We don’t know Kevin Garnett. We’re sure that off the court he’s a really nice person. But when it comes to basketball he has proven to be a world class a$$hole.
But anyone familiar with Garnett’s history knows that this is the type of thing he does. Fierce competitor. Zero F*cks Given. Here are seven of his biggest douchebag moments on record.
7. Ignores Ray Allen at start of 2012-2013 season
Before the first game against the Miami Heat, Garnett hit former teammate Ray Allen with the “ignore” button when he sent out a friend request on the sidelines. Garnett also said he lost Allen’s phone number when he left the team.
6. Elbow To Joakim Noah
Snuck in a cheap shot on Bull’s Center Joakim Noah after a whistle was already blown. Joakim went on a “Garnett is mean” world tour afterward in the press.
5. Taunts Jose Calderon
While the 6′ 11″ Garnett was guarding the 6′ 3″ Raptors point guard Jose Calderon, Garnett chased him down the court with a finger wag/moving pick that should have gotten whistled.
4.Tells Announcer To Burn His Clothes
During a postgame interview Garnett tells reporter Craig Sager, who is a walking fashion “don’t”, that he should burn his clothes.
3. Made Big Baby Cry
Garnett is an equal opportunity offender. During a game against the Portland Trailblazers, Garnett showed how Glen “Big Baby” Davis earned his nickname by making him cry in a huddle.
2. Worst Mama Joke Ever
During a playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs, it is rumored that Garnett hit opponent Tim Duncan below the belt by wishing him a “Happy Mother’s Day Motherf*cker” while he was shooting freethrows. Why is this so cold? Duncan’s mother died of breast cancer the day before his 14th birthday.
1. Sorry Charlie…
During a game against the Detroit Pistons in 2010, Charlie Villanueva--who suffers from Alopecia–claims that Garnett said he “looked like a cancer patient” because of his lack of hair. Garnett disputes this claim saying that he only called Charlie a cancer. For the record he is a Virgo (oh, come on, we can’t have some fun?).
