Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant

Yes, we saw Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant squash their beef — at the suggestion of Hall of Famer Bill Russell — on Martin Luther King Day back in 2006. But after all that went down between the Los Angeles Lakers teammates, from Bryant allegedly forcing O’Neal out of town to Shaq threatening Kobe, we think it’s safe to say that these two prefer to appreciate each other from a distance. Probably no Christmas card exchanges either. (Photo: Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images)
