Kobe and Shaq are more than a decade removed from their best days together. That's why it should come as no surprise when we hear that the former Laker teammates who won three straight NBA titles together, have a much different perspective on their relationship than before. Shaq sat courtside Tuesday, in the Lakers 91-85 win against the Phoenix Suns. He and Kobe can only laugh about everything now and just appreciate what it was.
Shitty game by me with 8to's but happy with the win and how we r bonding as a unit. It was good to catch up with @shaq #respect #alphaduo

Meanwhile, Jadaveon Clowney could seek an insurance policy, if he plays the 2013 season at South Carolina. Of course, the timing of the Noel injury and Clowney discussion leads to comments like this:
Jadeveon Clowney should spend this year training instead of playing meaningless football. Cc: Nerlens Noel.

But no, seriously…
Noel should, without question, turn pro. Coming back is an even greater risk than normal. Get paid to rehab, top docs, no NCAA restrictions
