Ever since winning the 2007-2008 NBA Championship Kevin Garnett has become a dirty, insane jackass mimicking as a canine. It's gotten to the point where everybody has forgotten how sympathetic a figure he was in Minnesota just three years ago. As soon as he came to the Celtics though he seems to have really embraced the aura of what it means to be an arrogant, pompous douchebag.
There was his unforgettable game against the Blazers where he managed to do things that will never be seen on a basketball court again. He started by making aptly named teammate, Glen "Big Baby" Davis cry during a timeout and followed that up by coming out of the timeout, crawling on all fours and barking at guard Jerryd Bayless.
He had previously started his decline into the realm of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest when in a game against Toronto he felt the need to begin clapping, pointing at Jose Calderon and probably barking in the middle of a play while guarding him the length of the floor.
KG found a way to top both of these in a matchup against the Warriors later in the season when he hit Marco Belinelli with this dirty elbow to his chest.
I only bring this up because late in the fourth quarter against the Knicks, Garnett committed a blatant tripping foul on Wilson Chandler late in the fourth quarter. The similarity between all these plays is that he wasn't whistled for a technical, flagrant or even a personal foul on any of them.
Ok NBA referees it's time to reach down in your pants and check if you're man enough to actually control a game rather than be intimidated by a lunatic that is clearly a gigantic wuss. You doubt that? Look at the tale of the tape. Garnett's targets have all been players on the smaller side of things. Belinelli, Calderon, Bayless and Chandler wouldn't stand a chance. I also doubt whether his own teammate, "Big Baby", would be able to considering that he actually started crying on the bench.
I know we aren't going to sign anybody who's crazy enough to imitate man's best friend during a game and picks on guys half his size. Congratulations, you've transformed yourself from being a player most of the NBA viewing public liked to joining the Celtic tradition and being loathed by all. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE and you proved it.
