Phil Jackson was able to get Kobe and Shaq to put aside their differences, but that only worked for 4 seasons. After ending their Championship run against the Spurs, they were back at it. All because Shaq suggested that Kobe would pass more until he heals from his injury that he had, and then Kobe went apesh!t.

Keep in mind that Riley brought in a lot of talent but that could just mean "GM of the year award". Has nothin to do with coaching.
