Another day, another NBA player expressing his dislike for Kevin Garnett. Today’s edition comes from Chicago Bulls big man, Joakim Noah. Noah tells a story of once adoring Kevin Garnett so much that he had a poster of him on his wall. But now that he’s been around Garnett for a couple of years now, he thinks that Garnett is a big ol meany head. And he’s ugly. And he’s not getting a Christmas gift from him.
[Joakim] Noah has gone from a fan who once had a Garnett poster in his room to someone who probably has a Garnett photo on his dartboard.
“Kevin Garnett will not — will not — get a Christmas gift from me,” Noah said with a tinge of humor Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I don’t like him.”
The feud started, or perhaps escalated, during last season’s playoffs. After Garnett was suspended for throwing an elbow at Quentin Richardson, Noah — who was in Cleveland playing the Cavaliers — chimed in that Garnett was a “dirty player.”
The most recent incident was Friday night in Boston when Noah received a technical foul, and afterward said of Garnett: “He is who he is.”
“He’s a very mean guy,” Noah said Wednesday. “Where’s the love? None at all. Ugly, too.”
I agree. Where is the love? But I have to ask, when did Joakim Noah turn into [insert any man that you may think is handsome]? Oh, he never did? That’s what I thought.
