Shaq and JaVale McGee ramp up social media feud

Basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal ramped up his “feud” with his favorite “Shaqtin' A Fool” target Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee and in turn came up with a new nickname for the journeyman.

McGee has been featured during Shaq's diatribe “Shaqtin' A Fool” on TNT's Inside the NBA and with good reason. (Just check out the video below, no explanation need.)

After the Warriors 123–113 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday night, Shaq went in on McGee via social media calling him a “bumass” and McGee responding by calling him an “old bastard.”

Some of the tweet exchange is below.
