Kevin Garnett: Charlie Villanueva Is a ‘Nobody’

Up until now KG was claiming there was a misunderstanding and he simply called the Pistons‘ big man a ‘cancer’ to his team and the NBA. Last night, Garnett dismissed the beef — and Villanueva. From the Boston Herald: “’He’s a nobody,’ Garnett said. ‘I’m not paying attention to nobodies any more.’

    So, basically he is exactly the type of guy that KG picks on.

    ha i like ya style kg jus dont even worry bout it n shrug it off like it aint nothin

  • rich

    really cuz picking on peeler didnt work so well and he got slapped by lamarcus aldridge. i love kgs intensity but i dont see why anyone would be afraid of saying something back to him. charlie could have avoided this twitter thing if he just called anthony peeler and gave him a courtside seat next time they play

  • Fat Lever

    It’d be great if an opposing crowd just started chanting “Peeler, Peeler!” at KG at every road game.

  • fizzball

    CV plays for one of the worst teams in the East, is overpaid, and underachieves. It’s kinda true.

  • MikeC.

    The Pistons fell far really fast. It feels like Chauncey was traded like 6 years ago, but it was just two years ago. In hindsight, maybe they should have tried to trade Rip for AI.

  • LeBron de Con

    In 5 years, KG will be a 7 foot nobody. A former somebody and future HOF inductee but still a nobody.

    ^thats stupid

  • LeBron de Con

    ^Exactly. but true

  • http://itsahardwoodlife.blogspot.com omphalos

    ^No… not true. In 5 years Kevin Garnett will still be known by basketball fans. People are still talking about Hakeem, Dominique Wilkins and other retired players, can’t see why KG would be any different.

    KG is a PUNK, crying on TV, picking on nobodies. I hope CV beats him up .

  • jake

    Kg is an idiot.he used to be my second favorite players but he’s a classless a hole.last week he called the lakers nobodies too and that didn’t make the news.

    IE: “He’s not gonna attack me like Bogut did so I ain’t scared of him, I’m gonna keep harassing him on the court!”

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    I’ve said it before, im surprised KG doesn’t get more delay of game warnings, when on the road, after a time-out or quarter, he often walks to center court drying himself with a towel, and then simply drops it at half-court, causing a ball boy to come running.. I like KG, and think hes a great player, but yes, kinda an a$shole..

    It’s the truth, this is the most I’ve EVER heard Villenueva’s name.

  • TrailBlazing&SportingLisbon

    @c_cantrell, youre an idiot if you think this is average, just a fool with nothing good to offer here..AND FRAZIER IS LIKE MILES AWA FROM EVERY COLOR ANNOUCER OUT THERE, love that dude branblin & scramblin

  • TrailBlazing&SportingLisbon

    this^^^ should have been in the slamadaday, and KG´s a frontrunning pu$$y!

  • K.a.

    I like the peeler chant idea

  • flash

    this should serve as motivation for CV and should try to improve his game. if he gets better hed be thanking KG someday for calling him out

  • flash

    KG reminds me of DMX, got more crazy as they get older

  • flash

    KG reminds me of DMX, got more crazy as they grew older

  • lando

    I honestly don’t think that KG would say something like that and mean it in that sorta way. Villanueva’s reaction is funny though, I would liek to see that fight.

  • EJ

    I thought CV was a cancer patient.

  • Jackie Moon

    I think “nobody” is a downgrade from “cancer patient”.

    Good sirs, I posit that KG is something of a female Canis lupus familiaris.

    Is it too late for some politically correct trash talk? It was all the rage back in the day (earlier this week).

  • rob

    ya’ll leave KG alone. CV is a nobody. hasnt done a damn thing in his career. KG has fu#$% rings. so DROP IT! ok? a future hof like that can talk all the shit he wants, he can back it up. anthony peeler? tht ni@@a is workin at a f$$%^& supermarket right now, broke as hell, with a drinkin problem. its funny how all of you can talk about how much of a pussy he is. ya’ll r all p@$$ies compared to him.

  • youngmuggsy

    How long until somebody on this page praises KGs intensity and passion?

