Welcome back to The Crossover’s weekly social media power rankings, where we determine who won the week off the court. This week, Shaq turns up the heat in his beef with Chuck, Dion Waiters wears a shirt with Dion Waiters on it, and Post Malone jams to “White Iverson” with Allen Iverson. We’ll rank performances from best to worst. Here’s how the week shook out:

1. Tristan Thompson

Okay, so there’s a bit of recency bias here, but Thompson may have stolen the week with his priceless reaction behind LeBron. Who didn’t make that same face when they heard LeBron say he didn’t go bald?

2. Shaq

From this angle u c my man from reebok @albenz11 was floppin like a mug

From an insane pickup dunk, to showing his disgusting feet, to ripping Charles Barkley, it was a monumental week for The Big Hashtag, or whatever.

3. Dion Waiters

The shirt, though!

4. Mallory Edens

Not taking any sides here, but this response from the daughter of the Bucks’ owner was SPICY.

5. Kenny Roda

The Cleveland talk show host had quite the week.

6. Mike Brown

How are we supposed to wait a week for the Finals?

7. Tracy McGrady

8. Joel Embiid

The modern-day Rasheed Wallace. Both teams had fun.

9. Metta World Peace

Has there ever been a more relatable tweet?

10. Post Malone (Warning: Semi-NSFW)

Real life
