Friday May 12th, 2017

Welcome back to The Crossover’s weekly social media power rankings, where we determine who won the week off the court. This week, Tyronn Lue dreams big, Draymond Green subtweets a fellow All-Star, and Shaq makes a questionable fashion choice. Also, I'm filling in for Kenny Ducey (DNP-REST) this week!

We’ll rank performances from best to worst. Here’s how the week shook out:

1. Tyronn Lue

It’s pretty clear that it’s been a while since Tyronn Lue’s had a high-five routine. That’s what happens when your career highlight is another player stepping over you.

2. Draymond Green

Draymond calls Kelly Olynyk dirty. Isaiah Thomas responds it’s “a joke” that Draymond’s talking about playing dirty. So Draymond subtweets the Celtics’ point guard… Petty wars reign supreme.

3. Ted Leonsis

Leonsis also owns the Capitals… Tough week.

4. Ray Allen

Ring count: Ray 2, Paul 1, KG, 1.

5. Charles Barkley

Shoutout to Chuck. This is the most entertaining show on TV. And if you don’t believe me…

6. Shaq

Cargo shorts confirms Shaq has accepted his old man status.

7. Joel Embiid

The gift that keeps on giving.

8. Dirk Nowitzki

Definitely keep.

9. Jordan Crawford

So this means Big Baller Brand has made *whips out calculator* 495 dollars?

10. Troy Daniels

That feeling when you put a Vince Carter jersey on.. @jumps_story
