While it is true that sometimes, highly talented athletes do not play well with their team mates.  None has exemplified the degree of animosity more so than the feud between Kobe Bryant and his former L.A. Lakers team mate, Shaquille O’Neal.  The feud started not long after Bryant joined the L.A. Lakers in the late 1990s and has continued ever since.  Despite rumors that the feud between the 2 ended in 2006, O,Neal was caught on video last month in a NYC dance club, rapping about Bryant in profane terms.  When the video surfaced, O’Neal made no apology, instead claiming he was “freestyling”.  The incident led Arizona’s Maricopa County’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a controversial figure himself, to renege O’Neal’s honorary deputy title.

To highlight this off-season rant and the escalating feud between the 2 players, Packer Shoes of New Jersey created this t-shirt.  Available in white or heather gray, the front feature a replica of Maricopa County Sheriff Department badge printed in semi-metalic ink.  Imprinted in the back is one of the more tone-down statement made by O’Neal during the notorious event, “Kobe, tell me how my a** tastes…”

Both are currently available at both Packer Shoes locations.
