Jo Runnin’ His Mouth Again!!

ESPN – Joakim Noah’s candor is a quality that separates the Chicago Bulls center from many athletes, and when the subject is Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett, Noah’s candor can turn into biting commentary. Noah has gone from a fan who once had a Garnett poster in his room to someone who probably has a Garnett photo on his dartboard. “Kevin Garnett will not — will not — get a Christmas gift from me,” Noah said with a tinge of humor Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I don’t like him.” “He is who he is.” “He’s a very mean guy,” Noah said Wednesday. “Where’s the love? None at all. Ugly, too.” Noah said what makes the relationship difficult is how big a fan he was of Garnett before entering the NBA in 2007. “I had his poster in my room,” Noah said. “I used to wear his jersey. And the truth is my rookie year, I was in admiration of this guy, and he kind of shut me down. “And he was very mean to me my rookie year. And he’s only mean to the young guys and the [European players], for some reason. I don’t know why, but that’s who he doesn’t like. He’s not nice. I talk a lot of trash out there, but c’mon, be a little sensitive. Be sweet.”

Love this guy. Anyone who talks shit about KG is fine in my book. Everyone this year is hating on Lebron and the Heat. Joakim, instead, decides to go after the real douche of the NBA – Kevin Garnett. The reason I hate KG isn’t because he’s a dirty ballplayer who talks shit. (Ron Artest is one of my favorite players) It’s the fact that Garnett tries to act like he’s the NBA’s “golden child” off the court. He talks to the press like he’s a great dude who’s done no harm in his life. In reality, he’s a douchebag (calling Charlie Villaneuva a cancer patient, giving cheap shots all over the court, etc.). So I’m gonna give some props to Joakim for finally giving the finger to the NBA by calling out their prodigal son.

    There is really no way to be critical of Noah here he is just being honest which can truly be a rare quality when it comes to individuals in the NBA. While Joakim’s banter can be seen as lashing out at Garnett I believe that it is about time that people set the record straight on the NBA’s golden boy seems to me like that at the most Garnett may be gold plated. The one positive thing I can say about Garnett is that he does seem to play hard most of the time or at least as much as you have to in the NBA and he has yet to get into any major trouble with the law.
