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.
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?).
