Nailed it.

While out in Aspen during an offseason, Dwight found a dance partner with a bit of an age advantage on him…

    Doing break dancing won’t gives you any ring. You need to learn our “king” LeBron swaggy dance!

    Dwight’s a good player but I always tought that he just wants to be like Shaq. Unfortunately, Shaq has the rings, so he will always be Superman to me.

    Dwight is a great player. no doubt to that.. having fun as a person should not define how good 1 as a sportsman. Rings, Lebron as no king blah, blah, blah. Why is Kobe really a snake? Who did Kobe get his rings with? Ha! of course with the right teammates!

    I like that Shaq has the best moves out there.

    No Rhythm on the dance floor is good sign no footwork in the paint.

    Maybe he should add some low-post moves to his repertoire?
