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.
