1397005034_howard sternJeff Van Gundy became the latest victim of a Howard Stern verbal beatdown.

Last Wednesday, the ESPN analyst and former Knicks coach put Stern on blast when he learned that the famed radio host left his courtside seats during the third quarter of New York’s blowout against the Nets.

“I wouldn’t give you front row seats again if you leave early,” Van Gundy said on the broadcast. “Nick Lachey is still here, (with the Knicks) up 27 points.”

The criticism didn’t sit well with Stern, who fired back in an expletive-filled rant on his Sirius XM radio show on Tuesday, according to TMZ Sports.

“Jeff, I hate to explain it to you, but people who are really busy and have multiple careers going and get up at all hours of the day, they cant stay at the basketball game.”

Stern went on to call Van Gundy a “loser” and a “midget” among many other names and told him the next time he wants to criticize him to say it to his face.

Your move, Van Gundy.
