Shaq already was a statue for the last 5-6 years of his career.

Shaq legacy is hurt in LA because of two things...

He b*tched his way out yelling at Dr. Buss to pay him after years and years coming in to the season overweight.

He also played for the Celtics....YOU DON'T DO THAT IF YOU WANT TO BE A LEGENDARY LAKER.

I think Kobe and Shaq will get one statue together, I don't think either of them did enough without the other to warrant single statues, together they were unstoppable.



I think that's how these two will be remembered and a statue would be great.

WTF are you talking about???????
Kobe has won 5 titles with the Lakers, he is the franchise's all time leading scorer, has the most All-Star MVP's, Scored 81 points in a game..........You clearly weren't thinking when you typed this, it's ok.

I suppose you think Kareem or Magic won their titles by themselves .....WOW!!!!!!
I think you're better than to say that.

You don't think winning three consecutive titles and having arguably the most dominant peak ever, best Finals performances ever in a Lakers uniform merits consideration? LAL got his entire peak from 1998-03. Faced elimination seven times over that span while Shaq dropped 33/13/3 on 56% FG in those games. With a 59% TS in case anybody's interested. Averaged 30/15/3 over the 58-game playoff three-peat; 38/17/3 in 2000 Finals, 33/16/5 in 2001 Finals, 36/12/3 in 2002 Finals. Was the centerpiece and essential to a 67-win season and 15-1 postseason (along with Kobe).

That's not legendary?

Shaq will get a statue outside the staples Center. He's arguably the most dominant Finals performer in Lakers franchise history. D1cklakers is suffering from Alzheimer disease. The guy is in his late 50's.

Shaq would've only gotten a statue if he'd stayed with the Lakers. Finishing his career as a Celtic, pretty much killed all that
