Video: Kevin Garnett is Taunting Opposing Players Already

Just because it’s a meaningless preseason game, doesn’t mean that KG has to reign in his madness on the defensive end. No, sir. (For what it’s worth, Andrea Bargnani and his teammates claimed that Garnett’s antics didn’t bother them.)

    K.G still my guy, used to be my favorite, but he still the man.

  • IndyG

    I remember a couple years ago when he was literally barking at Calderon. If only someone would go all Anthony Peeler on him again

    ^this was me, damn slam, get this ish fixed.

  • LA Huey

    Gonna miss this guy when he finally hangs them up.

  • underdog

    I honestly can’t remember, if he had always been like this, or just ever since he’s moved to Bean town. He had his fights in Minny but as far as I remember he always stayed classy. Not to mention he was a MVP and an All-Star back there.

    yes, we’re back. God, I missed u KG

  • robb

    now THIS is a fake tough guy. Even smaller players like A. Peeler would kick his skinny @ss.

    damn, the audsquad comment was mine. smh

    Used to love him on Minny but since the Celts he has become a jerk with an ego on the CRT

  • Red

    Too bad celtics suck now

  • smoove

    its just a tactic pansies, anyone that played bball before knows at least one person that likes to taunt on the court get over it, no matter what you say yall would love to have KG on ya team.if not phu -q

  • Sparty’s Law

    This would bother me more if it was directed at someone other than Bargnani – he doesn’t deserve anyone’s respect.

  • Red

    I don’t want KG on my team I’d rather him stay on the Celtics & continue losing. He’s old & sucks and just like shaq he’s bitter about it.

  • T-Money

    kg was my favorite player in high school, the reason why i first lvoed the game, really. he was doing things bigs were not supposed to do and for a tall skinny cat like me, that was so refreshing. and his love for the game was contagious. now, i hate him. perhaps he was always like that and i was just a blind fan? i dunno.

  • http://nba.com GP23

    The Celtics are toast now!!

  • http://slamonline.com Saviour

    He got monster blocked twice in that game so karma is a b*tch.

  • Jay cutler

    Hardly the meanest thing that gets said or done on a basketball court. Bunch of boys in frilly panties here.

  • bike

    Bargnani should have brought the ball right across Garnett’s face hard enough to knock his tongue out his ear.

  • http://www.twitter.com/hurstysyd Hursty

    I’m not even mad at this. I’m just glad the NBA is back.

  • Heals

    What a shocker here comes all the KG’s this and C’s are that from the usual suspects. Other than LAL no team had a better run the past 4 years so who cares that they will fall off this year it’s natural. I know most folks in this generation lack perspective and reference, but ya’ll are just too cute when comes to anything KG or Celtic…

  • ripslam

    @JTaylor: It’s not his fault the entire Raptors roster is little guys and Europeans…

  • http://www.slamonline.com quest

    I LOVE KEVIN GARNETT.OH MY GOSH,its not as acceptable because hes not a superstar anymore but this junk works on about 80 per cent of the nba so why stop?

  • http://shinefluid@aol.com yada

    this is how KG plays. he played this way in HS. he played this way in minnesota its just that how often do ppl watch alot of timberwolves games. this is how he gets himself in the game. appreciate it, cause like sheed u gonna miss his style when he’s gone

  • http://www.slamonline.com Slick Ric

    Hope my name is up, it’s gonna be a pleasure to kick the knicks a** this season.

  • riggs

    He’s been this way since High school, if you didnt know that you were never a fan and should stfu honestly.

  • Heals

    I hope so Ric, but I dunno it’s gonna be a entertaining fight for the Atlantic division for the first time in a while this year…

  • aotearaw

    Used to hate this dude until I traded Bosh for him in my 2k12 online Association. Money on the fadeaway!

  • http://skjflf.com Jukai

    I just want to see KG say things like this to someone considered tough. That’s all. He only seems to do this to smaller players, or skinny (and white) players his size. The toughest player he has picked on was Charlie Villanueva. Eh.

