Default KG vs Charlie V

About time someone called KG out. Not really a KG fan.

Geez, not sure what to make of this. If KG did indeed say this, it's extremely insensitive. And even more so since he's likely been around kid's with cancer while working with NBA Cares.

It kind of goes without saying that I don't know KG personally, but allow me to give my impression of him anyways:

He talks a mean game, hoping to intimidate his opposition. I think his track record shows that he picks on players he knows are not likely to fight back. When he does bark at someone who is unafraid of him, he tends to back down pretty quickly. In short, I think he's a coward on the basketball court.

His comments here are insensitive but I'm quite sure he's said and heard worse.

That's pathetic.
I hope KG does not get away with this. Calling someone a cancer patient because they suffer from a chronic disease is just wrong.

Dude's an ignorant bafoon.

I'm debating whether KG is just a big douche or Charlie V is just being overly sensitive. Perhaps both.

wow coach Karl class act

Quote:
Nuggets coach George Karl, himself a cancer survivor, reacted to word that Garnett had called Villanueva a cancer patient.

"Sometimes, responsibility comes from knowing when to argue when not to -- when to cross the line and when not to cross the line," he said, according to cbssports.com. "So philosophically, if Kevin and I were close friends, I'd probably call him up and say, 'I don't think that's right [what you said].' But I also believe that competition makes us do things when we don't have our total mental morality in line. We act like children at times, even coaches."

how is he being overly sensitive.
he tweeted it... so what? people tweet what color their shit is... he's merely telling the world that KG is a douchebag.
and trust me, if you had his disease and someone called you a cancer patient, i bet it would piss you off.

Well I know that, but I'm just wondering what kind of context KG was using this in. Was he just joking around with him, or was he seriously making fun of Charlies disease?

I'm not sayin he should of said it, but everyone looks at anything said these days as just negative, people can't just take it and move on is what I'm sayin.

I dont think people should say things like that, but also people shouldn't give words so much attention.

It was trash talk and wasn't meant for public consumption on twitter. Coach Karl had it right.

apparently KG said:

"My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact 'You are cancerous to your team and our league,'" Garnett said. "I would never be insensitive to the brave struggle that cancer patients endure. I have lost loved ones to this deadly disease and have a family member currently undergoing treatment. I would never say anything that distasteful. The game of life is far bigger than the game of basketball."
