Kevin Garnett Explains Not Shaking Hands With Ray Allen


When Ray Allen tried to make peace with former teammate Kevin Garnett last night, KG hilariously gave him the cold shoulder. Garnett explained his rationale after the Boston Celtics lost the season opener to the Miami Heat. From the Boston Globe: “Garnett was asked why he passed on greeting Allen: ‘You know what man, I was just trying to stay as neutral as I could but obviously I’m an intense person. Other than it was blank, I just saw the Heat uniforms and obviously he’s on the other side and I just tried to play the game, man.’”

    I wouldn’t look into any of this too much….until KG is standing over Ray’s dead body…then maybe

  • Redd

    Yes then we can decide they’re not cool with each other. I don’t care about this but maybe you over exaggerated a bit man lol.

    RAY ALLEN 19 POINTS FROM THE BENCH…
    GARNETT?

  • robb

    KG’s intensity is always a good excuse to justify his behavior. KG’s a punk and he’ll be one till the day he dies. Is that simple.

    Garnett’s not the one that let him go

    yea where was that 19 in the playoffs for us last year, or the year in 2010 against the lakers in the finals when ray went invisible after that 3pt barrage in gm2…yea ok then, you point is moot

    KG is a competitor 1st. crowd pleaser 2nd…

    Ray knew how Garnett felt, he set himself up for that. I don’t get what the problem is. You think if Starks left the Knicks for the Pacers or Bulls one summer, Ewing and Oak would be all buddy buddy with him the next season. This whole culture of everyone being best friends in the league is getting tired. I’m not saying guys can’t be cool, but if they don’t feel like smilingin the oopponents face during the game, it shouldn’t be an issue.

    KG should have said ‘we only have 90 seconds for handshakes now. One more would have put us over the limit’.

  • hillbilly

    Right on, JC. Heat fans need to enjoy this while it lasts. Come playoff time, the only place you’ll see Ray Allen is on the back of a milk carton.

  • Yana

    LOL

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    KG came into the league in 95. Old school. One of the few left from that era. Ray should have known what the deal was. Either he was trying to be the nice guy or he just wasn’t thinking. Big ups to Doc Rivers showing love though.

    If I was Ray Allen, after KG did that I would have said “Anthony Peeler says wassup” lmaooo

  • http://twitter.com/_DFrance DFrance

    I know right, that bastard only gave that poorly run franchise 12 of his prime years when they gave him no real chance to win. What a backstabber! Seriously what on earth are you talking about?

  • Reedo

    right honestly. ifeel like KG is all bark and no bite now. we are living off what he used to do. Timmy gives KG buckets like no other I’ve seen Amare have his way with him. KG has one ring because he abused Pau Gasol.. *news flash * Caryl Landry uses Pau Gasol and Elton Brand gave him numbers last night. idk i respect KG to a certain levelhe’she’s slightly over rated.. I don’t feel like he is really that good

  • 1tail

    Well when u use him as a decoy 90% of the time, then say hey ice cold guy hitba 3, that’s watch u get. Boston took away what he really was and made him a “specialist”

  • Gman

    Ray knows, which is why he tapped his shoulder.

  • Gman

    Kind of like Garnett missing the playoffs… hmm didnt Ray Ray help them then.. Man fickle fans.

    Loyalty goes a long way..How do expect Garnett to react when this douchebag goes and play for rivals Miami…KG is a competitor not a crowd pleaser or an ass sucker like Alllen

    Hey! What’s the problem with Garnett? “20 boys can never play together for 20 years” At one point in life we all have to make some tough decisions. Certain circumstances in life put us in a position that is beyond our control. Ray A. had to make a decision that was best for him and his family, who is Garnett to turn against him? Garnett should grow up and stop his petty behaviour. I am sure, if the situation is reversed, Garnett will do same thing. Ray A. is a cool gentleman and I’m sure he doesn’t have anything against Garnett. The next time Garnett act like that, I suggest Ray A. put him on a back burner. Life goes on guys. We are here today and gone tomorrow; make the best of your time in the lime light. I wish both of them a great life. Make it a great day.

  • CMH

    YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT. KG WAS TRADED TO BOSTON YOU DUMB ASS!

  • KG04MVP

    I don’t care how old this post is. You are an idiot. He was traded and Kevin McHale practically had to go to KG’s house with the National Guard and force him out. Do your research before you open your mouth.

