Kevin Garnett has been in the business of pressing his opponents’ buttons by talking a whole bunch of trash for a long time.

The most recent and obvious example of this is his scuffle with Carmelo Anthony after Garnett allegedly told Melo that his wife “tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.”

Since then, there’s been a great deal of discussion about whether or not Garnett is crossing the line with his in-game trash-talk on various media and sports outlets.

Joakim Noah however, offered a much more comical view on the subject following the Bulls’ 100-98 overtime win over the Celtics.

The Chicago Tribune’s K.C. Johnson asked Noah about Garnett’s actions. “He’s a helluva competitor. He’s always on some bulls*#t, trying to throw elbows, cheap shots, trying to get you off your game.”

When asked if Garnett was indeed crossing the line Noah responded, “When we lose, I feel like he crosses the line. But since we’ve been beating their asses, I’m cool with it.”

Zing.

RedsArmy presents Fan Friday #38: “Not Feeling Minnesota”

Terrell H. is a Celtics fan from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He’s been a fan of the Celtics since around 2007 when his hero, Kevin Garnett, was traded there. As a boy, seeing KG play at the Target Center was what first got him interested in hoops. He immediately “connected” with Garnett, and was amazed at his intensity: I have been a Celtic Fan since the Summer of 2007, the KG...

Kevin Garnett Calls Anthony Davis ‘Freak of Nature,’ Says Hornets Rookie Makes Him Feel ‘Like a Midget’

BOSTON — On the surface, Anthony Davis seems to have a lot in common with a young Kevin Garnett. The lithe rookie for the New Orleans Hornets is just as freakishly athletic at 6-foot-10 as Garnett was as a 19-year-old for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1995. Just like a young Garnett, Davis’ potential is clear despite a mostly up-and-down rookie campaign. Playing against Davis...

Charles Barkley, Shaq Don’t Think Kevin Garnett Deserves To Be All-Star Starter

Speaking on TNT NBA Tip-off, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal said Garnett, who received 553,222 votes, the least among the 10 starters, didn’t deserve the honor this year. “I love Kevin Garnett, but he’s not having an All-Star year,” Barkley said. “It’s not fair to Tyson Chandler. He should be starting in the All-Star Game.” “Tyson Chandler should be starting...

Joakim Noah Talks Up Kevin Garnett’s ‘Cheap Shots’ After Beating Celtics

On Friday night, after the Bulls beat the Celtics 100-99 in overtime, Joakim Noah said he didn’t want to talk too much, and especially not about Kevin Garnett, with whom Noah tangled again on Friday night and about whom Noah has had some pointed words in the past. So on Friday, Noah did not go as far as to say that Garnett was a dirty player, as he has alleged before. Instead,...

Comments from the Other Side - Bulls 1/18

Bulls fans sure do hate KG and Rondo.  I think it comes from having their own center and PG out played by them so many times.   It was great that even the Bulls fans realize that they were given that game by the refs.  That was a horrible call on the jumpball.  Pierce was clearly fouled. No call.  Rondo also signaled for a time out in Marc Davis' face and wasn't given...

Celtics - Pistons box score and highlights

Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee both scores 16 points, a game high, and Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple double, notching 8 points, 9 rebounds, and 15 assists. Box score below, highlights...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Bulls 1/18

The Celtics have lost. This one really sucked. We had a lead with a few seconds left in both the fourth and in OT, yet we couldn't catch a break. Rondo played amazing: putting in 30 points, 2 rebounds, and 7 assists. Unfortunately, he fouled out mid-way through overtime. This one stings and I just want to move on, but I won't. Tonight's underrated stat of the night...

Sherman, on Crabtree: I hope to 'choke him out'

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman and WR Michael Crabtree treated us to one of most epic battles of the 2013 NFL season in the NFC Championship Game. The two were matched up against each other time and time again, and at the end of the day, Sherman won—tipping a jump-ball to teammate LB Malcolm Smith for the game-securing interception in the red zone.
