You know — just like every other team owner does, right? (Note to Tom Benson and Herb Kohl: Please do not try this.)
Evidently, Anne Gust Brown — wife of California Gov. Jerry Brown, as well as special counsel to the governor — enjoyed "the lift" that the newest member of the Sacramento Kings ownership group gave her, making a quick zing about it and sharing it with her Twitter followers. It's neat that she has a sense of humor, since noted joker Shaquille O'Neal clearly intends to bring his brand of laffs to the Kings, as evidenced by his treatment of the whole Sacramento — wait, sorry: Shaqramento, lol — "Queens" incident during a Tuesday press conference:
"I apologize," O'Neal said. "If you see me around town, come give me a hug, give me a kiss. I'll do whatever you want."
Including, apparently, lift you over his head:

You heard the man, Sacramento — Shaq's on a reconciliation tour, and he won't stop until all Kings fans feel fully repaid for the transgressions of his Los Angeles Lakers past. I'd recommend that each and every one of you insist he raise you over his head. Don't worry about hurting his back. He's covered there.
