Default Garnett: "I'm far from dirty"

Quote:
“Look here, I don’t play for the Phoenix Suns,” Garnett said Friday during the interview session on All-Star Weekend’s first day. “I could care less what Spike or whoever else has to say about me. As long as Doc Rivers and my organization is happy with what I’m doing, I could care less.”

Run-ins with opponents (Joel Przybilla, Antonio McDyess, Zaza Pachulia, Jose Calderon, Francisco Elson) and even teammates (Wally Szczerbiak, Rick Rickert) have piled up, tarnishing Garnett’s legacy for some fans. After Garnett elbowed Miami’s Quentin Richardson last April, Chicago center Joakim Noah called him a “dirty” player. That word came up again Friday.

“I’m far from dirty. ‘Dirty’ is like ‘hate’ – don’t use that word,” Garnett said. “I’m competitive and I play hard. But don’t call me ‘dirty.’ Just like, if you dislike me, dislike me but ‘hate’ is a very strong word.”

Garnett, a future Hall of Famer and a player praised by his various coaches for his intensity, didn’t sound in any hurry to change his approach, though he did acknowledge softening it for “friendly” events such as the All-Star Game.

For some reason I thought that was a swipe at Nash because everyone likes him.

I'm likely wrong.

He was responding to a question asking what he thought about Alvin Gentry saying that he had lost respect for him. He's indicating that he doesn't care what a coach from another team thinks about him; he cares what Doc Rivers and the Celtics Organization thinks about him.

He can say all he wants about what type of player he is but the proof is in the pudding. Look at his play on the court and infer from that what type of respect he has for the game and his fellow players.

Heh. I was right about my assumption being wrong.

Well, all I'll say is that no matter how hated he is, I would love to have him on our team. He's the kind of player that sets out to get under the opposing players skin, and he does that very well.