  • JP

    ^He’s punched Dwight Howard on the arm a few times. I don’t think Dwight is smaller, skinny, white, or his size – yet KG still physically hit him for really no reason. Not sure if Dwight is tough, but still…

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    Yall kill me with this “he’s been a jerk since he got to the Celtics” crap. KG has ALWAYS been a jerk like this, the Wolves were just never covered in the media so you didn’t know. He once MUSHED Tim Duncan in the head for absolutely no reason. And its all mind games, he’s not doing it because he’s a tough guy or because he wants to fight. He picks certain players that he knows he can get under their skin and throw them off their game, that doesn’t generally apply to the better players. Anyway, I love it!

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    KG is a genius, hes got everyone talking about his “taunting”, and no one seems to notice he got beat on the dribble and called for a foul emmidiatly after.

  • BostonBaller

    Cmon fellas, taunting? If it weren’t KG you’d say the guy was pumped and playing challenging D. It’s only preseason and the hate is already there. If Kobe or LBJ did this it wouldn’t be a big deal to anyone except those who hated them. I’d be fine with it, When a player crotch grabs, finger points etc then come to me w/ the taunting comments. how many said Dikembo taunted?

  • http://www.t-mac.com/tmac/index unf*ckwitable

    Some dudes need to grow some balls, nothing wrong with a little talk out there. I’d much rather see dudes on the team i go for taunting the opposition then slapping em five and laughing and joking all game, FUK THAT.

  • Encz

    I would rather have a crazy KG than an effing lockout

  • ClydeSays

    KG has always been that guy. If you weren’t watching him play for the TWolves, you probably never saw it. I love it. He’s one of the most entertaining guys in the L since he made the jump…

  • http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/h/hamilri01.html Allenp

    Co-sign DFrance.
    He actually was wolfing in the middle of fight, Tim Duncan walked up to see what was happening, and KG hit him in the back in the head.
    Then another time he just mushed him in the face.
    He’s been doing it to cats for years, it’s not new. And, when he was younger he wanted to fight more, but now it’s just to see if a dude is soft. I’m not justifying it, just pointing out that it’s not like he got on the Celtics and got brand new.
    I think that since his skills have declined, people are just less tolerant.

  • http://Slamonline.com Sheldon Mease

    KG sucks what a clown. If I was the owner I would bench his ass!!

  • http://www.realgm.com nate james

    I remember KG with the Wolves and he would do sh it like this all the time. Like he would slap the floor hardcore and be like “LETSS GOOO!” “BRING IT” with slobber coming out of his mouth. I thought it was an excorsism. I was waiting for his head to start twisting. haha

  • JohnVancouver

    Like to see KG try this ish on John Brisker or Wendell Ladner, or Paul Silas

  • mike

    He’s cheap,He never mouthed off to malone,barkley or shaq.

  • dr phil nz

    kg has barked at everybody, shaq included.. hell he was the lippiest high school to pro I ever saw! he was like a rabid dog waiting to feed, its raw aggression, who cares if its a show to a certain extent, so is kobes underbite, mikes tongue etc. Barkley did the same thing for years..

    build a bridge & get over it cos at 87 years old he aint changing..

  • max

    U guys tend to forget that sure peeler knocked him one on his face but kg didn’t fall down. He literally shook I t off and smiled ( that pumped him up even more). What kg does works for him if it didn’t he wouldn’t have the kind of effect on his teammates and opponents that it does. U can say whatever u want about the guy barkin and swearin up a storm but the guy plays his heart out and plays the right way

  • Shifty

    People forget e made all defensie team last season. And how he gets there is the way he acts on the floor which is barking at guys and praying on the weak. If your a weak dude in the league u deserve to get hounded on. It’s a professional sport where your not here to make friends with the opposing team. You give it to them KG. one of my favs.
