WATCH: Kobe Bryant & Shaquille O'Neal Embrace Before Lakers/Warriors Game

In this Lakers news update, it appears the hatchet between Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant and former partner-in-crime Shaquille O'Neal has been at least partially buried.

Prior to Sunday night's Los Angeles Lakers/Golden State Warriors tilt, the two embraced on the court at Staples Center:

Bryant and O'Neal were Lakers teammates from 1996 to 2004, bringing three NBA championships to Los Angeles during their time together.

Following O'Neal's exit from the team, relations between the two were reportedly strained at best. However, it appears that things have lightened up a bit as the years have gone on.
