Around the Horn just needs to realize that all of the banter is detrimental to this program. None of the panelists are funny on this show and Tony Reali's jokes bomb more often than they succeed. If they just stuck to the sports discussion in this show than it would be significantly better as the debate was not all that bad today. I like that they are talking about tennis, but it was Serena Williams, not Caroline Wozniacki, so it is not that surprising.
Bill Plaschke, just shut up. Shaquille O'Neal is one of the few people who can talk about whoever he wants and if he said that you and JA Adande created the feud with Kobe Bryant then I am more inclined to take his word for it than yours.
