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.”
