Shaq: Phil Jackson "Orchestrated" Feud with Kobe

If the Shaq-Kobe fued of the early 2000's were a soap opera, would this be the Big Reveal?

Shaquille O'Neal recently talked to Scott Howard-Cooper of the Sacramento Bee for an interview and his big dynamite was that he said that the feud between him and Kobe Bryant was designed by coach Phil Jackson during his playing days with the Los Angeles Lakers. Here's what he said:
...I think it was all designed by Phil (Jackson). Because if you think about it, Phil never called us into the office and said, ''Both of you all, shut the (heck) up.'' Never did that in four years. He knew that when I read something, I was going to get upset. And he knew Kobe was going to always come out and play hard. So I think it was all done by design.
Shaq also said he never had a problem with Kobe Bryant and he even said that they are the best 1-2 punch the Los Angeles Lakers ever had.

What's next? Five years from now, Shaq will say "Pat Riley designed my physical regimen that why I broke down in 2007."
