Shaq and Jalen Rose fighting again, trying to decide who’s a worse analyst
A feud between Shaq and Jalen Rose that has been brewing since at least 2010 reappeared on Thursday night.
(Wager) Do you think @SHAQ can close thesuit jacket he is wearing tonight?!

TNT aired Jalen’s tweet and Shaq played ignorant, saying he didn’t know who Jalen was, and that he only watches two people on the rival network — none of whom are Rose.
Rose responded by blasting Shaq’s pathetic analyst skills. The former Michigan Fab Five member sent two tweets ripping Shaq’s on-air work. Rose deleted the tweets, but luckily Jocks and Stiletto Jill grabbed them for us:
Well, at least somebody said it. Shaq has been brutal for TNT all year and he resorts to stripping down to his underwear to disguise his inability to talk, just like Jalen says. Maybe this will motivate TNT to make a change on the crew, like permanently replacing Shaq with Chris Webber. As for Rose, he was already in hot water with his employer, so the public fight probably isn’t helping his job status.
