Report: Warriors Contacted TNT About Shaq Bullying Javale McGee
Well, it looks like this story just got an unexpected twist.
Early Friday morning, Golden State Warriors big man Javale McGee was finally fed-up with the constant trolling of Shaquille O’Neal and got into a public Twitter battle with him that lead to threats being thrown between the two.
Kevin Durant and head coach Steve Kerr have already publicly defended McGee and according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, the organization is standing behind McGee as well.
“The Golden State Warriors have reached out to Turner Sports to discuss Shaquille O’Neal’s ongoing coverage of center JaVale McGee, league sources told ESPN.
Sources told ESPN that the Warriors contacted Turner officials to express concern about TNT’s yearslong McGee coverage on the “Shaqtin’ a Fool” segment on the popular “Inside The NBA” show, with the team contending that the ongoing negative portrayal of the veteran center is doing unnecessary damage to McGee’s reputation.
A Turner source confirmed the discussions with the Warriors and told ESPN that “the matter has been discussed internally” after a Twitter feud erupted Thursday night between O’Neal and McGee.”
This could get interesting.
