This is really cool.

You can find a link between any two professional athletes from the 4 major sports.

15 with Andre Iguodala and Sidney Crosby. Can probably build a few more from there if you try hard enough.

There is no connection between Goran Dragic and Manti Te'o

Te'o just isn't in the database properly for whatever reason. It also says there's no connection between Te'o and Philip Rivers, and a 6 between Philip Rivers and Dragic, so it's obviously wrong. According to the article, you can connect any two players, but obviously that requires the machine to work.
