The Shaq-JaVale McGee feud went nuclear overnight

BY Kerouac Smith • February 24, 2017

JaVale McGee has been a frequent target for Shaquille O'Neal's "Shaqtin' a Fool" segments on TNT, and on Thursday night, he decided he'd had enough.

Shaq recently promised to lay off McGee, but on Thursday night he had to get in one last parting shot. And man, was it good:

First off, the timing is odd. "Doctor Strange" hit theaters on Oct. 20, why is Shaq channeling that movie now to roast McGee? Whatever. It's too funny to quibble over.

Unless you are JaVale McGee, of course. He quibbled big time.

That's when Shaq decided he had to respond.

Is that a threat? McGee sure saw it that way.

Shaq immediately backed down and apolo ... oh wait, no he didn't ...

We look forward to this battle getting settled in the WWE someday soon.

Until then, let's see if Shaq lays off in the future as promised.
