The reason why we love, and they hate, Kevin Garnett


Because he does stuff like this.  

WE love it because it gets in peoples' heads and it can make them play like crap.

THEY hate it because it's a bit of a dick move… and they're probably saying there should be a tech or something on the play. 

It's the classic case of "he's on my team, so I love him for it."  Most sports fans feel the same way about someone on one of their favorite teams.  But KG's ours… so… 

Keep up the good work, KG.  

Oh… and for those of you think he just started doing this stuff… it's nothing new.  He's been doing it for a while.  Most people just didn't see it in Minnesota.  He's the same old KG.  It's just a different city… a different uniform.

(Thanks MrTrpleDouble10 for the good find on the Minny video)

    It was also a great play because Garnett knew Noah already had a tech, so if he responded at all he would have been tossed. Complete mind games

  • CFH

    When that happened, I laughed.
    Then I applauded my TV.
    Then I reminisced about how I always used to laugh when Danny Ainge pulled garbage like that.
    It was a good time.

  • UhOh!!

    i lmao when i saw this during the game complete mind games ala “the greatest”(ali) people say he doesn’t pick on people his own size and conveniently forget him going nose to nose with odom, karate chopping dwight’s arm into oblivion and back in the days smacking tim duncan across the head… KG isnt scared of anybody dude’s an alpha male… i wonder how many players he’s psyched out or thrown off their game during his career

  • BRADinLA

    KG brings those intangibles like woah.

  • thetitleisours

    Looks like with all this stuff KG already has the edge with opponents melting down

  • KY Celts fan

    Aww, the Karate chop! I had forgotten that one! A lot of people were pissed but I thought it was hilarious. Especially when he did it a second time!

  • Champ

    KG is the biggest Pussy EVAH!
    OOOOHHHHHH Mr. intensity.

  • Joseph 17-16 (it’s just a matter of time)

    That’s what great about Gasol – he just worked KG last year in the Finals. Impressive, very impressive.

  • jj

    Lol, Example: ^^^^^^^^
    We love him, They hate him

  • thetitleisours

    So why then did you need the ref’s to steal game seven?

  • thetitleisours

    And Kobe got get out of jail free card. Your guy is the bigger puss as he needs to choke woman

  • Joseph 17-16 (it’s just a matter of time)

    HAHAHAH, Refs? That’s your excuse for your Boston team for blowing a lead. The Suckdics are renown for blowing leads. They did it all last year and it cost them, and they still do it this year.
    Or are you one of these guys that thinks it’s big conspiracy against Boston? OHHHHH, David Stern wants the Lakers to win. Everyone is the NBA is against Boston. Only call fouls against Boston, no one else! Big conspiracy. All the calls went to the Lakers because the entire NBA is against Boston!!! OH NOOO.
    If you believe this, then you’re a f’n idiot, and you shouldn’t watch the NBA.
    Quit being a crybaby and blaming the refs. The Suckdics had TWO (2) chances to finish the series and they didn’t do it. The Suckdics got their a**es kicked in Game 6 and choked away Game 7. Live with it!

    Here’s another great one with Amare Stoudemire:

  • i’d say no

    guy’s a bitch. bitch move, bitch basketball. guy’s lucky noah didn’t knock his fuckin head off.

  • BananaMan

    Noah was effected so much by this he only scored 26 points on him.
