A number of teams have complained about Boston forward Kevin Garnett's antics recently, and the league has taken note.

Garnett has been going after smaller guys lately, including Jose Calderon and Luke Ridnour, and it's beginning to hurt his reputation.

"He's nothing but an instigator," one executive said of Garnett.

KG needs to be careful...the last thing he needs is another suspension.

Man, that's just lame. In my opinion, all KG does is make the game more exciting. How? By getting people hyped up. Like he did with Jose Calderon.

Countless times I've seen KG "harass" people, and what was the result? Competition. Excitement. I can't remember a player that gave an interview saying that KG is an instigator. Why? Because KG does something that should really be appreciated, but unfortunately, it is not. He makes the game more exciting.

Let's take the Toronto game as an example. KG taunted Jose, and what was the result? Jose played harder, more competitive. After an assist, Jose taunted back. And then? KG was right there on the low block, putting moves on the defense, working for a shot.

I really think that people should quit *****ing about useless things. All I see is KG being KG. He has being doing this same thing for the past 12 years. That's who he is, that's what he does. He hypes people up.

I dont think KG goes after people but I do think he does try to intimidate. I think what KG does is good for the game. So much fun to watch. Should he be going after Luke Ridnour.....NO....but usually he is right in the face of guys his own size.

I do think the suspension was a warning to Garnett but I dont think the league has it in for him. He will be fine.

taking emotion out of the game is one of the worst things the league can do. just because some players are shorter than KG he can't talk trash? This is what makes sports entertaining, players you love and players you love to hate.

that's not true. he just wants the player to conduct themselves as professionals, which is what any commissioner wants.

do we really want a bunch of pacman jones or rasheed wallace's ruining a sport filled with great athletes because they can't keep their mouths shut or stay out of trouble?

what ever happened to the barry sanders' and clyde drexlers' of the sports world.

now everything is hip-hop, dreadlocks and look at me crap.

any reason why sports are going downhill?

and before you start with the racist crap, just remember that the example i used about barry sanders and clyde drexler happened to be about black guys too. i only point it out because i'm sure some 12 year old will get on here and start calling me hitler, so i just want to nip that in the bud before it gets started!

I like to see some class in this Celt's team.
On any team, show some respect to worthy advesaries.
Like Magic & Bird.

But also I think there is alittle exaggeration & hype here as there is some sour grapes among laker/kobe fans for having beaten them. Opponents are looking for things to complain about.
Celts should take legitimate critisim and learn & ignore the sour grapes that are exaggeration or not legitimate.

personally I dont have a problem what players listen to, how they wear their hair, or if they want attention. If I was in front of millions of people world wide I would want the attention too, imo.

He's nowhere near the level that Ron Artest is at. That guy is instigator #1 in the league. I wouldn't worry about KG. He just has to watch it as officials may be quicker to T him up now.

If they keep complaining, bring Dennis Rodman back, they will forget KG. :>)

He talks **** to smaller players cause he has no balls. I would like to see him say the same stuff to a guy like Ben Wallace. Of course he doesn't want his *** kicked.

I'm a warrior... I can relate to kevin mentality...but theres alot of times he goes over the top almost like an angry 17 year old, mouthing off and stuff.....it's patheic really....be a warrior, play with that insane intensity....but play with honor and respect at the same time......like I said kG crosses the line sometimes......personally if I was to play aganist him..... we would end up fighting gaurnteed....If I was his size I'd back him down drop step high elbow,and knock him out.....KG's got it comin alot of times, You never see it happen because people ar scared of him or just not tough enough to do anything about it.
