Here's Garnett's comment (courtesy of Ken Berger):
“I am aware there was a major miscommunication regarding something I said on the court last night," Garnett said in a statement from his representatives released by the Celtics.
"My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact, ‘You are cancerous to your team and our league.’
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.”
There you have it. A flat out denial.
Guess I should apologize to KG for assuming that Charlie's claim was truthful (But I sure wasn't alone).
KG could have nipped this in the bud by issuing this statement 6 hours ago.
