Shaq vs. Justin Bieber battle goes to ... Bieber (sort of)

Perhaps he should have gone Shaq Fu on the kid. That would have served the whippersnapper right.

In one of the greatest sporting upsets in the history of totally staged events designed to get page views and ratings in the week before Labor Day, pop idol Justin Bieber beat Shaquille O'Neal in basketball. Yeah, that happened.

O'Neal had 200 pounds, 21 inches, 22 years and an NBA on Bieber, whose sole advantages were a magnificent mane of hair and the willingness of his team to play a smidgen of "defense."

The "game," set up for "Shaq Vs." on ABC, featured "teams" led by the two; Bieber won on a shot with the "score" tied at "6-all" as Shaq (who should have gotten points for the "#1 Dad" tee) tried to stop his shots by repeatedly pursing his lips.

"If you beat me, you take my jet anywhere in the world you wanta go," O'Neal told Bieber.

Is Shaq sure that was Bieber and not Tom Brady?