  • ltron

    kg is a punk **s b**ch. who doesnt stand up to anyone the same size as him, picking on guards.

  • flipnoyce

    CV and KG are getting paid millions of dollars to battle it out on the court. On the other hand we’re just spectators judging from a distance of the game we love, but I bet half of the people who write on SLAM don’t even play ball. But, somehow knows the game like they are a bunch of pros. I’m not calling CV a sissy, but I bet you he’s never been in a fight either. To a simple fact of how he looks like. At the end of the day people would remember what you DID on the court and not what you SAID. IF CV is really as tough as he lead himself to believe then he should do something about it next BOSTON vs DETROIT game(12/29/10).

  • flipnoyce

    Oh, and if I have to pick between those two nobodies I think I’ll still choose KG. I don’t like whiners on my team. Man up or shut up!

  • amir

    you stay classy, KG..

  • Krisjanis

    haha, I like the Idea about the chanting too. would be nice. and he’d be able to pick up some girls courtside, if he’d be afraid of big sport-stars.
    and yes, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FASClJTnJ4I

  • Yes.We.Did.

    If CV would’ve gon up to KG and started talkin ish about malik sealy, would we be having this conversation in reverse?

  • JTaylor21

    If he was a nobody why did you feel the need to talk “trash” to him RIDDLE ME THAT? Anyone that makes it to the NBA is a somebody even KBrown is one.

  • lazaruz

    wow biggest rat, i spose boogie is a no body too which gives you the right to take a purposeful swipe at his right elbow. seriously dont know how this guy hasnt had a suspension yet, probably in his career as well. also who would say you are a cancer to your team on the court?

  • http://hajrazigic@yahoo.com edi zigic

    come on KG! r u trying to tick me of!

  • http://hibachisabas.blogspot.com/ Toni Kukoc

    in NBA terms, i agree with KG.

  • ClydeSays

    You’d think CV would have a thicker skin. He grew up in Queens, played for hated UConn teams and has been on bad NBA teams. I’m guessing he’s heard every kind of isht thrown at him. Complaining on Twitter about another player is weak. Settle it on the court or forget it.

  • Hammer

    Like I said b4,who gives a f**k bout this s**t!? What is it the 4th day already!? Move on from this crap! If “charlies angels” wanted 2 do something he wouldve dun it right then and there. This is sum non-sensensical bulls**t!

  • flipnoyce

    ^^^^ couldn’t agreed more^^^^

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    “If he was a nobody why did you feel the need to talk “trash” to him RIDDLE ME THAT? ”
    Have you ever actually played a game of basketball, JTaylor?

  • Do Work

    KG is unbelievable…he wants to be known as one of the best but he acts like he hasnt been around the league for more than a day. I’ve always been a fan of finishing the fight rather than starting it…KG starts the fight, runs away, then talks about it as if he’s bad

  • JTaylor21

    Ugh, you only trash talk “good” players not to sorry a** players. I dont’ know about you but I only talk sh*t to players that are capable of doing something about it not to the bums.

  • Mark Lewis

    I’m a Celtic and have been since the early 80′s but KG just needs to shut up,there is no need to keep this thing going

  • KB8toSG8

    If you talk about skills, yeah CV is a nobody….but gotta stay classy, KG. Why isn’t the L warning KG about this like all other petty matters?

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    @JTaylor – So basically you like letting your opponents know you think they can beat you? Sounds like a sensible tactic.

  • vtrobot

    i come to these board for the great comedy. yeah, a guy who won MVP of the L, a ring for a legendary franchise, and set countless stat records for years is going to be a nobody soon. that makes perfect sense. so many people on these boards care so much about the non-b-ball side of b-ball. bunch of real housewives on these boards. good luck with that “peeler” chant. i’m sure that will slow down the C’s this year as they’re rolling over your team. everything that KG has done during his career and the worst you’re going to use against him is that light peeler forearm? that’s f*cking precious. a lot of you remind me of CV, except hairier.

  • JalepinoSausage

    and quote of the day goes to : ‘LeBron de Con’ — ‘In 5 years, KG will be a 7 foot nobody. A former somebody and future HOF inductee but still a nobody.’ Great Sum Up Man !!!
