On the day of his entrance into the Basketball Hall of Fame, there was only one topic worth discussing around the Los Angeles Lakers: the most quotatious big man himself, Shaquille O’Neal. With that in mind, hosts Harrison Faigen and Antony Irwin took a walk down memory lane as the engine that fueled the Lakers’ 2000-02 threepeat stands on the precipice of officially becoming one of the NBA’s immortals.

What was Shaq’s ultimate legacy with the Lakers? What was his biggest impact on the way the game is played today? Was his relationship with Kobe Bryant as dysfunctional as it appeared to be while the two were teammates? Harrison and Anthony discussed all that and more on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
