Actor/comedian Will Ferrell posed as a security guard at Tuesday night's Los Angeles Lakers game and, as part of an apparent prank, escorted retired Lakers superstar Shaquille O'Neal out of the Staples Center.
Ferrell was dressed as a Staples Center "redcoat" and stood stone-faced at courtside. Without breaking character, Ferrell asked Shaq to stand up from his front row seat and put his hands behind his back as Ferrell escorted him out through the tunnel.
No word as to what violation Shaq allegedly committed to warrant his "ejection".

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant does his thing anytime he chooses to. At the drop of a dime, if Kobe wants to prove something to naysayers, he will.
If Kobe hears that he’s shooting too much, he will go out, pass the ball, rebound the ball, and pass up shots just to prove a point.
Bryant started the season scorching from the field, shooting 46.3% from the field. He’s come back to...

Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant were elected starters for Sunday night's NBA All-Star game in Houston.
Despite playing through a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Howard said Monday that he expects to play.
"If I re-aggravate my shoulder in these next two games, I'll probably just play a couple of minutes and sit the rest out," Howard said.
Coach Mike D'Antoni...
Dwight Howard has some type of inherent flaw. I won’t pretend to be an avid NBA fan. When the big games are on, I watch and enjoy. I soak in a player’s greatness and watch him flourish. During the playoffs, I make a conscious effort to catch the contests at hand. I don’t dislike the [...]The post Dwight Howard’s Inherent Flaws Prove Troublesome appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
The Lakers are falling apart and at the center of that is Dwight Howard. Doesn’t matter if it is Kobe, D’Antoni, Nash or Earl Clark no one seems to like Dwight and they question his effort.
With that being said, Kobe blames the media for it blowing up.
Bryant told the media before the Lakers practice on Monday that, ”I didn’t say anything wrong. I didn’t say anything to...
Pau Gasol confirmed he will not have surgery on the torn plantar fascia in his right foot.
The Los Angeles Lakers are arguably one of the most elite franchises in professional sports. With 16 NBA Championships dating back to their days in Minneapolis, the Lakers have had a wealth of talented stars that have dazzled the hardwood and helped make the NBA what it is today. Here are the Top five Lakers of all-time.

I guess since the Los Angeles Lakers’ season has become sort of a joke, it might be time to just embrace the humor. Last night the Lakers did just that, letting Will Ferrell stand in as an usher during the game against the Phoenix Suns.
Actually, I cannot say for sure that the Lakers let him do this, or if Will just decided he would put on the uniform and stand there and since...
Say what you want about actor/comedian Will Ferrell – he’s washed up, past his prime, a shell of his former self, he should have stopped after Anchorman, he should take a few years off to come up with a new project that would totally wow us, The Campaign was awful, he yells too much, the only people happy about Anchorman 2 are aging frat boys* in need of fresh happy hour material...
Kobe Bryant's shooting percentage has decreased each month since the start of the season.
The Lakers (24-28) return home after finishing a 4-3 effort in their longest road trip of the season. That road trip started in a shocking 92-86 loss to the Phoenix Suns (17-35), a team that was and still at the bottom of the Western Conference. Needless to say, the purple and gold are looking for some payback tonight.
The last 10 days away from Los Angeles didn't go through...
The Miami Heat's 107-97 win over the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday afternoon on ABC drew a 5.0 overnight rating. Excluding Christmas Day games, it's good for the second-highest regular season overnight on ABC since they've been airing the NBA in 2002. This year's game trails just a Lakers-Heat matchup from last March, and is tied with a Lakers-Cavaliers game from February...
