Shaq Once Tried To Pay Isaiah Rider $10K To Fight Kobe Bryant

Total Pro Sports

The 2001 Lakers team was one of the greatest teams to hit the NBA court, having Phil Jackson as the head coach and a team with solid role players to complement Shaq and Kobe.

Practices were essentially playoff games, especially when Shaq and Kobe got into it.

One particular story of a practice came from guard Isaiah “JR” Rider, who famously got destroyed during 1-on-1’s and in team practice against Kobe. What Rider could do like no other on the team was bring out a fury in Kobe and get under his skin.
