Who’s the Celtics rookie with the balls to trash talk KG?


Nets rookie Mason Plumlee held a Google Hangout with fans recently and one of the questions was about Kevin Garnett’s trash talking habits.

He did decline to describe KG’s trash talk, but instead recounted a story Paul Pierce told him about how an unnamed Celtics rookie trash-talked Garnett himself!  KG didn’t respond to the rookie but turned to Pierce and asked him to tell the rookie to stop it … until he has 1,000 points or $500,000 in the bank.

Love this. Garnett completely dismisses the rookie while insulting him at the same time.

Now the question is… who was the rookie?

Had to be Glen Davis, right?

The Celtics haven’t drafted many brash rookies over the years; Sullinger, Fab Melo, Kris Joseph, Avery Bradley, JaJuan Johnson, Luke Harongody, Semih Erden, E’Twaun Moore, Lester Hudson, JR Giddens, and Gabe Pruitt are the guys to pass through during KG’s time in Boston.

    Must’ve been Fab. He never seemed to fit in. Aaaand he seems like he might make that type of mistake.

    • Chulinho

      That’s my pick.

      • Curt Hays

        I can’t believe no one else was with us, man!

  • Evan Murphy

    I’m thinking billy walker, total punk and had a few run ins with kg in training camp if i recall

    • CFH

      My guess too. He had an aggressive mouth on him.

    • bill_nair

      Was just going to post this. We all remember him grabbing Bill by the throat in NY.

  • DJ Woods

    Im going JR Giddens. was expected to go early in draft and went late because he had issues with authority and teammates. Total ball hog with a mouth. Barely played here, denounced as a bust and shipped out quickly to I believe NY or PHO and out of the league 2-3 years later. Fab barely talked and bill walker was actually some what liked.

    • ThatGuyOverTheOcean

      Speaking of Giddens, I just saw him play today. Italian 2nd division. Boy he fell out hard.

  • Dustin Chapman

    Semih “Soul Eater” Erden doesn’t back down from ANYONE. Ever.

  • Philip Sampson

    Totally bill walker

  • RedsLoveChild

    It was Greg Stiemsma

    “Steamer” blocked four consecutive shots KG attempted at a practice in early 2012…KG got totally frustrated….and cried about it to the Captain!

    • Dustin Chapman

      Actually, this wouldn’t surprise me. Stiemsma gets into a scuffle literally every single game lol

      • Frank Aziza

        No way. KG praised Stiemsma and said the C’s should sign him long term. KG really loved him.

        Scuffle? lol Stiemsma? lmfao steamer is a nice guy, he is not the type to get into a scuffle.
