Stan Van Gundy has made the mistake of engaging Shaquille O'Neal in a game of verbal warfare, as the center lashed back at the Magic coach before Wednesday's game.

Van Gundy said of Shaq's flopping, "“I was shocked, seriously, shocked. And very disappointed cause he knows what it’s like. Lets stand up and play like men, and I think our guy did that tonight.”

"He (Howard) came with the same old, stale Patrick Ewing move so I tried to stand there and take the charge," said O'Neal. "The new rules say if you come through, you fall. But as I fell, I realized that it was a flop and it reminded me of Coach Van Gundy’s whole coaching career. The one thing I despise is a frontrunner. First of all, none of his players like him. When it gets tough, he will become the master of panic like he did before and he will quit like he did before. The one thing I despise is frontrunners. Yeah, he’s got a young team playing good but don’t be a frontrunner. Him and his brother and even the legend on the bench ain’t done what I’ve done in my whole career. So flopping would be the wrong choice of words. "I just tried to take a charge. The (expletive) rules say you can’t stand there and get hit. You’ve got to fall. The (expletive) got the same old stinking move that Patrick Ewing has been doing his whole career. I went down, got up and didn’t complain. I see him and Stan complaining the whole game because they’ve got to. Remember, I’ve done more than him, his brother and Patrick Ewing. "Stan Van Gundy reminds me of a broke navigational system. He knows everything about everything but ain’t never been nowhere. Think about that. If I’m right here and I type in the address of where you’re going, I know where it’s at but I’m not going there. "When a bum says some (stuff) about it and I respond, you can (expletive) cancel that cuz I know how he is in real life. We’ll see when the playoffs start and he (expletive) panics and quits like he did when he was here (in Miami). And you (expletive) print it just like that. Do I look soft to you like you can say something and I’m not going to say something?

"Notice they didn’t play me straight up. We’ll see how far they go cuz I know Stan. I said this a long time ago but I was actually talking about him: 'When the general panics, the troops will panic. Like in business, when the head panics and takes out all his stock, what happens?

"All the players hate him. The players don’t even like him. I hate frontrunners. I really do. I don’t like any frontrunners. There’s a pecking order involved. I’ve been there six times. "I ain’t going to let no bum like him rip me and not say anything back. You can cancel that (expletive) all the way. Usually, I let (expletive) go. Not that. Not him. Hell no. "The rules say when a guy goes through your chest you’ve got to fall to get the call. It was a flop. You’ve watched me play for 17 years. I don’t play like that."

THIS is being a dick.

Shaq took it easy on Bosh.

Diesel straight up brings how he feels with no politically correct BS, agree or disagree with what he says, he lets you know where he stands. He really does know Stan so he is speaking from his experience, i really like "that old stale Ewing move" comment lol cold blooded, see the bling Patrick, but no, you cant have it :P

Shaq has 4 rings and many more appearances in the Finals... besides Kobe no one else active in NBA is even close to him.

LeBron never achieved a thing except sell lot of snickers.

what does SVG expect tho?? Obv nobody could make Shaq fall down in the lead, aside from maybe a full head of steam big man, is he supposed to not try and take charges?? It is a charge, it's just he is so superhumanly strong he wouldnt go down, so he lets the refs know by going down, pretty standard basketball to me, a flop is when u arent even touched and do that.

Kobe?? Kobe has 0 finals MVP and shaq piggy-backed him to 3 titles.

A player than CAN say something about shaq is Duncan.

but what I really hope is that Michael Jordan and Bill Russel hold a press conference and just make fun of shaq ... That Bosh comment crossed the line for me. CB4 for life .. until he leaves of course lol.

I like Shaq, but I just find his whole "attack mode" kind of boring. Just shut up and let people be amazed in your mini-revival while it lasts.

Shaq just loves to hear himself talk ,doesn't he? The Bosh thing was funny i guess, but he just sounds like a spoiled brat after this. " Nobody likes him, he's a quitter!" (shaq talking out of his ass, nothing new here)

Oh, and this gem, "Yeah, it probably was a flop, but flopping is wrong." uhhh... what?

His flop in the game against Toronto was brutal. One of the worst flops I've seen all year.

You know Shaq, the (expletive) rules also state that you can't spend more than 3 seconds in the paint.

He's complaining about the refs not making the call. It's fitting because he wasn't complaining about the refs the other night when he was getting the non-calls.
