We all know that O’Neal and James never played together in their prime, however, they did become teammates for one season while being at two completely separate points in their careers. In 2009, Shaq at the backend of his career joined the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

When Shaq joined the Cavs, James had not won a single ring while on the other hand, Shaquille was a 4-time NBA Champion but had lost much of his playing abilities. 

Together, the 37-year-old Shaq and 25-year-old LBJ reached the Eastern Conference semi-finals in the 2009-10 season but lost the series to the Boston Celtics in six games. James averaged 29.7 points, 8.6 assists and 7.3 rebounds and O’neal averaged only 12 points and 6.7 rebounds in the regular season.

Here is the video below of them playing together for a combined scoring:
