Think to 6 years ago…We’re sitting at home, watching the Lakers win their 3rd title of 3, this time against Jason Kidd and the New Jersey Nets. Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal are celebrating as victorious teammates and in a technology world where, youtube is still Chad Hurley’s pet project, cell phones work mostly for long distance calls, and Kobe and Shaq are three-time champions. Fastforward to 2008 in the new media era where, Shaq drops a verse at an NYC club where he disses Kobe, a fan films this show on his cell phone where TMZ picks up the video, and now some kid in middle America makes his own reponse video.

Update: Shan Foster was taken with the 51st pick in the draft by the Dallas Mavericks. Marc Cuban is excited and congrats to Shan, he’s going to be a legit NBA player. Marc Cuban from the Dallas Morning News:
“All you have to do is look at his YouTube tape where he had nine 3s against Mississippi State. It’s incredible the range he has. [ESPN analyst] Jay Bilas said Shan couldn’t hit the NBA 3, but he never even takes a college 3. I think we got a steal, but we’ll see. Everybody’s a hero on draft day.”

This just in:
Shaquille O’Neal will lose his special deputy’s badge in Maricopa County because of language he used in a rap video that mocks former teammate Kobe Bryant.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said “I want his two badges back … Because if any one of my deputies did something like this, they’re fired. I don’t condone this type of racial conduct.”
