The Entire Feud: Shaquille O’Neal vs. JaVale McGee (and Kevin Durant)

Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee has been the laughing stock of the NBA during his career for his blooper-filled highlights.

Appearing on Shaquille O’Neal’s Shaqtin’ A Fool special on TNT on a weekly basis for years now–a show where NBA bloopers are exposed and ranked–McGee has had enough.

After Golden State’s 123-113 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night, O’Neal took to Twitter to heckle McGee, calling him a “bumass” and threatening to “smack the s**t” out of him.

McGee fought back to O’Neal’s taunts, starting a Twitter feud with the Hall of Famer.

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant defended his teammate JaVale McGee who is playing great as of late. Durant called out O’Neal’s flaws during his playing career and proved that every player is not perfect.

Of course, O’Neal retaliated on Twitter and told Durant to stay out of it.

According to ESPN, the Golden State Warriors reached out to TNT to express the negative portrayal of JaVale McGee on O’Neal’s Shaqtin A Fool is hurting their player’s reputation, as well as the team’s.

McGee is averaging 6.1 points and 3.0 rebounds in just 9.6 minutes per game. He is shooting 67.3% from the field and has stepped up significantly in place of the injured Zaza Pachulia.
