The original report from Yahoo! Sports NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski said that the shouting between the two got to the point where it could be heard by other players and at one point was "really bad."

That didn't sit well with O'Neal, who adamantly denied any such report. The veteran even went as far as to call out whomever decided it was a good idea to leak the information. Of course, he took to Twitter to clear things up:
