Toronto Raptors' Bismack Biyombo hits back at Shaquille O'Neal

In case you didn't know, Shaquille O'Neal has his own TV spot called 'Shaqtin' a Fool', a highlight reel which no player should want to be a part of as it makes fun of the players involved for their actions on or off the court.

Dozens of players have been laughed at by the former LA Lakers star since the show's creation during the 2011-12 season, but what happens when one of the players who is being mocked decides to strike back?

That's exactly what Toronto Raptors' center Bismack Biyombo has done, and he decided to target the number of times Shaq missed a free throw during his career.

He said in the video on the NBA TV Twitter: "Shaq, I appreciate this award. These things happen all the time, you know. Like the 5,317 times you missed a free throw. That's a lot. Bizzy Bo, out." 

Well and truly burned! 

Considering the fact Shaq won four championships and averaged 23.7 points per game during his 19 seasons in the NBA, he probably isn't too bothered that he missed a few free throws during his career. 

Still, Biyombo free throw percentage is 67.4 percent this season, the highest of his career, while Shaq only managed to convert on average 52.7 percent during his time in the league, so the Raptors center still has the upper hand in this area.

Biyombo will have a chance to show Shaq how to hit a free throw when his Raptors play against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center, in Chicago, Illinois later this week.
