The feud between JaVale McGee and Shaquille O'Neal has officially turned into Shaq vs. the Golden State Warriors. After the two traded barbs on Twitter on Friday, Kevin Durant was asked to comment on the situation, and like a good teammate, KD came to McGee's defense. "It’s definitely childish, but that’s what they want from these stars and these retired players, is to feud with the guys playing now and make arguments," Durant said. "If I was JaVale I’d feel the same way. It’s childish.”
Instead of waiting for his next appearance on Inside the NBA to reply to Durant's remarks, Shaq took to Twitter to tell KD to "mind yo business."
And, of course, Shaq took another shot at JaVale.
According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, the Warriors have reached out to Turner Sports to discuss O'Neal's consistent bashing of JaVale, claiming that "the ongoing negative portrayal of the veteran center is doing unnecessary damage to McGee's reputation." While Turner informed ESPN that "the matter has been discussed internally," it's uncertain if we have heard the last from these two. Since Shaqtin' A Fool has become such a popular segment on Inside the NBA, it's hard to believe that the show will put an end to it because of one complaint from a team. Things will get real interesting, though, when JaVale submits something Shaqtin' A Fool-worthy. We all know it's just a matter of time.
