Liz Cambage Says Andrew Bogut Is 'Obsessed' With Her

The war-of-words between Liz Cambage and Andrew Bogut has taken a new - rather unusual - turn.

This bizarre feud between two of Australian basketball's greatest is becoming hard to keep up with, but Cambage has perhaps put the final nail in the argument's coffin with a savage response to Bogut's latest dig.

After Cambage recently backflipped on her decision to boycott the Olympic Games, Bogut came out and slated her for it by labelling her move as "poor form".

Now Opals star Cambage has bit back, simply tweeting: "Mr Bogut's obsession with me so strange, it's been like 10 years of you speaking on my name... if you want me just say that."

To which Bogut replied: "Love ya Liz Cambage! Could you please not use all yellow emojis and use a more diverse range of emojis next time. Thanks!"

Bizarre, right?

She felt so strongly on the matter that she even threatened to boycott the upcoming Games in Tokyo unless changes were made.

But within 24 short hours, she made a huge U-turn and announced that she would - in fact - be getting on the plane travelling to Japan.

"For everyone so desperately wondering what my decision is for the Opals, I'm in baby. I'm in baby! I'm in! Wooooo!" she said via an Instagram video.

This drew a response from former NBA champion Bogut.

"What frustrates me with this is counting the amount of different skin colours in a photo is just poor form," he said while appearing on his Rogue Bogues podcast.

"It's a pretty slippery slope once you start counting.

"Some of our most prominent people of colour that play for Australia, Patty Mills and Ben Simmons, they're playing in the best league in the world right now, they can't even come to that photo shoot.

"I don't think Cambage can, she's probably overseas.

"There's a lot of different factors that go into it, this is made out like it was a blatant effort to whitewash the photo, to make Australia look white.

"C'mon. Not in today's day and age, you'd be an idiot if you're running the AOC to do that, because you're going to get blow ups."

Neither individual has responded since, but it's probably safe to say that this feud is far from over.
