Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut missed their playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers with a rib fracture, which was the latest in a long line of injuries for the former No. 1 overall pick. 

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith took to the airwaves to question Bogut during that first-round playoff series. He called the big man “Andrew Bogus” and indicated that Bogut is considered a tin man by those who speak behind his back.

Bogut responded to these words on Twitter earlier this month.

He then responded to the ESPN personality directly.

It is, however, Bogut’s most recent reference to Stephen A. Smith that sheds some comedic light on the public altercation. Appearing on an Austrialian-based podcast, Bogut simply called the scribe a “wanker” when asked to sum him up in one word.

For those of you not familiar with the term wanker, you need not look any further than this epic clip.

I think you get the gist.
