Robert Horry Blames Phil Jackson For Kobe-Shaq Feud

 (CBS) — Just when we thought we had heard the last of the Kobe Bryant-Shaquille O’Neal feud, former teammate Robert Horry dropped in his theory about the rift between the former teammates. Telling Sports.ru, a Russian magazine:

“I think Phil Jackson started that feud. It happened many times that after team practice he would say, “Kobe said this about Shaq, and Shaq said that about Kobe… We couldn’t believe how could that happen, because just the day before we saw them together, jumping on one another. Phil liked it when there was conflict of some sort.

I always tell people; if you look at those championships, you’ll see who were the closest players on the team. Normally those are the guys who are the first to hug each other. And when we were winning, it was always Shaq and Kobe who hugged. I think this will answer your question. Later it was blown out of proportion by the media and both players started doing something that didn’t make sense. ”

    it wouldn’t surprise me, people can sometimes be devious and like to start trouble, by causing conflict. Maybe he thought they would play better if there was strife on the court. People can be shady.
