Kevin Garnett Is A Punk Ass Bitch

If you’ve followed basketball at any point in the past decade and a half you would know that KG’s latest drama with Carmelo Anthony is just par for the course. In Garnett’s most recent example of asshattery, he told Melo that his (possibly) estranged wife, LaLa Anthony, “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios”. This prompted a 6-26 shooting performance from Anthony, multiple technical fouls and a standoff outside of the Celtics team bus.

Like I said, this is nothing new for KG. He’s the definition of all bark and no bite. The biggest bully on the NBA playground. This is a guy who once told a player with alopecia that he “looks like a cancer patient”. A guy who once wished a rival player a “Happy Mother’s Day Motherfucker,” knowing full well that the player’s mom had passed away from breast cancer when he was just a child. This is a guy who throws dirty elbows and hits players in the nuts while the clock is ticking, but has never once backed up his hateful words and fought someone one on one. Jeff Van Gandy has shown more fight on the basketball court than this little punk.

You know how in movies and TV shows they always tell you that if you ever end up in jail you’ve got to fight the biggest, baddest guy there and then people won’t want to mess with you? Well that big bad guy is exactly who Kevin Garnett is in the NBA. All it would take is one punch in the teeth to get him to shut his mouth for good.

And we came this close to seeing that Monday night with Carmelo. It doesn’t matter that he’s a candidate for MVP, or that little kids are looking up to him.  Everything goes out the window when you bring someone’s family into the mix. There comes a certain time when one must be held accountable for their actions, and saying that you know what a guys wife tastes like is that line.

Hell, even Reggie Miller, the longtime king of on the court trash talk, chimed in on the situation saying there’s a code of conduct when it comes to trash talking and that “You don’t ever talk about anyone’s family.” 

Garnett must have missed that memo.

Naturally, Boston fans are quick to come to their beloved big man's defense, saying its all part of the game, and that if he can get inside a players head then he's just doing all he can to help their team win. But they're wrong. Just because someone is "your asshole," doesn't mean they're not an asshole.

Though this latest beef only adds to the storied Boston-New York rivalry, make no mistake about it, this is personal. If you don't think Carmelo is going to be giving it all he's got every time these two square off between now and the time KG retires you must be out of your god damn mind. And even though there may have been too many people in his way to settle it outside the Garden Monday night, Melo will get another shot at justice in the playoffs.

And that's when the real damage will be done.
