Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire went back to the school playground during a Twitter feud with an unhappy basketball fan.

Brian Ferrelli tweeted Stoudemire on Saturday, saying he should "make up for this past season." Stoudemire didn't appreciate the negative feedback and sent a private message back to the Knicks fanatic. Unfortunately, Stoudemire used a gay slur in his message. The private missive was captured by Ferrelli who took a screen shot and displayed it.

Won't happen again."
