Kevin Garnett Is Back (And Still Douchey)


There can be no doubt. Kevin Garnett is a lock for the Basketball Hall of Fame. But he’s also a lock for another hall– the one for the douchiest players to ever play NBA basketball.

In Friday night’s game against the Bulls, Garnett showed off a lot of his different douche tools. He ran his mouth most of the night, but that’s a given. After he picked up foul number 2 in the 1st quarter, Garnett was flustered as he headed to the bench. Along the way he barked and barked at the ref, even until the ball was almost inbounded to resume play again. All that for a second foul in the 1st quarter of the third game of the year? Relax, man.

Another douchey occurrence came on a bad defensive switch by the Bulls, something we’ll be seeing here in Chicago all year long. Garnett got the ball on the low block and was covered by Derrick Rose, who stands approximately one foot shorter than Garnett. Garnett made an easy bucket off the glass over Rose. Head back up the floor and play D? Nope, not KG. He had to pump his fist, leer at Rose and actually say something to him. Are you kidding me? An easy basket over a point guard and you are hooting and glaring and fist-pumping? And it was Derrick Rose. The nicest guy on the whole team and he never talks trash. It was ridiculous.

KG had a solid game, though he didn’t seem too interested in playing under the basket and had only 4 boards. And the Celts did smoke the Bulls, who were on a back to back with a travel day. But what happened to you KG? Are you really going to do this the rest of your career?
