Garnett Considers Noah a ‘Nobody’

The Big Ticket shut up Joakim Noah and the Bulls last night, exacting a bit of revenge with in a 104-92 win in Boston. From WEII.com: “’I’m going to tell you something about people, man,’ Garnett began. ‘Everybody has an opinion, and obviously, he had one. I’m not entertaining nor addressing nobodies. I’m not even entertaining them. I’m focused on basketball and these wins and trying to make this team better. Other than that, I’m not on anything.’ Asked specifically if he considered Noah a ‘nobody,’ Garnett smiled, winked and said more with less. Like he did with Milwaukee’s Andrew Bogut exactly a month earlier at the Garden. ‘Next question,’ he responded. A ‘nobody’ was exactly what he called Milwaukee’s Andrew Bogut a month earlier to the day after a game at TD Garden. Must be something about the third of the month.”

    I like Bogut and Noah as players, but they should know better than to give KG extra

  • Mitya

  • ben2424

    No longer a KG fan but you gotta respect a man who lets his game do the talking especially against an opponent who has been talking ish* about him lately. 20/17/6/2/1 is enough said.

  • benno

    KG speaking the truth – what i don’t get is, how noah called kg ugly. Noah is butt ugly – he needs a haircut, a shave and some braces, and even then he is UGLY!

  • Vince5

    I’m pretty sure if somebody calls KG “hasbeen”, he’s gonna regret it.

  • http://google c_cantrell

    wouldnt really call noah (one the best centers in the league and by far the best hustler) a nobody.. but on another note good game by kg he hasnt had a game like that since 08

  • slamfan4life

    KG is a f*g

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Kg is correct.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jahmai

    Noah isn’t a nobody, but he shouldn’t call out KG either, but wtf has Ugly to do with basketball players, Noah isn’t trying to land a GQ cover or something. Noah has improved alot since his 1st year in the league, everybody thought he would be ‘nobody’ but he’s exceeded expectations and he deserves respect for that. (Not saying he’s better than KG, people, don’t trip. :P )

    I kinda like that KG is still a great competitor, even if you dislike his personality you got to give him credit for being one of the best PFs in the game,regardless what stats say

  • Josh

    KG talks too much. For the person that said he lets his game do the talking, no, he lets his mouth do the talking and then on rare occasions has enough is his knees to attempt to back it up.

  • http://slamonline.com kobehater

    he is good, but that doesnt mean he has 2 b a ass to everybody else

  • Jackie Moon

    Instead of asking who the nobodies are, ask KG who are the somebodies (that don’t play for the Celtics).

  • MikeC.

    KG isn’t a big media-talker. He woofs a lot on the court, but it’s rare that KG will offer an unsolicited opinion about another player to the media.

    co-sign KG

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    I’m not as high on KG as I used to be pre-championship, but the guy still has game if y’all hadn’t noticed.
    Definitely surprised me, to be honest. Did not expect him to get back to this level after seeing him in that leg brace.
    And Noah, dumb move, youngin’.

  • http://www.slamonline.com NickthaQuick

    @ Josh Obviously KG talks more than the average teen but I am referring to his battle of the uglies with Noah. Instead of making it a verbal war, he put up a pretty good game going up against Noah’s team. I don’t really care much for all this he-said she-said that the NBA has become. If you really dislike someone/some team so much, don’t just talk about it – go ahead and beat them/the team. That says more than anything else.

  • 2k champ

    I consider Noah a nobody because despite his hustle, his NBA trophy case is empty.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Wonder if he considers Antonio McDyess and Anthony Peeler “nobodies” too.

  • biged

    man the celtics are looking good so far…looking foward to the finals rematch. Laker vs Celtics will be a a super good match up…when both teams are 100% healthy and playing their best

    be sweet KG


    “Must be something about the third of the month”

    KG didn’t mean that…he was probably on his period.

  • Quail

    the 3rd must be the time the little b!tch is on his period.


    McDyess and Peelers are nobodies…

  • LeBron de Con

    In 5 years, KG will be going door-to-door selling ish.

  • LeBron de Con

    Enigmatic — KG found out McDyess is a somebody when KG nearly got his nobody azz handed to him.

