DeShawn Stevenson went on a Twitter rant Tuesday where he called out an ex-Nets teammate for talking some crap.

It all started with the following profanity-laced tweet from Stevenson, who was traded from the Nets to the Atlanta Hawks in the Joe Johnson deal:

Stevenson continued ranting over Twitter:

Though Stevenson didn’t say who he was upset with, we have a pretty good idea.

There is strong speculation that Stevenson was directing his anger toward Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams, who complained last week about his teammates’ behavior following losses last season.

“It was hard. I’ve never been in that position before,” Williams told reporters. “So at times, I’ve showed frustration, but I think anybody would have. I think no matter who it is, if you were there every day and you saw what was going on in the locker room you’d be pissed off too sometimes. You’re getting your asses kicked and then you’re in the locker room laughing about the game afterwards.

“I don’t think that stuff is funny. That’s what we had to deal with last year. But I don’t think we’re going to deal with it this year, because just talking to the guys, that’s not what we’re about. We’re talking about not losing two games in a row. We were just trying to fight to win two games in a row last year.”

Stevenson may have seen those comments on ESPN’s website, causing him to say “ESPN Mag” in his tweet. We could be wrong about whom he’s upset with, but we do know one thing is for certain: You never want to be on the bad side of a guy who has an Abe Lincoln neck tattoo.
