It’s not everyday that something gets written that screams IRONY. But today is one of those days. ESPN decided to let an anonymous player use their platform to basically annihilate Kevin Garnett by calling him a “coward and a punk”. And what’s ironic is that only cowards and punks call other men cowards and punks behind their backs.
But that didn’t stop ESPN or this Player X to cowardly call Kevin Garnett a coward and a punk.
Garnett is a punk and a coward. I know, I know. Easy for me to say behind this column. Don’t worry, I’ll tell him to his face, too.
Sure you would. Actually, just by putting your name on the column, you could be doing that very thing. But you didn’t. And you won’t.
But please, continue.
And I’m not the only one who thinks that: If you’re not on his team, chances are you hate the guy. You can learn a lot about him by watching his eyes. If he’s talking to you — and he’s always talking — he avoids eye contact. My advice to other guys in the league: Stare him down, and he’ll retreat. From what I’ve seen, he’ll never mix it up with a player who’s bigger than he is. Personally, I think he’s scared to fight — like a playground bully who barks but doesn’t bite.
But I have to admit, the Celtics are the most talkative guys in the league. And that makes sense, because it’s the mark of a championship team. Mouths help you win big games. Ray Allen got mean in Boston, and Paul Pierce will look at you, say, “Stop this,” then drop a J on your head.
Does Player X have a point?
Is Kevin Garnett a coward and a punk?
Does this column make Player X just as big a coward and punk as Garnett?
