Here is the video (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/Video-Kevin-Garnett-tops-off-his-team-8217-s-f?urn=nba-wp12436)

Classless, unnecessary move by Kevin Garnett (again).

I'm a Celtics fan. I have no problem admitting that KG needs to cut the ****. He's not even a dominant player anymore. He's trying to be a tough guy, and he crosses the line yet again.

And Garnett is probably suspended for game 2. On another note, I really am curious what's going to happen around game 20-30 for this Celtics squad. I can envision a few scenarios where they fail to make the playoffs.

Garnett is rapidly becoming one of my least favorite players, dude has been a scuz bag for a couple years.

In all seriousness though what a chippy game how does Sasha get the tech against melo earlier in the game really.....

Melo killed it though (my first round pick!)

Highly doubtful.

But personally, I want them to trade the entire team away and rebuild.

he didnt get the tech for roughing Melo..he got it because he was talking to the ref about the foul call and never stopped..the refs were jumpy anyway just to start the game...good hard fought game and KG was just mad cause Bill Walker closed out and affected his shot

Rondo is overated. The only reason why he can make so many assists is because hes played with these hall of famers for a while and know their style. Also, the big 3 are all hall of famers and they make shots because he knows their spots and where they want the ball. On a rebuilding team, he wouldnt be able to pass as well and his assists would be way down. hes overated, a guard that cant even shoot.

I don't blame Garnette. That kid that contested his shot was an SOB, that shot was suppose to go in and I totally understand KG's frustration...that is just utter BS. Walker didn't contest the shot his hand slapped him in his face and eyes that is why he missed. Rondo put up such effort it's ridiculous that they won. Knicks played terrible apart from Melo's lucky shots it should have been a Celtic win.

Wow, did you not see Rondo today? If his jumper is real, if his FT % improved, I don't see how you can say he's overrated. He has incredible vision, but clearly that means nothing to you. Just points, right? F**king idiot.

Also, DID YOU SEE THE KNICKS OFFENSE? DID YOU SEE THE KNICKS HAVE THE WORST OFFENSIVE FLOW EVER? MELO = KNICKS. As a Bulls fan, I was so happy to watch that game and to see just how incompetent the Knicks are as a team (outside of Melo, Stat, and Tyson)... the rest of the team is straight garbage and Shumpert going down doesn't help at all.

Jury is still out on that..a lot could have changed in this extended off-season..he hit some shot today and regardless he knows how to get to the rim and finish..also only missed 3 FTs, that can be big for him..and i think his assist comes from knowing the offense..and you cant fault him because he knows how to get scorers the ball where they like it cause a lot of guards cant do it

d*** Toney Douglas cant get any love..he scored and played good defense...and dont go to Rondo scoring 31 as TD not playing good D because a lot of his points came off fast breaks and FTs...and it was a team game throughout the first half in the second half the wheels just fell off and Melo picked us up

i hate the celtics more than the next guy, but he's honestly the only guy i like, aside from allen, on that team. i don't think he's underrated at all. sure, he's got 3 hall of famers with him so it's easier for him, but put a guy like toney douglas with him, and i don't think it'd be the same result. rondo is a past first PG and douglas isn't.

wow, you are really giving TD love. HE DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THE FLOW OF THE GAME. I didn't blame Rondo scoring 31 on TD. Rondo scoring 31 can be attributed to his development of a jumper. BUT TD IS NOT A PG, HE'S A BACKUP guard (undersized for 2, not good enough at passing for 1).... To call him a legitimate starter is a JOKE. I don't think you understand the JOB OF A POINT GUARD. DISTRIBUTE and CONTROL FLOW OF GAME, and the knicks had neither the ENTIRE GAME. The Knicks have two of the best 1-on-1 players in the league.

I fully expect NYK to get eliminated 1st or 2nd round. WHY DOES NO ONE SEE THAT DANTONI'S SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK? No defense, All offense without a PG just doesn't work. The Knicks are betting their entire season on Baron Davis. Hilarious.

KG is just too high on himself, the fact that he makes 20+mil a year is just astounding. he has a terrible demeanor and is constantly provoking fights. the celts are still a good team, allen is still allen, kg is still decent, i imagine pierce should still be an allstar and rondo looks fantastic. they are a center away from being a contender once more. toney is a player that people hate on, but i am personally thrilled that Baron can't come back for a few weeks so we can truly see what we have with toney. his passing will get better as he learns this offense and his defense is already solid (3 steals). this is a new team that hasn't had time to gel. hopefully this season will play out more like a long training camp. all we need to do is make the playoffs and then it's anyone's game. give a team a chance, this was there third game together and they played a team that has been together 4 years and won a championship. celts had no excuse to lose this game and no losing pierce is not an excuse. they still started 3 all stars.

The thread's title is correct. However, hardly anyone is mentioning how Bill Walker is walking up to KG and provoking him. Yes, KG shouldn't have done it but Walker also shouldn't have stepped up to him like that.

This KG crying is starting to get old. There are current NBA players that are worse trash talkers (KG is just more expressive of it), and no one EVER was a bigger trash talker than Larry Bird.

KG is a punk, but his reputration is hurting him here. We didn't even see what Walker did. Why was Walker up in KG's grill? KG's a punk and obviously overreacted, but it's not like he just lunged at the guy for no reason. If you want to prove KG is a punk, there are a million examples you could use over this.

It's also worth pointing out that Walker and KG had a fight in training camp during Walker's rookie season and Walker also had a fight w/ Lebron in that preseason. So it's not like he's a victim. I bet he had a large part in the fight, which the video in the original post doesn't catch.

