Given MJ's attitude for the time before he won a championship, I can't imagine him coexisting with Shaq in as peaceful of a way as you're talking about.
That's exactly what a Kobe homer would say. MJ was humble enough to play in a system under Dean Smith. He played within the team concept in the Olympics as a youngster and has mentioned that he would dump Shaq the ball every time down the court if he ever had a Shaq on his team. Please stop with the Kobe-Jordan comparisons people. The only thing similar about them is mannerisms which Kobe studied for years and imitated. Make Kobe-Pippen comparisons first.
