Few athletes have ever been as good at winding up foes like Shaquille O'Neal. His latest troll job comes via Instagram, where he posted an all-time Los Angeles Lakers top five including himself, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Elgin Baylor and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and said that team could beat an all-time Chicago Bulls lineup of Derrick Rose, Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman and Horace Grant by 50 points. Yes, he said 50. As you can imagine, the post got plenty of people debating, and that was before Pippen himself joined the fray, calling scoreboard on his Bulls' six titles to the three Shaq won with the Lakers. Then both players called each other overrated sidekicks before Shaq went totally crass and below the belt. We're not declaring a winner here. We're all worse for having watched this spiral out of control. But for the record, we're going with that Lakers lineup, just not by 50. Sorry, Scottie.
Corey Feldman apparently has a band called "Corey Feldman and the Angels," and that band played Sunday night at a Single-A State College Spikes game. There's video that exists if you dare to watch, but what isn't clear from the video is why the Spikes felt the need to apologize to fans afterward for the performance. The concert seems fine, relatively entertaining, and harmless. But we'll also acknowledge it's not the entire set. Whatever happened, neither side seems very happy with the outcome.
