When Trash Talk Gets Dirty

     I think that as he ages, KG’s knees aren’t the only thing breaking down. He must have lost his mind to start calling people “cancer patients” while on the hardwood. It might be a little hypocritical of me to blog condescendingly about trash talk, (I’ve been screaming mean-spirited things to opposing teams this whole soccer season) but Garnett went way too far in calling Charlie Villenueva a cancer patient. Villenueva suffers from a disease where he can’t grow hair on any part of his body — something that has plagued him since childhood and led him to start an anti-bullying campaign.

     Garnett has always been a heated trash-talker, especially in the middle of a basketball game, but he needs to keep the talk so its about the game, not irreversible genetic diseasees.

    Joey,
    I love the idea of this post. I hope you will continue (weekly?) sifting out an interesting TWEET and commenting on it, as you do so well with KG. Just a suggestion for novices like me: consider giving us full names of people. KG. Who’s that? Maybe I’m the only one who doesn’t know, but others reading may be as not-in-the-know as me. 😉 Cool post, warrior! I also like how you’ve linked to the tweet and the anti-bullying website.

    KG=Bully. KG=Kevin Garnett btw Mr. Wiseman. But did Villenueva really need to tweet it?
