Inside the NBA has officially stopped even pretending to be about basketball anymore. Last week we brought you the story of Shaq not knowing the difference between pierogies and kielbasa, and this week Inside the NBA sought to correct his error.

After speaking with Polish basketball player Marcin Gortat, Shaq confirmed that pierogies are, in fact, dumplings and that you don't barbeque them. The producers brought in food from New Polish Restaurant in Atlanta and Shaq finally got to sample pierogies. Then, the entire nation of Poland cringed as Shaq asked for barbecue sauce.

Overall, it was a pretty educational night on Inside the NBA.... unless you wanted to be educated about, you know... the NBA.
