Shaquille O'Neal isn't backing down from his feud against Scottie Pippen!
The altercation between the NBA veterans went into its second round this week when the former LA Lakers star put his former Chicago Bulls rival on blast yet again!

On Monday, O'Neal spoke out on the social media beef on his podcast The Big Podcast with Shaq, and he had this to say:
"I don't let bums disrespect me. He was a great player but I'm the bridge, he's the water. He will always be under me. Every now and then he will rise to the occasion to get to the same level as the bridge but when reality kicks in, I'm the bridge, he is water, he is under me. Scottie Pippen can't disrespect me."
So, we guess this feud isn't necessarily water under the bridge for Shaq, despite that spot on metaphor.
The 43-year-old went on to say that he wasn't looking to call anyone out with his initial Instagram picture where he claimed the best Lakers players from every era would beat the Bulls biggest stars.
But after Pippen seemed to take it personally with his response, Shaq wouldn't back down from his belief that, "we would beat em by fifty."
Take a listen to the podcast (below) to hear Pippen being called out at the 3:45 mark:
