    Default Maybe KG Isn't a Prick After All

    LOL ... nah, I think no matter how nice anyone thought the gesture was, KG will always be a prick.

    Chris Bosh can thank Kevin Garnett for a happy homecoming.

    On Saturday, Garnett gave East coach Stan Van Gundy some subtle advice.

    "He said, ĎHey, play me the first time out each half. Itís Chrisí hometown, so give him a lot of minutes," Van Gundy said. "So I was glad we were able to do that. I thought it was great."

    "Chris played very well," Van Gundy said. "It was obvious not just with his numbers, but with the way he was playing, running up and down the court with great energy, that this day was important for him."

    Bosh finished with 23 points, the third-highest total for the East, and also had 10 rebounds and a couple of crowd-pleasing dunks.

    Although he didnít start, he played more than 29 minutes, the most of any player on either team other than LeBron James (32 minutes) and Dwyane Wade (31 minutes).

    Making the moment even bigger was the crowd of 108,713, the most ever to watch a basketball game.

    "He played extremely hard, so Iím very happy for him," Van Gundy said.

    "[Playing in front of] 108,000 people in his hometown, a double-double and the winning points, I thought it was a great day for him."

    Nice gesture...but I still dislike that C**tic. Speaking of pricks, anyone else notice how Pierce pretty much refused to pass the ball to CB last night? They were on the court together for several minutes a couple of times and that C**tic passes the ball to CB only once even though he had several opportunities.

    At least KG was cheering on CB, but you could tell there was no love lost, at least on the part of Pierce, between those two.

    Garnett didn't want to play, anyway, since he's not healthy. He's still a dick in my books. Even dicks can do nice things.

    He probably had a bum knee or something and played it off like he is a good guy.

    Maybe as KG grows older, he realises that he ain't the player he used to be and it humble's him.

    ahh who am I kidding , he is still a prick! I would still love to see Reggie Evans knock him on his ass and watch KG cower away in fear.

    I never found KG to be too bad a guy, even though I hate the team he now plays for. Maybe I'm going crazy, but I don't seem to hate him or them so much when they're not doing so well... Ah, who am I kidding, F Them All! I'll even guarantee a Raptor win in the next meeting.

    On the court the guy brings a level of intensity that's rarely seen. That doesn't mean he's a prick but he'll play and talk his way to victory. Sports are more than just a game of skill. They're physical, mental and vocal games too. The guys that bring it are the greats. Everyone else is just good or real good.

    He is a prick, but I wish Bosh would have some of his attitude.

    Haha, and +1 to this thread. I love reading all the KG bashing. How anyone can say KG is not a prick after watching that vid is beyond me.

    For me, this sorta summarizes why I can't stand KG. (Read some of the comments below the article too)

    Yeah, I noticed that even when the East team would huddle during time-outs... CB4 & PP avoided eachother and there was absolutely no high-fiving, etc. between the two even after the game.
    Everyone hates the C**tics... LA, Orlando, Atlanta etc. In fact I have hated every Boston for 20+ years! I can't wait for the next Boston-Toronto game... I hope Reggie squeezes the life outta PP.

    People hate the Celtics not because they're good but because they're egotistical, unsportsmanlike asses. As dominate as Shaq & Kobe were you never saw them pull the crap that KG does. Same goes the Duncan & the Spurs, the Pistons and Wade & Shaq. Where was all that B.S. when he was playing for the T-Wolves and it was all on him to win games in the playoffs? If he gets down on his hands and knees and attempts to humiliate a Raptors again somebody needs to hard foul his ass to the floor.

    Don't forget though; Michael Jordan was one of the biggest trash talkers ever.
    That being said, hard fouls can definitely straighten some people out a little.

    Trash talking and what KG pulls occasionally are two entirely different things. Jordan humiliated people with his play, KG tries to humiliate certain people with antics. KG is an elite douche bag... Few stack up.

    I really hope it's Bargnani that gives it to them! I wanna see him toughen up a lot more. Even Bosh...
