We have to say, Q2s can be some of the most deceptively passive individuals. We save “deceptively,” because in reality they are extremely competitive. The #6 BEIR, #10 BCAR, and #2 BEAR top the list, while the #14 BCIR typically seeks to destroy his or her competitors mentally. So when Shaquille O’Neal (#6 BEIR) and Scottie Pippen (#2 BEAR) started trash talking over Instagram recently, it was destined to get ugly, and likely funny.

Funny it did get, and it’s hard not to laugh hysterically when reading their exchange. As might be expected, Shaq started the fight by making a random claim that the best players ever to don a Lakers uniform would embarrass a Bulls squad by 50 points (and unless MJ went for 80 points, he’s probably right). “We would beat em by fifty ‘what you think’. Let me know and don’t hold back.”  Shaq then posted a picture of the best Lakers ever to play atop a picture of the best Bulls ever to play.

Scottie, in reply, posted a picture of him and Michael Jordan, stating,Sorry @shaq but I don’t get caught up in hypotheticals. All I know is we won 6 titles, twice the amount you claimed while in LA.”  Shaquille, NEVER one to be outdone, then posted the same picture Scottie posted with Michael Jordan’s head pasted over Scottie’s, saying, Sorry @scottiepippen I don’t believe in hypotheticals either, but I seen most of those final you did ok, but this guy did most the work. #youwereok steve kerr and Ron harper deserve more credit than you…

The exchange goes ON and ON, with both Q2s trying desperately to outdo each other (http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/post/_/id/13292196/shaq-destroys-scottie-pippen-instagram-pippen-fires-back-just-keeps-going). Apparently, Shaq is quite adept at Photoshop!

Pippen played the mature one and finally ended the scuffle, posting, “Game over, @shaq. All that’s ever mattered to me is winning and we did plenty of that in Chicago…”

Moral of the story … when it comes to competition, the #6 BEIR will likely beat you every time, especially when they have too much time on their hands, which Shaq apparently does.
