Summary
"The story of the Lakers dynasty from 1996 through 2004, when Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal combined-and collided-to help bring the Lakers three straight championships and restore the franchise as a powerhouse"-- Provided by publisher
From 1996 through 2004, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal combined-- and collided-- to help bring the Lakers three straight championships and restore the franchise as a powerhouse. From public sniping and sparring, to physical altercations and the repeated threats of trade, it was warfare. The eight years of infighting and hostility were by turns mediated and encouraged by coach Phil Jackson. Pearlman shows how the Shaq-Kobe duo resulted in one of the most enduring, and ever-evolving, teams in NBA history. -- adapted from jacket
