Found January 15, 2013 on Red's Army:
PLAYERS: Kevin Garnett
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
The Globe’s Gary Washburn has a great nugget about Kevin Garnett, courtesy Charlotte coach Mike Dunlap. Dunlap then relayed a story he said he was told by a Raptors clubhouse attendant. “He said, ‘Well one time Boston came up in here and lost and Garnett chucked a table in the locker room postgame,’ ” Dunlap said. “That’s kind of what I’m trying to promote with Jeff (Adrien).” File under: Not surprised in the least. Garnett had a dust-up last night with Gerald Henderson following a vicious foul that involved a whack to the head and push. I disagree with the officials assessment of a Flagrant 1. This move was clearly “unnecessary and excessive contact” by Henderson. If roles were reversed, Garnett would have been hit with a Flagrant 2 and ejected.
