Malcolm Gladwell Sued by Shaq, Wallace, Jordan and Drummond in Federal Court as the 10,000 Hour Rule Did Nothing To Improve Their Free Throw Shooting

SHAQUILLE O’NEAL, BEN WALLACE, DEANDRE JORDAN, AND ANDRE DRUMMOND filed a joint lawsuit in Federal District Court against author Malcolm Gladwell, based on alleged fraudulent misrepresentations related to his renown 10,000 hour rule as described in his 2008 book, “The Outliers.”

The former and current NBA stars universally allege that despite spending over 10,000 hours practicing free throws, they still suck.

When previously interviewed on his terrible free throw shooting, O Neal stated:

“Me having a beautiful wife and great family and friends around me, all the money I’ve got, all the things that I’ve got, a Ferrari that I just ripped the top off of and turned into a convertible, the rings I got, the two mansions on the water, a master’s in criminal justice. I’m a cop, plus I look good. So to me shooting 40 percent at the foul line is just God’s way of saying that nobody’s perfect. If I shot 90 percent from the line, it just wouldn’t be right.”

Most legal experts indicate that the suit is frivolous as none of the Plaintiffs have standing. In response, O’ Neal stated, “Standing? What are you talking about standing? I stand 7’1”, isn’t that enough?”

In other news, despite allegedly putting in 10,000 hours toward being a better person, Kanye West is still a douche.
