisher's name comes up, all one can think about is his iconic clutch 0.4 second shot against the San Antonio Spurs.

Rick Fox

Rick Fox was part of the Lakers' three-peat journey. Apart from the hard worker that he was and an exceptional defender, Rick Fox was the glue that kept the franchise together. He is also one of the teammates Kobe was very fond of. In fact, even after retirement, the two often hung out together.

Robert Horry

Robert Horry earned 7 NBA championships in his NBA career, 3 of them came with Kobe Bryant. "Big Shot ROb" was known for his countless clutch shots during his time with the Lakers. The best one being against the Sacramento Kings in Game 3 of the WCF in 2002.

Pau Gasol

When Pau Gasol was acquired by the Lakers, he was the one they were looking for to help Kobe Bryant in getting success in the playoffs. And that's exactly what happened. The Spaniard adjusted very well to his secondary role behind Kobe and won two NBA titles together. Even after Kobe passed, Pau was one who always stood by Bryant's family.

Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O'Neal just had to top this list. In fact, Kobe and Shaq have been considered one of the best duo's in NBA history despite all of their off-court differences. Shaq was the most dominant player and together they won 3 titles. They may have had a sour relationship but eventually sorted things out and became close friends after retirement.
