-- Shaquille O’Neal opened up on the pain of losing Kobe Bryant on Tuesday night during TNT’s hour-long special honoring Bryant.
O’Neal, who was joined by Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley and Dwyane Wade, broke down in tears while speaking about Bryant.
“I’m going to make them proud, man,” Brown said outside of the Broward County Courthouse on Tuesday, of the kids who look up to him. “I’m planning to come back to the NFL … I think I’ve got a shot.”
“I put myself in a bad predicament,’’ he also said. “I’m out of it now, man. Unfortunate situation, but we don’t make excuses and we’re going to make the best of it.’’
