In what has become an increasingly intense rivalry, Drew Gooden is doing all he can to stoke the flames between his current team, the Milwaukee Bucks, and his former team, the Chicago Bulls.

On Saturday the Bulls edged out a 93-86 win over the Bucks, and after the game Gooden and Bulls center Joakim Noah engaged in some playful sparring on Twiter.

Then, the 31-year-old power forward posted the following tweet on his account Monday morning, hours before the Bucks tipped off against the Bulls in Chicago.

Before long, a fan tweeted a photo of guard Kirk Hinrich's jersey in the toilet. In a twist of fate, Hinrich has been a teammate of Gooden's twice: In college at Kansas and on the Bulls from 2007 to 2009.

Gooden wrote back to the fan, "You Win!! Hated for it to have been Kirk's jersey but oh well. There will be two tickets. Under Zack Krupp @willcall"

With the Bucks and Bulls battling for first place, this should be an interesting sublot to an otherwise bland rivalry.

After the game, Blatche was driving home when he noticed his car was low on gas. Blatche conveyed his struggles in a series of tweets:

Not everyone was sympathetic to Blatche. Former teammate Chris Singleton made light of Blatche's struggles with this humorous tweet:

To prove he wasn't messing around, Blatch even tweeted this photo of his dashboard showing the empty gas tank.

About two hours after Blatche's first tweet, he finally got gas. It's unclear how Blatche finally received fuel, but it's safe to say he wasn't to happy. The gas cost him $220:

(H/T to Game On!)
