Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
DL: You grew up with a Garnett poster in your bedroom, correct? And when you played against him some things happened?
DL: Tell us about them.
JN: KG is… uh… I think… you grew up idolizing someone and now you’re caught up in a battle with him. It was definitely strange for me, but he put me in check right away. I understand his game now, being a little bit older. At the time it was definitely crazy.
DL: How did he put you in check?
JN: How did he put me in check? I’m not going to show him that much love.
Scroll ahead to the 6:10 mark for Joakim Noah’s Q&A with Dan LeBetard about KG. Not much new here, just Joakim Noah elaborating slightly about his encounters with KG. It’s rather timid and respectful, considering all the stuff he’s said in the past. Noah has called KG “dirty” and “ugly.” And let’s not forget this mild “obscene” gesture to Boston fans.
There’s a funky edit at the 6:26 mark which makes me wonder if Noah did say something crude. But LeBetard isn’t the type of guy who would hush that up.
File under: There’s nothing else going on so I was forced to post.
