NBA Rumors: LA Lakers Shaquille O’Neal says Lakers would beat Chicago Bulls with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen by 50

While the biggest NBA free agents like DeAndre Jordan, LeBron James, Kevin Love and LaMarcus Aldridged have found their respective homes, the legendary Shaquille O’Neal has thrown something for the NBA fans worldwide.

Shaq used his Instagram account to tell the world that the best of the Lakers would beat the best of the Chicago Bulls by 50 points. Shaq posted his starting five with the Lakers that included himself, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Elgin Baylor. On the other hand, the Bulls comprises of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Derrick Rose, Horace Grant and Dennis Rodman.

Though there might be one of the biggest debates for all the NBA fans on what Shaq claimed and posted, still he believes that the Lakers would dominate by 50 points.

Interestingly, Scottie Pippen has dropped a solid punch on Shaq when he posted about the two three-peat of the Chicago Bulls and saying, “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…”

Truly, Pippen has the numbers against Shaq when it comes to championships. Pippen and Jordan won two three peats that would be difficult to match.

Shaq doesn’t want Pippen to say the last words and he posted about Pippen as being the Robin while Shaq was the Batman when played with the Lakers. Shaq posted, “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…”

Shaq even added about T-Mobile’s sidekick phone with Pippen on the screen.

Pippen responded through Shaq’s weakness – the free throw shooting.

Easy big fella… if only you were as good at free throws as you are talking smack! @shaq

The Chicago Bulls star also added what could have been a slamdunk reminding Shaq that he was the sidekick of Anfernee Hardaway in Orlando, Kobe Bryant in LA, Steve Nash in Phoenix, Dwayne Wade in Miami, and LeBron James in Cleveland.

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

Shaq has the answer reminding Pippen that he lost a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter without Michael Jordan behind him. He posted a video of the Western Conference Finals in which Pippen was guarding Bryant, who passed an alley hoop to Shaq.

Will the Lakers really beat the Bulls with the lineup that Shaq posted?
