Shaquille O'Neal was never a one-track mind kind of guy. Whether he was "rapping", or "acting," or self-promoting, the Big Fella was a busy man during his 19 NBA seasons, when he also won four championships and three Finals MVPs. So it's not surprising that Shaq is keeping busy in his retirement. He worked with Jackie McMullan on his book, Shaq Uncut: My Story, and he also has his own comedy tour. Shaquille O'Neal Presents All Star Comedy Jam is making its way through the country, and Shaq told the Chicago Tribune which players he'd ideally have on stage as...

Kevin Durant, Others Say Kobe Would Beat LeBron One-On-One (Video)

Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are both pretty good. Any argument about which player is the best in the NBA would likely result in blue faces. However, it is interesting to see that there seems to be a general consensus among NBA players that Kobe is the better one-on-one player. Check out this video of [...]

Michael Jordan x Kobe Bryant Mash Up Art

I suppose folks that believe Kobe Bryant is the greatest player since Michael Jordan to join the league will want this great creative mash up piece by Mina Rizkalla from Australia. That cleverly combines the icons of the past and present into one action shot. Maybe next time LeBron. See more work from Mina Rizkalla here.

Durant, James to meet in flag football? (AP)

With the NBA lockout dragging on, two-time scoring champion Kevin Durant was ready for some football. Flag football. And LeBron James could be interested in joining him. Durant tweeted Monday that he was interested in playing flag football. When fans at Oklahoma State University offered an invitation, he showed up in Stillwater that night to play.

Basketball Never Stops: LeBron Shine

NIKE continues their “Baskeball Never Stops” campaign, this time featuring LeBron James.  They describe it as: For those who love the game like LeBron, Basketball Never Stops. Because players know hardwork and dedication are what the game’s built on no matter the time, day or night.

Kobe Bryant Paid Manny Pacquiao a Visit During One of His Training Sessions

I feel like I’m going to be saying this a lot; NBA players have some time on their hands right now, so you can be sure to see them in the news at various happenings. The latest was Kobe Bryant visiting Manny Pacquiao’s camp to watch him prep for his next fight. I’m still amped from this morning’s Floyd Mayweather ass-kicking on the radio. As for Pacquiao, I expect him to...

On Scott Raab’s Search for the Soul of LeBron James

Being one of the lucky handful of individuals to have received an advanced copy of Scott Raab’s soon-to-be released book, I set out to ferociosuly tear through the 300 pages and provide the readers of WFNY with a semi-difinitive review.  And then yesterday happened. Not 24 hours after the black and gold-covered memoirs landed on the desks of us sporting types, two extremely well...

Kevin Durant Washington Redskins Card

What if Kevin Durant played for the Washington Redskins, is apparently the new what if LeBron James played for the Cleveland Browns. After dominating the random flag football game he recently played in as quarterback and defensive back, scoring four touchdowns and picking off three passes. Panini America decided to have some fun with the KD football madness and designed this Durant...

What We’ve All Been Waiting For: Jimmer Fredette vs. Kemba Walker

Back in the day, real summer battles meant two players going back and forth, D-ing each other up and playing for respect. To be honest, it’s felt like those battles have gotten lost over the years. Thankfully all that’s changed. First Brandon Jennings and Josh Selby brought it back; then Kevin Durant and LeBron James [...]

Shaq says LeBron never listened to Mike Brown in Cleveland

Shaquille O’Neal knows how to sell books. Make friends, not so much. But he’s going to sell copies of his new book. We already brought you excerpts where Shaq throws Kobe Bryant under the bus (and only Brian Shaw had a level head and dealt with the situation, but you don’t want him to be…

Shaquille O'Neal: "No Question In Game 5 LeBron Was Kind Of Out Of It...It was weird"

Turns out Shaq is talking about his time in Cleveland too in his soon to be released basketball memoir after all. In the book titled Shaq Uncut: My Story, co-authored by Jackie MacMullan, O'Neal discusses some of the goings on with LeBron James and the panic-stricken Cavaliers organization during LeBron and Shaq's season together as teammates during the 2010-11 campaign,...

Shaquille O’Neal Says LeBron James Was Not Accountable to Mike Brown in Cleveland

When the Cleveland Cavaliers traded for Shaquille O’Neal before the start of the 2009-10 season, it was certainly met with mixed reviews. But whether it was ever really the smartest move or if it was instead a reactionary move meant only to deal with the Orlando Magic, the fact remains that Shaq represented a symbol of hope in Cleveland. Fans here in Cleveland were smart enough...
