With just under three minutes to play in the Celtics/Pistons game, Kevin Garnett and Charlie Villanueva get double-technicals. This is the only time during the game when the talking between these two got a little spicy. Was this the sequence that prompted CV to tell the world that KG called him a "cancer patient?"
It's difficult to tell what the two are saying to each other here for certain. If KG did say that then it was going over the line but at the same time it's kind of surprising that CV would go to his Twitter account to let the world know. It's a widely-know dirty little secret that NBA players say things that are just as bad, if not a LOT worse and more offensive on a nightly basis. It doesn't make it right, but it would be madness if every player tweeted a play-by-play account of what was said to each other over a course of a game.
