NBA legend Kevin Garnett recently retired and was a savage on the basketball court and we discovered he's been a savage with the trash talking too.
In a recent interview from Paul Pierce a former Celtics teammate of Kevin he revealed how Garnett acted when they played against Bulls centre Joakim Noah
"He asked Noah if he could rub through his hair, like a female or something, and I know that kind of made (Noah) hot. And this was when Noah was a rookie, too. I remember Noah looked up to KG. He was like, 'Man, KG, I had your poster on my wall, I looked up to you, man.' And then (Garnett) just said something like that, and was like 'F*** you, Noah.' I was like, 'Whoa.' This kid fresh out of college, looks up to KG, just said he had his poster on the wall, and he tells him that! It crushed him. It crushed Noah."
That is just one story, and now Steven Adams is another witness of Garnetts trash talking.
"KG and Perk (Kendall Perkins), those two are ridiculous, they make you question, like, why you are playing basketball and stuff. You're like 'why am I doing this?' It's really weird, you get depressed ... (Garnett) was talking to Serge once and I was like 'Woah, that's some stuff.' I cannot repeat it."
Adams also revealed how he shut down the trash talker, "He doesn't talk to me at all (because) I played the English card, he said something and I said 'No English, mate, sorry'."
