The NBA is better than every other sport at everything, including Twitter fights in the middle of the night involving a current player and a Hall of Famer that currently works for TNT. You don’t get that anywhere. Jay Cutler will never be up at 3 a.m. tweeting at Terry Bradshaw. Never happened.
But it was Javale McGee and Shaquille O’Neal — again — in the early hours of Friday being mad online.
Like any good beef, it started offline. On Thursday night’s edition of NBA on TNT, Shaq fronted a Dr. Strange parody that featured McGee missing dunks, falling down, and Shaq starring in the clip.
So you can see how this may upset someone. It did.
McGee responded at 2:25 a.m. (not even 11:30 p.m. his time, so it’s still early) requesting that Shaq… well, you see.
If you’d like to know what EAD stands for, it’s “Eat A Dick”.
Shaq got around to responding at 3:57 a.m. ET, which is very likely his time zone since the TNT show is shot in Atlanta.
Shaq closed the argument with a photoshop he had.
Shaq scored good with the photoshop. It’s interesting to see what happens in the future. Who knows, maybe they’ll work it out.
