Default Video: Kevin Garnett taunts Jose Calderon

Check out the video that Yahoo & J.E. Skeets refer too guys.

2) It was awesome. We're what, six or seven games into the season, and here are two Eastern "All-Stars" jawing at each other like it's Game 7 of the NBA Finals. KG tried to rattle young Jose, but the Spaniard refused to back down. Loved the intensity. You can sense the mutual respect between the two.

So, what do you think? Start clapping your hands in the comments, people.

Im one of the few ppl that dislikes Garnett as a person, he comes off as insincere and self promoting to me, and that silly shit will Bill Russel last year was the cherry on top! He is a bully, this isnt the 1st time he has done something like this, and he never gets called for it, seems his rep saves him from having to deal with little things like sportsmanship and class. I could go on about other things i dont like about him as a person, but i dont have all day, he can ball tho.

If I would have given KG a flagrant 1 and got myself tossed from the game.

The fine and suspension would have been worth it.

Sadly no one on our team has enough BALLS to do anything like that anymore.

The league has also changed alot.... the older players have said as much too.

Back in the day players from opposing teams didn't talk during the season. Now everyone's best buddies, high-fiving and hugging right after the game.

If this had happened to any other team though, there would have been a fight. Have to love Calderon getting his though.

Think Kevin Garnett only did pulled this because he figured the Raptors wouldn't fight back? I'd say it's possible.

After seeing Garnett acting all fcked up after winning the championship, rarely do u see raw emotion of tv and that was one of those times, I thought to myself, "wow, that guy played well and good for him for finally winning a championship". However, after all i've seen these days, especially with calderon, FUCK U GARNETT

I agree with the Yahoo person. He fucking deserved a tech and it would've been so much better if he was ejected. This proves that the refs hate the Raps or are fucking acting like *So not necessary*who take bribes like that other ******. I can rant on and on about the refs but I'll stop now.

I think there was only one all-star involved in that argument...

Good intensity; we should have responded by winning the game.

how the hell wasnt that a tech?
how does someone get away with that?
my beef with garnett is that he thinks he can do whatever he wants and looks like he's correct... the refs dont do shit.

I'll say it again, if it was a hockey game he would still be picking up his chiklets.

If you click the link now guys you can actually vote on whether you thought KG's actions were "awesome" or "disgusting". Awesome is winning by a landslide right now.

I bet the people who voted don't even know who the Toronto Raptors are and who Jose Calderon is
