Shaquille O’Neal and Scottie Pippen’s careers didn’t intersect long enough for any true on-court rivalry to develop, but through the magic/curse of social media they have initiated a present-day kerfuffle.

SHAQ’S CAPTION: We would beat em by fifty "what you think". Let me know and don't hold back

Shaq started it all with the above Instagram post. The big guy posited that a Lakers’ squad comprised of Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Elgin Baylor, himself and Kareem Abdul-Jabaar would trounce a Bulls team featuring Derrick Rose, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and Horace Grant.

On ESPN First Take, both Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith concurred that Shaq’s all-time Lakers team, as assembled, would beat the Bulls. However, Bayless countered with an alternative Bulls lineup including defensive MVPs Artis Gilmore and Tyson Chandler, that he felt could defeat the Lakers lineup.

Pippen caught wind of Shaq’s boast, and an inane Instagram battle was born.
