Spike Lee Wants Kevin Garnett to Quit Cussing Him Out

The list of people who are mad at KG seems to grow by the day. Super-fan Spike Lee is the latest person to publicly complain about Garnett’s behavior (though, the filmmaker might not be entirely innocent in the matter.) From ESPN: “But this last time against Boston — you know that game where they disallowed Stoudemire’s three? — Kevin Garnett lost it. He was cursing me out for no reason. Maybe because Stoudemire gave him 39 points, but take that vulgarity to Stoudemire. I’m not holding you and I did not even say s— to Garnett the whole game. That really surprised me. He lost it. He was cursing at me the whole game. He needs to calm the f— down … Next time they come — [Spike checks the Knicks schedule] — is on March 21st. So look, I don’t like the Celtics, but I respect Doc [Rivers]. Doc’s a good friend. You know I love Ray Allen. I hate the Celtics, but look, they’ve got good guys on that team. I’ve got friends on that team. Nate’s on the team. But Garnett needs to calm the f— down. There’s no reason he should be cursing at me the way he did the last game. So you can put that in the article. It was disrespectful and I would never do nothing like that to him.”

  • T-Money

    P*ssy never picks on anyone his own size. Well, unless you count slapping TD’s head from behind back in the day. Which I don’t.

  • tRay

    Spike really?! This is the same dude that was giving Reggie hell back in the day now he wants to be all innocent. SMH

  • Mitya

    I think Spike should take is as a compliment, because that means KG treats him just as one of the guys on the opposing team who actually play the game.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    KG will turn around and say he’s not gonne discuss nobodies. Again.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    ROFL @ JdotD’s link. Spike’s reaction in that video is hilarious!

  • http://www.twitter.com/TheDiesel Anton

    KG and Eddie House are neck-and-neck for the MVD award this season.

  • Riggs

    really spike? you didnt say anything to him all game? funny because i was at that game and every time amare made a shot over him when KG was guarding him you stood up and said something. Even when amare’s shot looked like it counted you were the first person talking ish! so lets make a deal, KG stops cussin when you start making good movies again.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    Has Jack come out and b*tched about Garnett yet? Who cares what these guys think, it’s an emotional game, there’s gonna be some collateral damage. Especially if you play along.

  • bashmo

    looool Riggs made me laugh wit that one

  • Heals

    Spike your gunna have to take a number and get inline (bring something to kill time)…

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Inside Man was pretty good. And as a New Orleans resident, the levees movies were good to me.

  • MusketeerX

    Just KG being a jerk, per usual.

  • robb

    KG will be KG and there’s nothing you can do about it Spike. Have fun with it.

  • theDankerNuggets

    If you pride yourself in being such a polarizing fixture at Knicks games (as he cannot deny he does) then you have expect this

  • MikeC.

    I consider Spike to be part of the Knicks franchise. That puts him in the line of fire. If KG’s giving it to him, give it right back.

  • http://JRI.com JRI

    Typical KG, the man has no class and can not conduct himself in a professional manner not even for the sake of being a good role model. Look at the superstars in the league Kobe, Lebron, Dwade, D-Rose, KD……these guys show so much more self control than KG does, people say its his passion that makes him great but they often mistake his ‘passion’ for lack of class and sportsmanship.

    Youd never guess he skipped college (way to conform to a stereotype of young black athletes with no class KG) Im black and it makes me pretty mad when he acts like that because people like him make it hard for young black men to be taken seriously and for people to not have an opinion of us before we open our mouths.

    @riggs….woah lets not even go there..Spike practically craps out good cinematography, lets not question his genius in that arena… but yeah, hard for anyone to believe KG was unprovoked

  • ab40

    spike is an idiot you can go on and write that in an article

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Co-sign Black Rick Kamla.


    Kevin Garnett is faux tough. lol

  • robb

    @ab40 Spike is an idiot?? wow.

  • Brahsef


    Only arguably the greatest black director of all time. Smh

  • Ali Saadat

    All this sh*t about KG being the heart and soul and the most emotional player is nothing but bullcrap. I hate Garnett, I like him in Minnesota. He really doesn’t do anything on the court but talk. Along with Bosh he is one of the most undeserving All Star.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    And I don’t think it’s very much of an argument, Brahsef.

  • The Fresh Prince of Nsam

    I miss Spike’s black movies though (I don’t like the Tyler Perrys)

  • O

    I heard KG wouldn’t punch a guy in glasses. So you good, Spike. Sidenote: Spike, bring back those old school “CROOKLYN” hats with the 4OA on the back. I miss that hat like a MF!

  • O

    And I mean the REAL “CROOKLYN” hat that could only be found at “Spikes Joint” right next to Brooklyn Tech High School. Anyone remember that?!

  • MikeC.

    KG gets a lifetime pass from me for all the extra-curricular stuff he pulls. He was loyal to the T-Wolves to a fault. He wanted to drag them to a title despite McHale’s incompetence and didn’t come to a ‘Decision’ to bail on them until he was already past him prime and seeing the end of his career lurking on the horizon. He still didn’t publicly demand a trade or tantrum his way out of town. He asked management to trade him and went about his business. They did him a solid and traded him to a contender (he did have the extension card to play). I think his outbursts are just an extended ode to the joy of winning. For someone who puts his all into the game, he’s finally with a team and organization that puts forth the same effort. If you want to shut him up, beat his team.

  • MikeC.

    *his prime*

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    KG didn’t publicly demand a trade because there wasn’t facebook and twitter yet. possibly no email too. matter of fact, he’s so old he used the pony express to deliver that contract.

  • http://hoopistani.blogspot.com hoopistani

    Dear BossTerry: NBA players were demanding trades and unsettling franchises WAY before facebook/twitter/email/internet. KG stayed loyal to his team for as long as he could, and he will do the same with the Celtics

    Sting and the Police wrote a song for this specific kind of incident decades ago, “dont stand so, don’t stand so, don’t so close to me (you midget in funny spectacles)”
