The video was essentially the same speech that he gave during the jersey retirement ceremony, but it included a few clips of huge plays from some of his teammates over the years.
The clips included Derek Fisher’s shot with 0.4 left against the Spurs, Robert Horry’s 3-pointer against the Kings, and the alley-oop that Kobe threw to him in Game 7 of the WCF against the Portland Trailblazers.
Shaq finished the video saying that his time with Kobe had much more positive than negative and the good ultimately outweighed the bad. He followed that by saying, “You were my teammate and my brother, and I’m glad to call you both.” You can check the full video below.
