Kobe and Shaq - The Lakers' Attack

The LA Lakers have won three straight NBA titles - thanks to basketball's greatest one-two combo - Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal. Here's a closer look at Kobe and Shaq - the two stars of the Lakers' Attack.

Strength vs. Style

  • Shaquille O'Neal scores by powering his 300 pound body to the hoop. His size makes him almost impossible to defend which is why he gets fouled so much.
  • Kobe Bryant has a more stylish game. He gets his points by gliding to the hoop or taking medium-range jump shots.

    Mosque vs. Meat

    • Kobe was named after a type of steak (Kobe) seen by his parents on a menu before he was born.

    Rap vs. Rome

    • Shaq spent several years learning to rhyme and has recorded five rap albums.
    • Kobe spent eight years of his childhood in Italy and is fluent in Italian.
    • New Skool vs. Old Skool

      • Shaquille O'Neal went to Louisiana State University after high school. He left after his junior year when he was drafted by the Orlando Magic in 1992. He took courses during the summer and graduated in 2000 with a B.A. in General Studies.
      • Kobe never went to college. He was drafted in 1996 from Lower Merion High School by the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets then traded him to the Lakers for Vlade Divac.

      Superman vs. Kobe-Wan Kenobi

      • Shaquille O'Neal is obsessed with Superman and even has a Superman tattoo.
      • Kobe Bryant's favorite movie of all time is Star Wars.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
