Together, they clinched three NBA titles, leaving fans to wonder what more could have been. During their three-year stint, from 2000 to 2002, the iconic Los Angeles Lakers duo, Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant, secured three consecutive championships, with O’Neal earning Finals MVP honors.

Recently, rapper Rick Ross celebrated their monumental careers by sharing their achievements on Instagram. Four-time NBA champion Shaq, known as ‘Shaq and Kobe’ in basketball lore, reciprocated the appreciation.

O’Neal took to Instagram to share Ross’s story and acknowledge the recognition. This recognition comes in light of Ross and Meek Mill’s latest track dedicated to the two Lakers legends, which Shaq had also previously shared on his Instagram.

Meek Mill, with an estimated net worth of $150 million according to Forbes, boasts multiple platinum albums with global sales exceeding $100 million, cementing his position as a regular presence on the Billboard Top 200 chart. With their new track, Meek Mill is poised to attain the same level of success as his previous chart-toppers.

Following their remarkable three-peat, the Lakers, in the 2003-04 season, assembled a superteam by adding Gary Payton and Karl Malone to their roster. Despite their star-studded lineup, they were defeated 4-1 by the resolute Detroit Pistons in the NBA Finals. This marked a turning point, leading to Shaquille O’Neal’s trade to the Miami Heat, where he secured another championship, capping off his illustrious career.

In the absence of Shaquille O’Neal, the Lakers, led by Kobe Bryant, faced challenging times. They failed to make the playoffs in the 2004-05 season and were eliminated in the first round by the Phoenix Suns in both 2006 and 2007.

The well-documented feud between Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant is now in the past. O’Neal, a three-time NBA Finals MVP, spoke candidly about his time with the late Lakers superstar, highlighting that their chemistry was strong, and they might have claimed additional championships had they continued to play together for more seasons. Kobe Bryant went on to win NBA titles in 2009 and 2010 without his former partner.
