Shaq and Kobe have finally led the Lakers to their first NBA Championship since 1988. Coach Phil Jackson warns the team: once you win your first championship, it gets even harder to muster the fire needed to win the second. That may be true, but not for Kobe. He’s never been hungrier — and he’s determined to make himself the team’s dominant player. Before long he’s supplanted Shaq as the team’s top scorer, but his showboating is pissing off his teammates. Shaq is filled with rage so fierce he can’t perform on the court. As Jackson puts it, the Lakers lack “wellness,” and it makes them easy pickings for teams eager to take down the champions. To salvage the season, the Lakers have to rein in Kobe and help Shaq find his groove again. And a surprise injury could help turn things around…Support us by supporting our sponsors!

It’s official: The Shaq-Kobe Lakeshow has finally come to an end. Shaq’s been traded to the Miami Heat, one of the weakest teams in the league. For the veteran center, the trade feels like a personal slight—one he’ll make them regret. He promises to “bring a championship to Miami.” And true to his word, the very next season, Shaq leads the Heat to a NBA championship. Now he has one more ring than Kobe. But Kobe isn’t daunted. Shaq’s ring is Kobe’s rocket fuel. Three years later, Kobe leads the Lakers to yet another championship. But drawing even with Shaq isn’t enough for Kobe. He won’t be satisfied until he’s outdone the big man. Will their feud never end? Support us by supporting our sponsors! Third Love - Go to THIRDLOVE.com/PLUSONE to get 15% off your first purchase!
Kobe’s life seems perfect. At 24 years old, he’s already a three-time NBA champion, as well as a husband and father. Then, one night in Colorado, he opens the door to his hotel room and lets a young woman in. The next day she files charges of sexual assault.Shaq has a very different sort of problem. He’s 30 years old, no longer the dominant player he once was, and his contract is set to expire.When the 2003-2004 season begins, neither of them are focused on the game. Shaq is on edge because he doesn’t have a new contract. Kobe’s on edge because he’s facing a potential life sentence. Once again, they take it out on each other, and the fragile balance of opposites that brought home three Lakers championships is under threat. Something’s gotta give.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Robinhood - To get a FREE stock, go to plusone.robinhood.comUber Rewards - For terms and to learn more about all the ways you can earn Uber rewards go to Uber.com/rewards
In their early years, Kobe and Shaq each endure snubs from their heroes that give them a ferocious desire to prove themselves on the court. But that’s pretty much where their similarities end. Kobe is the adored only son of an NBA player. Shaq is raised by his stepfather, a former Marine sergeant who rides him hard and is never pleased. Shaq comes to the NBA wanting to dominate and be loved. Kobe doesn’t worry about being loved. He’s got the kind of charm and charisma that leaves people hoping he’ll love them. Shaq is one of the guys. And Kobe, well...he’s kind of a mama’s boy. But they do share one thing. Both men want to be the Lakers’ leader and high scorer—which is gearing up to be a massive challenge for the coach tasked with containing their feud. Support us by supporting our sponsors!

Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant could not be more different when it comes to style, both on and off the court. Shaq is a playful giant with a side hustle as a rapper. Kobe is a kid from Philly with once-in-a-lifetime talent—and an ego to match.But Shaq and Kobe's fates have been intertwined since both players joined the Lakers amid a lot of fanfare. Clashes between two talented players on a sports team isn't new, but the Shaq-Kobe drama managed to stand out. And it also led to multiple basketball championships.  Our six-episode series on the feud and partnership between Shaq and Kobe begins in the mid-1990s, when the Lakers are looking for players with the skill and showmanship to fill a giant Magic Johnson-sized hole in this once-glorious franchise.Lakers' management knows that Shaq and Kobe have the potential to lead their team to victory — but which one will be the real leader? And how will they can get these two superstars to work together to win?Support us by supporting our sponsors!Uber Rewards - For terms and to learn more about all the ways you can earn Uber rewards go to Uber.com/rewards
Shaq and Kobe have been playing together for three seasons now, but they still haven’t managed to win a championship for the Lakers. The issue is clear to everyone: these NBA superstars have a super-sized beef, and it’s having a negative effect on the whole team. At this rate, it’ll take a miracle to settle their feud before the start of next season. Luckily, a miracle worker has just come out of retirement. The Lakers hire 53-year old Phil Jackson, the legendary coach who led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships, to do the impossible: build a championship team out of these battling ballers.

