Kevin Garnett was fouled hard by J.J. Barea last night. Did I say hard? I meant he was wrapped up on a fast break and he tried to show Barea. Then when the referees tried to break up the scuffle that Garnett tried to start, he tried to push the referee away. Don’t expect an apology from Garnett. Channing Frye isn’t getting one.
We ”played a back-to-back in Phoenix. This game was physical as well and super ugly. I never apologize for my actions, as I play with passion. I actually got ejected for (the ref said) ‘talking too much.’ Can you believe that?
When he does pick on someone his own size, its with a cheap shot. And being Kevin Garnett means never having to say you’re sorry. Even if a rookie scores on you in practice and you crack him in the jaw.
So will the league step up and fine Garnett? You also have to love the little extra asshole flourish at the end of the Mavs video as the referee is walking along Garnett asking for the basketball, Garnett ignores him, keeps walking and then drops the ball and walks away. What’s not to love?
