Yes, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant were by far the best players involved in the Los Angeles Lakers' Three-Peat from 2000-2002. They didn't do it without plenty of help, though. The dynamic duo had plenty of talented players by their side for each of their title runs. These three Lakers players did more than just fill space beside Shaq and Kobe. They deserve much more respect for their outstanding contributions during the Lakers' dynastic run. 3. Ron Harper Championship experience can never.
