You see that dunk right there? That very big dunk by a pretty small guy? Do you see it? You see it. It’s right there. It’s huge. (Seriously, do you see it? I need to know because if you don’t I know a very good optometrist who can can help you out and, yeah, I do get a small referral fee for sending him patients but I’m mostly concerned about your vision.) You totally see it.

Kevin Garnett, he doesn’t see it. Has no idea what this so-called dunk is even about. Dunk? What dunk? Who dunked? Yeah, right. From the Boston Globe:

Kevin Garnett, who delivered 16 points and 8 rebounds in 37 minutes, was asked if Teague’s dunk angered the team. “I don’t even know who you are talking about. That guy’s a nobody,’’ he said.

This guy. Such a meanie. All Jeff Teague — starting point guard for a team that won more playoff games than Garnett’s Celtics last season, by the by — is trying to do is get his team fired up and Kevin Garnett has to go and act like the guy doesn’t even exist. Does Kevin Garnett have to be so Kevin Garnett all the time? Geez.

Can’t he be a little more like Ray Allen sometimes? Ray got dunked on, gave Teague some props and then used basketball to zing him right back.

“Yeah, it [ticked] me off,’’ Allen said about Teague’s taunting. “Because even if I was watching the game I would have been mad because you’re trying to show the guy [up] you dunked on. Yeah he dunked on me. I’ve been dunked on before. But it cost them a free throw [on a technical on Teague].’’ [...]

“Yeah, there was a sense of anger,’’ Allen said, “a sense of, ‘We’re going back at you guys,’ because that was uncalled for.’’

When asked if the late Teague [game-ending] airball was payback, Allen said, “Yeah, the basketball gods are out there, and they watch.’’

See? That’s how you deal with getting dunked on. You accept it then you turn things right back around by pointing out that karma got to Jeff Teague in the end. You don’t have to go and completely invalidate everything just because you’re being Professor Teammate. Ray Allen knows he got dunked on. You don’t have to act like it didn’t happen and you don’t know who did it.

Besides, that’s an old Kobe Bryant trick, denying the existence of a fellow NBA player. Totally Krossed played out. If you have to diss another player, at least come up with something new. Maybe mention how Jeff Teague has a tiny head but a giant face, or that his brother is a better player. I don’t know. There are other options out there. Think outside the box, Kevin Garnett. And maybe stop being such a Kevin Garnett all the time.

  1. KG is so old he can’t even think of anything new to say, and it’s not like KG hasn’t taunted people after a dunk (7 years ago). Pretty solid dunk for a decent player with a lot of potential.

  2. Straight up, KG is a dick

    • A player on the opposing team dunks on a respected vet and taunts him and KG is the dick.

      Naturally…

      • no, kg’s a dick because he taunts more than anyone else in the nba, yet once someone does it to him, he doesn’t even acknowledge it. also he makes dick-like comments including the one to charlie v calling him a cancer patient.

  3. KG is and always has been a low life idiot, guy has no respect so dont know why anyone shows him any. If i were to play with him with the size of a howard or bynum id be slapping his skinny as* all over the court and letting him get himself up.

  4. time to grow up Kevin…

  5. How is that not a tech for Teage while Knicks Shumpert got a tech just for looking at KG after a dunk???

  6. KG is nobody to me, btw

  7. He matched disrespect with an equal amount of disrespect, what’s the problem here?

    • No problem here. One showed his disrespect on the court, the other couldn’t so he decided to be a baby after the game.

  8. Kevin Garnett? Didn’t he retire in 2009? All I see on the court now is some old guy huffing and puffing and riding off a reputation. Maybe if he was still any good he would’ve chased Teague down and tried to make a defensive play.

  9. KG is a hall of famer, former multiple time all star, and champion. He is simply trying to defend his teammate Ray Allen in this statement which any other player would do. When Blake dunked on Perkins, Durant said it wasn’t even a dunk and that it wasn’t even a nice play either. Teammates defend teammates. And all of you would love to have an intense player like KG on your team and you know it. He’s a winner. And he is still a solid player and great defender. In fact, KG this season averages more points, rebounds, and blocks than Jeff Teague, and Garnett also has a higher field goal percentage, free throw percentage and 3-point percentage than him as well in less minutes! Not to take anything from Jeff’s nice dunk or his current play.

    By the way, I am a proud Celtics fan and Kevin Garnett fan. Just felt this comment section needed a little bias for the Celtics to even the playing field.

    • Kevin Durant also mentioned, when asked about that perkins dunk, that he might have liked it if it wasn’t against his team. He also discredited the dunk as a lay-up; not Black Griffon as a nobody.

      You footnoted your comments as being biased just like Kevin Durant did, and your Garnett didn’t and won’t. Garnett is a great player no arguing that. But act like you have been great enough for long enough to not let an emotional young player turn you into a classless bully.

  10. KG is a huge badass and awesome and someone who should have your respect – 20,000 points, 10,000 boards, 5,000 assists, 1500 blocks, 1500 steals – the only guy with those numbers. Great teammate, great competitor. Also – for those of you saying he’s not relevant, check his stats since February began. He’s averaging around 20 and 10. The guy is incredible. And – yeah- if I were he or ray or PP or any of these vets who have been doing this for that long – I’d have the same reaction. Compared to KG, Jeff Teague is a nobody. He should have stopped, gotten down and bowed to Ray Allen before he dunked the ball.

  11. And, as was said earlier – he’s doing this to back up Ray – again being a good teammate.

  12. If you are a fan or a player, you’d absolutely want him on your team.

  13. Teague was not simply trying to fire up his team. He stared at Ray Allen and screamed in his face. There is a big difference there.

  14. It just goes to show you don’t play around with the Basketball Gods. Especially when it’s Ray Allen you’re messing with, who after all played a guy named Jesus in a movie about basketball.

  15. KG will be KG. ha deal wit it
