Time To Pony Up, Shaq

When will people learn that the internet is forever? Clearly not soon enough, and nobody knows that better than Shaquille O’Neal. This morning Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr tweeted an unearthed clip of Shaq making some strong statements in regards to his coach at the time, Phil Jackson. He quite literally said he would kiss the feet of any other coach that made four NBA Finals appearances within five years. For those of you that haven’t been counting, Kerr reached that milestone this year after previously making appearances in 2015, 2017, and 2018 as well. But don’t worry, Shaq knows his number is up. He responded to Kerr, letting him know that he’s game.

We love it when athletes make outlandish statements, only to have to back them up after being called out on social media. While we don’t necessarily want to watch Shaq kiss Kerr’s feat, we’re glad someone dug that clip up for the world to enjoy. We’d ask the fans if they want to see some interesting bets go on between our athletes and Team Owners | Fan Captains, but we already know the answer is a resounding yes. But we are curious to hear from the fans what kind of bets they want to see! Should Bobby Bones and Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller make an arrangement for the loser to go on the other’s show and publicly call themselves the biggest loser of the FCFL? What about Marshawn Lynch having to take Richard Sherman or Prince Royce to a VERY expensive dinner at the nicest restaurant in Las Vegas? We’re all ears for your suggestions!
