It started as an innocent discussion; the all-time Bulls vs. the all-time Lakers. Shaq threw it up on Instagram — probably as a joke — as a way to needle some of his NBA friends. Like many, he believes a team comprised of Magic, Kobe, Kareem, Elgin and himself would crush Jordan, Pippen and the like.
As many of you know, nothing on the Internet is innocent. Over time, everything evolves into Sodom and Gomorrah, with fire and brimstone raining down like Lance Stephenson photoshops.
Pippen was quick to call Shaq’s opinion a hypothetical. Nothing more.
