Scottie Pippen and Shaq keep proving they’re retired

Since it’s a slow time during the sports calender, twitter has become the most interesting outlet for wasting a good amount of time during the work day.

Matt Barnes wants to fight Serge Ibaka:

Stephen A. Smith can’t keep his mouth shut:

And Scottie Pippen and Shaq are arguing, and arguing, and arguing:

Shaq started the fight by saying he’d take the LA Lakers all-time starting five over the Chicago Bulls all-time starting five any day of the week.  In fact, he said the Lakers would beat the Bulls by 50.

Simple math:  5 HOFers (LA) beats 3 HOFers (Bulls).

Even though Shaq is obviously correct (not sure about the 5o point win though), Scottie felt the need to stand up for his squad:

Sorry @shaq but I don’t get caught up in hypotheticals. All I know is we won 6 titles, twice the amount you claimed while in LA…

Shaq bounced back:

Sorry @scottiepippen I don't believe in hypotheticals either, but I seen most of those final you did ok , but this guy did most the work . #youwereok steve kerr and Ron harper deserve more credit than you , remember I WAS BATMAN YOU WAS ROBIN , I was PUFFY YOU WAS MASE...

Scottie snapped back at Shaq like a rubber-band bouncey ball:

Speaking of being a sidekick... if I recall correctly you know a thing or two about that as well. @shaq

Shaq is RELENTLESS (and bored):

Then Scottie dropped the mic (at least for today):

Game over, @shaq. All that's ever mattered to me is winning and we did plenty of that in Chicago...

I love when grown-up, former athletes take to twitter and prove how good the retired life is.

Hickory Pacers?

When you think of Indiana basketball you probably think of two things: “Hoosiers” and Larry Bird.

The Indiana Pacers have put these two ideas together in a marketing ploy sure to make every middle-aged white man in the state of Indiana cry tears of joy while simultaneously yelling “RUN THE PICKET FENCE!”.

To answer your pending questions, YES that’s the Hickory High School uniform from “Hoosiers”, and YES it appears that George Hill’s head-forest is doing it’s best Sisqo impression.

The Pacers will wear these special throwback uni’s this upcoming season on several, yet to be announced, “special occasions”.  A simple and effective marketing ploy to attract more white people to Pacer games I suppose.  Maybe they can get a guest appearance from Gene Hackman or the guy who played “Jimmy Chitwood” too, I’m sure they’re both available.
