Shaq’s greatest teammate, Kobe Bryant has gone through two phases of his career: No. 8 and No. 24. When he wore 8, he played the Robin role to Shaq, winning three championships. However, after his situation in Colorado, he rebranded himself as the Black Mamba. To change everyone’s perception, he changed his number. Everything with 8 was over. Kobe’s won his sole MVP in no. 24, two titles and scored 81 wearing his current number.
