When you're as talented of a scorer as Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum is, you're going to make plenty of NBA defenders look foolish.

So, to have some fun with that, McCollum put together a brilliant highlight reel series of himself to the theme of the popular TV show "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

However, McCollum's highlight video is called "Law & Order: C.J.'s Victims Unit" and pokes fun at the defenders he torched throughout the year.

On Monday, McCollum had some fun at the expense of his former teammate, Wesley Matthews. As you can see in the video below, McCollum is shown repeatedly torching the Dallas Maverciks' guard over the course of the 2016-17 season:

The video is excellently produced and is clearly all in good humor, but obviously the Mavericks had something to say about it.

Later on Monday, Dallas owner Mark Cuban replied to McCollum's tweet with a video of Mavericks rookie Yogi Ferrell torching the Blazers for a rookie-record nine three-pointers:

Indeed, McCollum was likely responsible for giving up at least a couple of those long balls, so Cuban's response was appropriate and spot-on.

To prove the Twitter beef was all in good fun, though, McCollum showed a good sense of humor by replying that he would also be putting together a blooper reel of himself in the near future:

Cuban ended the back-and-forth exchange with a laugh, telling McCollum "There's no I in blooper!" as you can see in the tweet below:

Sometimes it's nice to see an NBA star and an outspoken owner not take themselves so seriously for a while, and Cuban and McCollum's Labor Day Twitter "spat" certainly provided some levity as the 2017-18 season approaches.

Now, though, Matthews and the Mavericks will be determined not to end up on another episode of "C.J.'s Victims Unit" and will likely key on him during their four matchups this coming season.

Last year, the Blazers and Mavericks split their four regular-season matchups, with Portland winning the first and last games and Dallas taking home victories in the other two contests.

The series was incredibly even, though, as two games were decided by a single point. One game was decided by four points and the biggest win in the series was a 10-point victory by the Blazers on Nov. 7.

Both of these teams have playoff aspirations for next year, so it should be fun to see them go head to head once again this fall.
