What happens when two geniuses meet? How do great duos -- like the Beatles' Lennon and McCartney, or Google's Larry Page and Sergey Brin -- manage to change the world together? What about when the sparks start to fly?
Every great collaboration is a love story. It’s intense. Passionate. Along the way, there’s flashes of love, hate, pride, ego, ambition, and brilliance. From Wondery, the company behind the hit podcasts "Business Wars" and "American Scandal," comes ONE PLUS ONE, an ongoing series about the fascinating stories of two great minds coming together to accomplish something they never could on their own.
In each series, hosts Rico Gagliano (Safe for Work) and Faith Salie (CBS' Sunday Morning) will bring you the ups and downs of the world's greatest collaborations, and what we can learn from these pairs in our own work and life relationships.
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.
