NBA Social Rankings: Shaq Toes The Line, Dion Wears Dion And More
- From his toes to his takes—Shaq is giving it everything he has to entertain us these days. Unfortunately for the Big Hashtag (or whatever), he was topped this week.
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?
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
Mike Brown was asked about Tyronn Lue saying Boston is tougher to defend than Golden State: "That's his opinion. It's cute."— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) May 25, 2017
How are we supposed to wait a week for the Finals?
7. Tracy McGrady
8. Joel Embiid
That's fun basketball right there.. they're really just having fun— Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) May 20, 2017
The modern-day Rasheed Wallace. Both teams had fun.
9. Metta World Peace
How many of YAl are muted but don't know you are muted?— Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) May 20, 2017
Has there ever been a more relatable tweet?
10. Post Malone (Warning: Semi-NSFW)
This was so cool!
