A: Well, we were behind 8-4 when I was taken out, but it does not go down as a loss, officially.
Q: So, just to recap, you had Shaquille O'Neal and three other NBA stars as teammates in a pickup game, but you lost to a team led by a man named Ramone Veal. Would you agree this ranks as the lowest moment in this godforsaken NBA year?
A: Absolutely, but afterward, Shaq paid me the ultimate compliment, saying, "Well, at least you're better than Elden Campbell."
Q: I'm outta here.
A: I'm not sure he was kidding.