  • Thegfunk

    Didnt Slam do a Le Coq Sportif piece on him? His Dad is a famous tennis player?
    Anyways gotta love Da Kids trash talk

  • T-Money

    fair is fair. noah called out kg out of the blue.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Kg killed Boozer not noah. Y’all weren’t paying attention. You telling me Boozer was guarding shaq?

  • http://slamonline.com JJAkroyd

    Bogut’s better than the both of them. And ACTUALLY lets his game do the talking. Many guys in the NBA could learn a thing or two from him.

  • tRay

    Bottom line KG gave them the business so people could hate his character but he’s still got game.

  • flipnoyce

    Some people were already calling KG A Has BEEN when he got injured a year after the CELTICS won 17, most people said he lost a step or two.LOOK at him now, back for a vengeance. As a matter of fact people are dissing the CELTICS as too old to play. TOO OLD to have the best records in the east right? Is BOGUT a PF or is NOAH, I missed it did KG became a center. SHOW UP or GET SHOWN UP. CELTICS all day!

  • Kyle

    KG is all talk… how soon he forgets how pathetic he was when playing in the Western Conference. He and the Wolves were swept by the Mavs with Dirk revealing him to be a scrub. Look up the numbers on basketball-reference.com. Dirk went off, and when the Wolves lost, Garnett only said, “must be nice to have help.” Well, both Sczerbziak and Billups had pretty huge numbers. Garnett couldn’t handle Dirk, though he was 2 years older and had been in the league 4 years longer.

    Garnett acts like a tough guy, well, has he ever been in a fight that wasn’t a 6 foot point guard? Think about it… in the playoffs a few years back when the Hawks took them to a gave 7. Zaza Pachulia stood up to him after Garnett tried to intimidate him… look at the replays, KG looks like he’s gonna piss his pants for about one second expecting the foreign young guy would back down.

    KG is gay, can’t fight, and overrated.

  • JD

    in comparison to KG – career wise, Noah is still considered a nobody.

  • Thegfunk

    Its great to watch Garnett in the 90s. He brings character to the leauge.

  • EJ

    I hope Kobe, Shaq or Duncan call KG a nobody.

  • William

    KG is a nobody in the fourth quarter down the stretch…


    It’s better to be a “has been” than a “never was” aka a Nobody. Just throwing my 2 cents in.

  • tavoris

    KG has a ring, an MVP trophy, a DPOY trophy, and more max salary than Noah will ever get. He can say whatever the fack he wants, because (relatively speaking) Noah IS a nobody.

  • flipnoyce

    @Kyle you talking about the same Pachulia who stumble on KG and drop flat to the floor like a mosquito hitting a windshield. KG’s game is more than basketball its psychological, he gets in people’s head. If KG really wants to fight he would have been fighting almost every game. KG is one smart mofo lets put it that way.HE PLAYS TO WIN. If KG is gay meaning happy then I guess he is. But, If you talking about homo I could honestly tell you that he probably slept with more woman than your fingers and toes combine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T99aL8j4yyc WATCH this is the video!

  • Justin

    I find it amusing that people let KG get away with the sh*t he says in a game and just call it him being “psychological”. When Dennis Rodman did it he was the scurge of the league. Now, I know Rodman did a lot more than KG but both were dirty players, both talked a lot to get into the heads of their opponents, and both did it all in the name of winning. What’s the difference between them?

  • Love4Humanity

    Bogut better than both of them???

    I guess Steph Curry is the best PG in the NBA too then huh

  • http://bulls.com Harry Twatter

    KG the has been!!!


    man i cant wait till this celtrick retires man he was good but he fell off and the talent less bigs in this new era are the only thing keepin him in the game hes got 2 yrs left max man and only big man fkin wit KG is Gasol no one else run wit him he made Noah close his mouth

  • LoganPilcher

    The ugly comment from Noah about KG is just funny… Who cares?
    Can’t a guy make a joke? If KG can’t respect the 2nd best rebounder in the league then so be it. I laughed when I heard it.

    Keep fueling that fire till the playoffs when things really get interesting for Da Bulls and Celtics who’ll both be in the playoffs. It’ll be good ball. I’d rather watch fugly ballers play good ball than GQ boys like D Wade and Lebron playing ugly “1 on 1″ type basketball… Keep building that rivalry for when it matters!

  • OvaChicken

    KG the has been & NOAH the Will Be. This look like a job for KARMA !
