The ceremony is on March 24, 2017. Who's going for that? It would be great to see the old crew together again for this. Shaq, mamba, horry, fisher, fox and Brian shah. Can't forget coach Jackson.

Good times. I sure miss it

If Shaq designed it, it would probably be him posterizing Javale Mcgee

He deserves it. Even though I hated the way he left the Lakers, the guy was a fearsome force on the floor in the Purple and Gold Armour and was a key cog in the brilliant Threepeat aka The Time When Everything Was Right In The World.

How about a statue of Mozgov next?

Of course he would be in his normal game position:

Seated

with one hand holding a drink toasting the Lakers for the Million$ they gave him and Mitch would be on his knees polishing Moz's shoes, with Jimbo giving his free hand a manicure...

Kobe didn't attend Shaq's jersey being lifted to the rafters and didn't attend Shaq's HOF speech.

It'd be nice if he finally stops being a baby and supports Shaq during the statue unveiling.

Shaq attended Kobe's final game. Kobe has more rings than Shaq.

Yeah they had a bad relationship but Kobe needs to let it go IMO. You won Kobe, you got more rings than Shaq, which I'm sure he's happy about.

Let it go!

That's one way to view it, however we all know Shaq wants to be the center of attention. I think that's why he showed up for all Kobe's big moments. He wanted people to think Kobe couldn't have achieved all that without him. I think Kobe's mindset is, hey this is your moment and not mine.

Eh, we know nothing. Maybe Kobe facetime'd him for an hour the night before and serenaded him with sweet nothings and memories of championship parades past. Or maybe he just texted him a picture of his rings and the caption "how this ass taste?"
