The real prob stemmed originally from the personality differences Kobe being more reserved and serious with Shaq being out going and comical.

And Shaq being the leader took offense to that and called Kobe out for disrespecting him.

It was not Kobe wanting more shots and being jealous of Shaq or Shaq not wanting to give Kobe more shots and being selfish. It wasn't basketball reasons they just really didn't like each other on a personal level at the time.
