Shaq — There's No Debate … Kobe Should Retire #8 (VIDEO)
Call him old school … but Shaquille O’Neal says when it comes to retiring Kobe Bryant‘s jersey, there’s only one option … his ORIGINAL number … the ocho.
The debate has been raised in the Lakers front office — since Kobe dominated in both #8 and #24 … and team officials are still undecided about which number to hang in the rafters at Staples.
But Shaq says there’s no decision — ya gotta go with the original number. Then again, Shaq’s probably biased — since he won 3 rings with Kobe in his #8 days … and never played with him as #24.
There’s more to the clip … Shaq also says he’d be down to have Kobe on “Inside the NBA” after the season.