By 1902, the Romanov dynasty has been ruling Russia with an iron fist for centuries, and the Russian Revolution is still more than a decade off. In the countryside, millions of peasants live and work in squalor. Life in the cities is little better. And the two men who together will engineer the country’s radical transformation into a Marxist state still live a continent apart.Leon Trotsky is a young political dissident recently exiled to Siberia when someone hands him a newly published pamphlet. It’s by a 32-year-old Russian revolutionary living in Switzerland, and it’s called “What Is to Be Done?” The pamphlet calls for the creation of a Russian Marxist political party to lead the country’s workers in a violent socialist revolution. The author is Vladimir Lenin.Trotsky doesn’t yet know Lenin, but he’ll abandon his family and cross a continent to find him. In this first episode of our six-part series on Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, we’ll learn how the roles they fill — Lenin as political operator and strategic mastermind, Trotsky as his loyal, maverick lieutenant — set the stage for the drama and betrayals that will eventually rip these comrades apart.Support us by supporting our sponsors!SimpliSafe - Visit SimpliSafe.com/PLUSONE to get free shipping and a 60-day money-back guarantee!Cayman Jack- Cayman Jack provides premium prepared cocktails for those with good taste and little time.

The time for revolution has come. It’s August 1917 and Russia’s provisional government is facing a military coup. Russian troops are closing in on Petrograd and the army’s supreme commander is ignoring the government’s orders to halt the advance. With its grip on power looking shaky, the government knows there’s only one force it can turn to: Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky’s Bolsheviks.But by freeing and rearming the Bolsheviks, the provisional government is about to sign its own death certificate. Because once Lenin and Trotsky have helped prevent the military coup, they’re going to turn their guns on the provisional government and seize power at last.Support us by supporting our sponsors!LinkedIn Talent - To get $50 off your first job post, go to LinkedIn.com/PLUSONECayman Jack- Cayman Jack provides premium prepared cocktails for those with good taste and little time.

And soon after Paul joins John’s first band, the Quarry Men, they bond over something more tragic: the sudden loss of a parent. That shared experience brings them closer together as bandmates and songwriters, and lays the foundation for what will become the Beatles.To learn more about creative partnerships, we recommend Powers of Two: How Relationships Drive Creativity by Joshua Wolf Shenk.

It’s 1970 and the Beatles have broken up for good. But the battle over their legacy is just beginning, especially between longtime songwriting partners John Lennon and Paul McCartney. They argue, sometimes bitterly, over who really wrote their chart-topping songs. It’s a debate that becomes even more complicated when John is gunned down outside his home in 1980 — making him a rock ’n’ roll martyr, and leaving behind a void Paul will struggle for decades to fill.

At the height of their popularity, the Beatles discover a new source of inspiration: LSD. As John Lennon becomes increasingly engrossed in his acid trips, Paul McCartney steps up and begins to take greater control of the band — which John, when he comes back down to earth, isn’t too happy about. But no matter where their heads are at, the two longtime partners come together to push their band’s sound in ever more experimental directions, leading to their twin masterpieces: Revolver and Sgt.

Lenin is looking to become the de facto leader of the new party, but he’s not the only one in the running.

And when a fissure rips through the new party, Lenin and Trotsky find themselves on opposite sides of the divide – just as public opposition to the Russian tsar sparks bloodshed on the streets of St. Petersburg.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Robinhood - Robinhood is giving listeners of One Plus One a FREE stock like Apple, Ford, or Sprint to help you build your portfolio.
