Kevin Garnett voted NBA's top trash talker

Quote:
According to his peers, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett(notes) is the top trash talker in the NBA.

Yes, that's right; the same gentleman who breathes intensity, spits straight venom from the sidelines, and occasionally gets down all fours in a wild attack dog-like defensive stance was voted the L's worst trash talker.

Who would have thunk it?

Garnett received 62 percent of the vote in a Sports Illustrated poll of 173 league players who were asked to name the worst trash talker in the league.

Kobe Bryant(notes) (7%) was second, followed by Rasheed Wallace(notes) (5%). Fourth on the list was 'Lil Him Nate Robinson (3%), who tied with Paul Pierce(notes).

Man i don't think i can just walk by if someone did that to me. I really wish someone would put him on his ass. I'd pay just to see that. Notice too, that he does it to much smaller players.... Jose, Gordon, Belinelli....

I really wish the NBA would hand out suspensions for that kind of bullshit conduct.

I mean... what sort of message are they sending kids who watch garbage like that? This guy is somebody they look up to. Pathetic.

The problem is the media and apparently the NBA view good sportsmanship as boring and you get better ratings from the fans watching Garnett trash talk than him showing good sportsmanship.

It is sad, but that is the way it is. The only people who can change it are the fans if they wish too.

Fuck that, fans will watch anything. Wether Garnett is chewing someone out or not. It's up to the league to clean that shit up. By them doing so, isn't going to stop people from going to the games. So get it done.

Garnet is awesome.

He did what Larry Legend was great at ... What MJ was great at .. What the glove was great at ... and a whole slew of other Hall of Famers.

I could care less if people think KG is a dickhead, douche, not a nice person etc. etc. This dude WINS and gets his players up for a game if he is in the lineup or not.

Doc even said "I'm glad we took KG to Tdot he just pumps up the team" (paraphasing)


If Toronto had a KG they would have a hell of a lot more wins

I think It will take a couple of players elbowing him in the mouth, but he's a star, so there would be a lot to lose for those players from the league's penalty.
I am truly amazed that he actually goes out of his way to humiliate guys to get in their heads and no one does anything about it. I'd sit 5 games to be the guy to knock his ass out.

Even though I like Kobe, I started liking Raja Bell because Kobe was trash talking, cocky and slapping him in the face. Bell handled it and called him out point blank saying he was arrogant. Kobe's never been as arrogant since because it was a wakeup call. K.G. needs a few of these......

I'm saying every word of encouragement, ever positive reinforcement in practise helps your team.

Their is a reason why back in the U glory days Michael Irvin and a bunch of former Canes used to be on the sidelines. Players see this and see these guys encouraging the team. This is a boost. Their is a reason the Canes are considered to some the best sports dynasty possibly ever. They pay attention to the little things. Encouragement, Vocalness gives you an edge.

Garnett provides this boast to his team. Vocal leaders that hold positive reinforcement to his team helps. I dunno whats the hate on KG the guy is fantastic. He was loyal to the Twolves for longer than many would even imagine ... he was a natural leader from day one and his Vocal attitude is just dripping with inspiration throughout the whole team. He is the pinnacle of what a big man should be in the new era.

That's why I love Raja Bell lol.

f*ck kobe.

But in terms of the Garnett story, I think he's an idiot. Tell him to mouth off Dwight, Shaq or Yao. He absolutely layed out beli though, it was like a football hit lol.

Nice post, but that is not what I asked you. To inspire his team does Garnett need to resort to trash talk, yes or no?

no ... trash talking is to get the opposing player off his game.

i have no problem with a guy being mouthy and backing it up... any sports fan should appreciate the passion and intensity.
my problem is that Garnett only does this shit to the guys who dont fight back... he never tries this shit with the real tough guys who wouldnt take that kind of shit.
he's a fake bully.
he preys on the weak... because he's a fake tough guy. i can never respect someone like that, and its why i hate him, its the mark of a pussy.

I still remember this kind of thing going on. It was disturbing to me to watch it. I only hope that with his new found "strength", that CB is not the type of player to allow that type of thing anymore.
Once again, K.G. is doing this to show a guy up publicly. And to Insider's point, no he would not do that to D-Howard or SHAQ or any one else who he considers to have a spine.
