Shaquille O'Neal reached the pinnacle of basketball Friday night, getting inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. So, of course, he brought jokes to the podium. The best involved his ex-teammate, Kobe Bryant.
"Last, but not least, the great Kobe Bryant," O'Neal said while thanking people. "A guy that would push me to help me win three titles in a row. But also help me get pushed off the team and traded to Miami."
