Default KG Calls ESPN.com Poll "Distasteful"

It's called a joke KG.

The poll, drawing on the sports world’s current enmity toward Boston, asked users to vote for the event they would rather see happen - the Steelers beating the Patriots, Johan Santana being traded to any team but the Red Sox, or Garnett blowing out his knee.

Garnett, his mouth ajar in disbelief upon hearing about the poll after last night’s game, recovered long enough to say, “Wow, that’s really distasteful, man. Man, I mean, that’s my life, my career. You don’t joke about something like that.”

Garnett then leaned toward the nearest door - made of wood, naturally - and rapped his knuckles on it, before asking a team official to contact ESPN to register his dismay.

I agree it is of bad taste to put that on a pole, but its not a big deal either.

My money says no. KG is the ultimate competitor. He wants to win against the other team's best or die trying. If I had to bet on one pro athlete being about heart and pride without actually knowing the man, it would be KG.

Interesting.
Is that who your name is a reference to? I thought it was Igudala.
But hell yes, Jarome Iginla is a brilliant leader. My favorite hockey player by miles.

ya its referring to Iginla, will go down as top 3 greatest leaders of all time outside of messier and stevens.

Pretty sure he can posterize as well. anyone here ever see kobe in 2004 nba playoffs during the flames cup run put on an iginla jersey and say "you gotta watch hockey sometimes".

You would've thought KG would've left the room swearing vulgarities to himself while looking like he's about to kill you.

Don't even think the big ticket blows out his knee. Simmons the ultimate reject I can't wait until he gets suspended from ESPN once again.

KG rules, ultimate competitor, future HOF and plays the game with nothing but extreme honour. Can't say that about may NBAers

EDIT: Dam this is a mega old thread

this is what he said it was

but this is also the guy who calls out his own teammates when he isn't playing well

gets on other teams guards but walks away from other bigs, the guy is a bully,

he isn't geting any spympathy from the Raptors board I hope

just watch if we get this guy in the playoffs how much where going ot hate him

I'm not questioning his effort in the least, nor his work ethic. If you think he is any sort of representative of honour though, you need to do your homework.

He sticks with his team, never pussies out on them. Hey I know he gets the bully card around some parts. However; the hate thrown upon the guy is unwarranted. Many other NBA athletes deserve more redicule than KG.

I think you're mixing up 'passionate' and 'honorable'.
How is running his mouth considered honorable?
How is getting into other players faces considered honorable?
He's got heart. I like the fire.
But honorable?
Heh
