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.
