VIDEO: The Alternate Future Where Kobe And Shaq Stayed Together
The starting lineups were announced for the NBA All-Star Game Thursday night and the rosters are representative of the league's next generation of players with faces like Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis and Jimmy Butler.
As much as All-Star weekend - which is fast approaching on Feb. 17 to Feb. 19 - is looking ahead, it's also a good time to reminisce. In some cases the nostalgia of All-Star weekend might even lead to fans wondering what could have been.
Wait no more. We now know the alternate future as if one of the most notorious breakups in NBA history, the split between Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, never happened.
The outcome of the Lakers winning two to three more championships is definitely believable, especially because the Shaq-Kobe duo was more lethal than the Shaq-Dwyane Wade team up.
Now that this is cleared up, hopefully Lakers fans whose insomnia stems from the PTSD of the breakup can sleep more soundly. I know I will.
