No Kobe Beef With Shaquille O’Neal

No Kobe Beef With Shaquille O'Neal
"Hey Shaq! How does my pass taste?"

Back like that like Ghostface Killah and Ne-Yo, I’m sorry Kanye West but she no longer “ordered the Kobe beef like Shaquille O’Neal.”

No matter how much the Japanese massage those cows like Gary Vitti’s training table.

This is the remix.

Perhaps you can order some Kobe beef at ‘Shaquille’s’ restaurant across from STAPLES?

But you won’t get 12 onion rings…you’ll get five though. One under Jordan like 24 is one more than 23.

M.J. or King LeBron.

When Shaq and Kobe played together they won more really big rings than Drake and Future, until they fell out more time than Drake and Meek Mill. But now it’s all good like…well Drake and Meek Mill. But that doesn’t stop the media from being on their worst behavior when they think things are going bad.

After the dynamic of duos threepeated like Jordan did twice for Phil Jackson, Shaq took his talents to South Beach after it was clear Kobe wanted to be the alpha for Beta or worse. That’s when a little red corvette met a brick wall as this prince and this L.A. King had a death of a dynasty in this head rolling rock L.A. familia game of thrones way before King James’ version.

But then a remote control sized 15 sneaker fueled by Diesel drove into the Black Mamba’s foot at All Star weekend, he smiled like he was looking at an old friend and Shaq and Kobe clapped hands and dapped up like these two idols had already made friends B.T.S. They even reunited in Los Angeles to be co-MVP’s at an All Star game at STAPLES that had many palm tree pining for a Lake Show redemption reunion (the one Superman they really wanted to return), all before the Big Shamrock closed his career out with the Celtics of all teams.

Post career they’ve chopped it up on podcasts and sat down for hour long ESPN specials remaining close friends reunited. Not to mention statue unveils and jersey retirements. Yet the playful rivalry remains. Without either of them telling each other how their ass tastes. Shaq bet Kobe he couldn’t make 50 in his last ever game…and the son of a bitch went out and hit 60. But yesterday people where trying to put a John and Paul wedge between them like they said Yoko did with some spare quotes looking to be turned into a script for ‘Beef 2’ like DMX and Nas in Hollywood.

Kobe said something back in the day about how he would have won 12 rings if Shaq hit the gym more like people on Instagram these days to which Shaq slyly replied on said social media that he would have 12 rings if Kobe passed more, especially against the Pistons…classic!

But alas Kobe tweeted it was “nothing but love” when it came to the MDE (Most Dominant Ever) to which Shaq replied in kind, throwing shade at new Lakers returning center Dwight Howard (speaking of 12…not his new number “who dis” of 39) like when he did a Reggie Miller like “Spike (or “Dwite”) who” when asked about the Lakers signing back the center by TMZ at a Papa John’s. Howard talking about redemption (redemption? You’re about to average four minutes a game). A Superman Kobe does still have beef with as his emoji response was head in hand all the dead skull shade you need after the Dark Knight’s second Man Of Steel partnership broke up like bad phone signal.

And is it any wonder that Howard is getting this much heat off other Laker fans on social media after he had a Snapchat story of him rolling up to practice in a purple Rolls Royce left on live all day? The open season on trolling was like fish in a barrel. For all the former Lakers that the Lake Show could have got back in purple and gold this Summer-D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson-they ended up with Dwight f###### Howard of all people.

Soft…soft!

Is is a bird? Is it a lame?

But when it comes to Kobe and the real Superman there is a bulletproof bond stronger than steel.

Blazing A Trail Back To The NBA. Portland Land Carmelo

Published

on

Blazing a trail back to the NBA Portland land Carmelo
Red, white and back...

Catching the ball out of bounds as a spectator courtside. Carmelo Anthony is no longer dribbling the ball to the baseline in street clothes. About to put up a shot before smiling and passing it to the referee like, “just kidding!”

‘Bout time.

‘Melo is back and Twitter just won’t calm down.

He deserves the character.

Way to reverse the trends Carmelo.

No New York state of reunion. Or things to do in Denver when your career is almost dead for the Nugget golden era icon. No chance to finally wear that Atlanta Hawk jersey they especially made for him. No banana boat ride with LeBron in Lakeland for the purple and gold to finally get another Anthony they seemed forever linked with like arms of the father of the bride. No matrimony to toast with wine friend Chris Paul back in Oklahoma (although the Thunder and roaring Rockets wish they could have him now) either. But the man who was wedded to rumour for this last year like he always will be the game has ended up blazing a trail back to the NBA with Portland. Back in bloom in Rose City as ‘Melo shows with Rip City it’s not R.I.P. to his career, but the criticism that came to whether he was still capable on court.

Rest peacefully.

The hoodie and headband is back.

Just look at his t-shirt in the above picture. Soaked through with sweat in just another practice run were he just wouldn’t give up or in.

Now it’s time to really ball.

Sure it would have been great to see him basketball befriend the King rival he rookie entered the league with for a true Hollywood end. The Basketball God storybooks would have loved him to retake his Knick throne as the Ewing, Bernard, King of New York even more. But now he’s blazing with the PDX best backcourt duo of Dame Lillard and C.J. McCollum. Joining All Star, legend vets like Pau Gasol to help this Wild West team back to the contender saloon. Last time he left the league, ‘Melo had averages of 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 0.5 assists per game. With percentages of 40.5% from the field and 32.8% from three. And Houston thought they’d have no problem giving him up and keeping CP3 and James Harden like OKC losing an OK3 of him, Westbrook and PG3?

They said he wasn’t in the game like A.I. But he’s a ‘Champion’ like Young Jeezy on a Nicki Minaj song with Nas and Drake. “Big ballin’ like Jeremy Lin (doing so in Beijing), ‘Melo!”

What a difference a year makes.

It’s all A-O.K. now.

Now it’s Jamal Crawford’s turn to crossover back.

No ‘Melo yellow. Or Syracuse orange in N.Y.C. But none of that matters. The contract in Oregon is non guaranteed. But call it a comeback like Dwight Howard back in Lakeland. And you’ve seen what a couple of big dunks, blocks and games has done to his big man Laker legacy. After it looked like he was blackballed from the NBA, let alone Hollywood. But you can always flip the script and bring your big name back. And when it comes to the back of your jersey. Not many come bigger than number 15 or 7 with his new seal.

He’s one of the greats like is a N.Y.K. G.O.A.T. This generation, or the game all-time. It’s time to recognize what the name means. This is not redemption. But a revolution in reunion of a legend and the game he’s given everything to. That’s finally giving him what’s owed to him.

The respect he deserves.

The legacy continues.

You can’t keep a good man down.

Hoods up for this marathon. The hate is gone like a sprint through social media.

All for the love of the hardwood.

Summer run to season come.

Stay ‘Melo. Because your boy is back like he never left.

Don’t call it a comeback…he’s here to stay.

The Montreal native tied a career-high with 15 points, 3 blocks, 2 steals — including 9 points in the fourth quarter.

Norman Powell added 14 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks. Rookie Terrence Davis filled-up the stat sheet with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, playing his first significant action of the season, rounded out six Raptors’ players in double-figures with 10 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists.

Anthony Davis paced the Lakers with 27 points and 8 rebounds. Lebron James added to his triple-double total with 13 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds. Danny Green was held scoreless in 27 minutes.
