Former NBA players Dwight Howard and Shaquille O'Neal engaged in a war of words after O'Neal mocked the losing record of Howard's team, the Taoyuan Leopards, in the Taiwanese T1 League.

O'Neal questioned how the Leopards could have a losing record, saying he would never lose to anyone in Taiwan.

However, the Leopards' record stands at 3-11 despite Howard's impressive performance in his debut game, where he scored 38 points, grabbed 26 rebounds, dished out nine assists, and registered four blocks in a 120-115 victory.

O'Neal had previously criticized Howard for playing in the Taiwanese league and was unimpressed with his debut performance, stating that Howard should not be complimented for being a good father as it is expected.

In response to O'Neal's criticism, Howard took to Instagram Live and called out O'Neal for hating and being disrespectful towards his teammates and the people in Taiwan.

Howard pointed out that he had never attacked O'Neal's family or career and that there is no need for hate.

Howard also reminded O'Neal that he is supposed to be the original Superman and that he is too big and old to be hating.

Despite the Leopards losing 10 games after Howard's debut, they have recently won back-to-back games in February.
