With 7 seconds left in the Warriors opening night match-up with the Spurs, the "Super Team Villains" were down by 27! Embarrassing right? Then Jonathon Simmons posterized JaVale McGee in the final seconds to give the Warriors a 29 point loss and Shaq a big smile.
The reason why Shaq was smiling is because JaVale recently went off on Shaq and his Shaqtin' a Fool show by saying, “Fans think it’s real, like that’s real life and they think I’m a dumb person. It’s just really disappointing that grown men, 50, 40 year olds are having America’s funniest home videos of a player. And then making it a hashtag and really just trying to ruin someone’s career over basketball mistakes.”
On a recent episode of "The Big Podcast with Shaq" the MDE responded by saying, "I don't give a good God damn" what JaVale thinks and then said he was going to pay extra close attention to JaVale's play in the first month of the season, looking for any opportunity to feature McGee on the show. Although getting dunked on in the first 4 minutes of the season isn't worthy of being featured on the show, it was worthy of this tweet by Shaq.

JaVale wasn't the only Warrior embarrassed by the play and loss. After the game, Coach Steve Kerr said, "I think our guys were embarrassed tonight. I know I was."
And they can thank this guy for much of that embarrassment.
