I can remember watching it with all my cousins; the whole room went silent for about two seconds before we all asked, eyes wide, “Did you see the length of that middle finger?”Pictures of KG’s middle finger exist online (see below), but they aren’t as impressive as my memory. In my mind, I swear his middle finger was at least the size of a 3-iron when he used it to flip off Crawford (or whoever else it might have been). Sadly, the moment doesn’t exist on YouTube so I can’t share it. You’ll have to trust me; that day, at least, KG’s middle finger was like E.T.’s on steroids.Two relatively recent photos will have to suffice, but I swear they don’t do KG’s middle finger justice.
