Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal reconnected last year.

But does Shaq speak for Kobe now?

Shaq, via TMZ:

“Kobe coming back. You heard it here first.”

Before rumors about Kobe and LeBron James uniting on the Lakers really took off, Vanessa Bryant shut them down:


I, for one, am shocked a 39-year-old who was already transitioning into his next career while still playing, had the perfect sendoff, has flourished in his new career, has been honored as retired player and said he didn’t miss playing “even a little bit” isn’t coming out of retirement.

If we can’t trust Shaq, whom can we trust?
