Shaquille O’Neal did not take kindly to Kobe Bryant’s recent comments referring to him as “lazy.”

During a recent interview with Patrick Bet-David at the PHP Agency Convention in Las Vegas, Bryant said that if O’Neal had stayed in shape more consistently and remained his teammate, the Los Angeles Lakers likely would have 12 championships.

“I wish he was in the gym!” Bryant remarked.

Beyond the fact that his personal resume would have been bolstered, Bryant believes that O’Neal remaining with the Lakers and being consistently in shape would have resulted in him going down as the greatest player of all time.

“He’d be the greatest of all time,” Bryant said plainly.