    GOOD MORNING BUBBY: I{I AM A DAY LATE & SO SORRY} “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” {MAY 16th} ! I FOLLOW YOU SATURDAY ! NOW REGUARDLESS OF THE SITUATION (& YES) IT WAS NOT GOOD ! I HAVE FOLLOWED YOU & RAY-RAY FROM DAY ONE IN THE NBA & TO SEE YOU TWO FINALLY WIN A RING {TOGETHER} AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS & TO TOP IT OFF ALL OF YOU BROKE ALL KINDS OF MILESTONES & RECORDS THAT OTHER TEAMS ARE STILL TRING TO DO TODAY JUST LOOK AROUND YOU. WHAT HURTS THE MOST WAS LOSING RAY-RAY TO THE ONE {PERSON} WE WOULD NEVER WANT HIM TO GO TO ! WE ALL KNOW HOW MUCH PAT R. HATES THE CELTICS & HE NOW HAS RAY-RAY ON HIS HEAT ROUSTER ! BUT ALL IN ALL LIFE IS WAY TOO SHORT & YOU TWO “DO HAVE A SPECIAL BOND” BELEIVE IT OR NOT ! THIS REALLY GOES INTO THE LAPS OF THE OWNERSHIP OF THE CELTICS, HOW DO THEY ALLOW A MAN THAT LITERALLY “SHUT DOWN” AN ARENA WHEN HE BROKE REGGIE MILLERS TITLE {SHOOTING} ! I SAAW THAT GAME & CRIED WITH HIS MOM & THE REST OF THE PEOPLE THAT REALLY CARED !

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Diann-Barnes/100003250729365 Diann Barnes

    YES ! YOU ARE RIGHT TO A POINT ! WHEN YOU LOOK @ THE ENTIRE PICTURE, THOSE TWO CAME IN THE LEAGUE @ APROX. THE SAME TIME & PLAYED BALL FOR DECADES W/O WINNING A TITLE. WHEN THE OFFER CAME FOR BUBBY {A.K.A GARNETT} TO COME TO A TEAM SUCH AS BOSTON THE POT HAD TO BE SWEETENED FOR HIM TO LEAVE MINN. TIMBERWOLVES THAT’S WHERE RAY-RAY CAME INTO THE PICTURE & WITH THE DEFENSIVE COACH AS THE DOCTOR & HIS ASSISTANT THEY WENT ON A TEAR & WON AFTER “22 YEARS” IN THE HOLE ! IF THE CELTIC ORGANAZATION WOULD HAVE MADE THE EFFORT TO MAKE CERTAIN PLAYERS FEEL @ HOME {& THEY DID NOT} RAY-RAY WOULD STILL BE THERE WITH BUBBY & THEY PROBABLY WOULD HAVE MORE THAN (1) TITLE. I WOULD SAY THAT MAYBE BOO-BOO {A.K.A RONDO} MAY HAVE A LITTLE SOMETHING TO DO WITH HIM LEAVING. BUT LOOK @ WHO RAY-RAY WENT TO PLAY FOR. LETS FACE IT PAT RIELY DON’T CARE TWO CENTS ABOUT HAVING THE GREATEST SHOOTER IN THE GAME TODAY, TO HIM IT’S JUST ONE MORE UP ON THE CELTICS A TEAM HE HATES WITH A PASSION & THIS GOES BACK TO THE 1980′s ! CELTICS LOST A LOT OF GREAT PLAYERS & KEPT A LOT OF BUMS OFF THE BENCH & AS MUCH AS I LOVE THEM THEY WILL END UP BACK IN THAT HOLE THEY WERE IN !

    MY KIND OF PUCK ! I LOVE ANYONE WHO PLAYS WHO THE HEART OF A CHAMPION !

  • LarryLurex70

    Non-story. Still, KG had his war face on and Allen should’ve recognized as much and not forced the issue.

  • naturallyinsane1

    For a bunch of flops

  • tax payer

    Sure, all he saw was the jersey. Racist he can’t be called since they are of the same Race.

  • Busta213

    KG had to sign off on the trade – Boston wouldnt do it unless he agreed to sign a longer deal. E.g. he had veto’d a move to Boston prior to the Ray Allen trade.

  • george987789

    WHAT A PUNK

  • athanasia columbus

    Stephen Marbury left the Timberwolves because he wasn’t making KG money KG stayed in Minnesota too long

  • kreiea
