This was nice to see.

After all the bickering and drama that went on between Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal around a decade ago, it’s always great to see them embrace each other publicly whenever their paths cross these days.

Before last night’s game between the Lakers and Warriors, Bryant spotted Shaq in his courtside seat. The Black Mamba then took time out of his warmup routine to approach his former teammate – the pair even shared a quick hug.

Bryant would then go on to score 44 points versus the Warriors, becoming the oldest player to register 40-plus points since Shaq himself went off for 45 back in 2009.
