Every player in the NBA talks trash. When he makes a great play he’ll talk some junk, and when the player he’s been guarding all game messes up he’ll take a few jabs. However, the language the players use is typically pretty ‘safe for work’ because at any given time the camera’s pinned on these NBA stars and they don’t want to get caught saying something embarrassing that’ll end up on the Internet for the entire world to see. Kevin Garnett did not know the camera was on him…He was also wearing a blazer and not playing in the game because he’s been injured for quite some time:
This video comes from last Saturday when the Minnesota Timberwolves took on the New Orleans Pelicans, a closely contested game that the Wolves ended up winning 112-110. The play in question was just after Pelicans guard Eric Gordon pulled up for a jumper and missed, and at that moment KG had no idea that someone’s cellphone camera was rolling right behind him.
That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett would’ve used any different language if he knew the camera was on, he’s a notorious trash talker. In fact, he’s one of the most polarizing figures in the NBA because he’s spend his entire career talking shit. That said, my own personal hunch is that he might’ve chosen his words differently if he knew the camera was rolling…What do you bros think? Answers in the Facebook comments or comments down below.
