Drew Gooden has been on both sides of the rivalry between the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls, so he decided to have a little fun with it.
The Bucks forward took to Twitter to offer two tickets to Monday night's game between the two teams in Chicago to the first person who sent him a picture of a Bulls jersey in a toilet.Ironically, the winner sent Gooden a picture of a Kirk Hinrich jersey in the toilet. Gooden and Hinrich were not only former teammates with the Bulls but also played together at the University of Kansas.
"Hated for it to be Kirk's jersey but oh well," Gooden tweeted.Bulls forward Joakim Noah, a close friend of Gooden's, got in a bit of a friendly Twitter war with Gooden on Sunday.
The Bulls beat Milwaukee on Saturday, which caused Gooden to send a tweet saying that the Bucks were looking for payback Monday.
After a few friendly back-and-forth tweets, which included Gooden warning Noah to not get a chopstick from P.F. Chang's stuck in his hair, Noah sent this:
"U dont want twitter war Goody. Word on street is ur minglin around Mastros. I'll send Bulls fans to come tie you up."
Both confirmed during shootaround that it was all fun, but it was Gooden who got the final laugh after his team rallied from 27 points down to in.
The final tweet from Gooden?
"Hahahahahhahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha!! Go Bucks!!"

The Milwaukee Bucks dropped to 7-6 on the season after a blowout loss to the Knicks on Wednesday night. The final score was 102-88.
The story line on this one is pretty simple. The Knicks can make 3′s. This leads to lots of floor space, and open shots for the bigs. Makes life easy. Steve Novak killed them. The Bucks unfortunately, cannot shoot 3′s that well, which makes...