Walker is lucky he's not in the D-league. He should make the most of his time by actually trying to contribute to his team rather than pick fights with guys who are 15x better than he'll ever be. Maybe he's still bitter at the C's for trading him and not giving him any playing time when he was here.

KG was wrong and should have had that fire in him during the actual game, rather than afterward. He played harder in the two preseason games than this one.

Honestly, trash talk is part of the game. Garnett does it as much as anyone through the course of a game...But when someone does it to him, he somehow has the right to lay his hands on him?

Give me a break. He's a big ****ing baby. I've tolerated it as 'passion' for a while, but he's a complete hypocrite. He was butthurt over a loss, and he couldn't take it like a man.

The Celtics better hope Pierce plays on Tuesday, because I'm not convinced KG will be available at that time. It would still be a great game regardless because Rondo proved today that when needed, he can score and set people up in the same breath as opposed to just doing one per game. But KG should know better, period. Enough is enough at some point......

When Garnett swiped at him, Walker put his hands up and started to back away...then other people came over and got in front of him and he acted like he was going to go at KG.

Basketball players in general need to lose the tough guy routine.

Here is the video (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/Video-Kevin-Garnett-tops-off-his-team-8217-s-f?urn=nba-wp12436)

Classless, unnecessary move by Kevin Garnett (again).

I'm a Celtics fan. I have no problem admitting that KG needs to cut the ****. He's not even a dominant player anymore. He's trying to be a tough guy, and he crosses the line yet again.

Thats who he is. He isnt gonna change at this point in his career.

i was at the game, the part they dont show is right when kg missed it walker got right into his face, then he walked away then garnett did something..and kg is a scrub are u serious..the knicks whole franchise is built around scrubs...even when you get a non scrub billups on your team you let him go and replace him with two scrubs with baron and bibby, plzz.... People just dont like garnett plays with emotion

Dick move by KG, but I dont understand why everybody is saying that the Celtics are done. Even though they lost, they had 3 players who had over 20 points. Rondo showed incredible improvement on his jumper and free throws. Brandon Bass looked way better than Davis and the Celtics broke 100 points and lost by a bucket without their top scorer. Theres no reason that the celtics cannot have a great year.

Rondo is overated. The only reason why he can make so many assists is because hes played with these hall of famers for a while and know their style. Also, the big 3 are all hall of famers and they make shots because he knows their spots and where they want the ball. On a rebuilding team, he wouldnt be able to pass as well and his assists would be way down. hes overated, a guard that cant even shoot.

it was not a mistake. i don't even care what else you had to say cause i stopped right after i read this. how the hell was choking another player a mistake? to have to do something like that to that extent means he had an intention of doing so in the first place when walker apparently said something. whether he said something or not, you don't ****ing choke someone. that's just low and classless.

KG's a sore loser... Him and Pierce are extremely arrogant. They expect to beat the Knicks every time so now that he took the L he loses his cool and strikes B. Walker. Nice move from a guy that talks as much trash as anybody in the league if not the most. He's been called a fake tough guy I dont remember which player called him that, but I bet he wouldn't have tried that with STAT. I'd also put my money on B. Walker if it would have turned into a fight.

This thread is why respect guys like Corey, Hawkeye, ManRam, tredigs etc. Guys who though they are homers to an extent can be critical of their own players and hold nothing back. IMO that's a real sports fan not those who ride their players **** and act like they can do no wrong.

Back on topic KG is a douche but that's what makes him who he is, does he cross the line at times sure but that's what makes him go. Not defending the action by no means but I think if KG were to stop being who he is because he isn't as great a player anymore it would take away from his game. He's at his best when he gets into other players' head.

KG without a doubt has done some things over the course of his career that are undeniably embarrassing, but the NBA is full of thugs so if your a fan of the NBA you better get used to it because ITS PART OF TODAYS GAME.

But how can people say this was 100% KG's fault?

#1 KG didn't CHOKE Bill Walker, if you can't see that from the video then there is not hope for you.

#2 KG plays with a ton of emotion and sometimes he gets out of line, but would you honestly rather have a player that rolls over every time someone gets in his face or someone who stands up and takes no bulls@%t? I'll take the ladder.

#3 What you don't see in the video is the fact that KG was provoked by Bill Walker and has had a history with him, including a fight during Walkers rookie season with the C's. This didn't just happen out of no where. KG has notoriously been hard on younger players and has taken a hard stance against 'earning respect' in this league. If Bill Walker wants some respect he needs to start playing better on the court, nuff said.


KG isn't nearly the player he used to be back in Minny or even his first few years in Boston, but he's still better than nearly 75% of the players in this league, so if he's scoring 20+ppg and 12reb like in his prime are we even talking about this today?

No, people are just looking for a reason to bash KG while his career winds down and his numbers continue to slip.

This is a typical fanboy reaction.

I find it hard to disagree with you, but at what do you say to yourself enough is enough already? He needs to be the bigger man for once and just let it go, but I won't deny that Bill Walker instigated KG from the get-go. Walker seems to think he's bigger than what he is. It's comical actually.

One more thing, your reaction is a "typical fanboy reaction". Youre blindly defending someone from your team who did something clearly wrong because youre a homer.

Its not very difficult for you to admit he did something wrong, there isnt any other way to look at it.

Im not bashing KG's ability to play the game of basketball, just his stupid childish actions.

The game was over, he was sour because he lost and missed what would have been the tying shot, so he lashed out inappropriately like a little kid. So, "if you cant see that from the video, there is not hope for you"

Garnett talks trash as much as anyone in the league. The second a (smaller) player says something back to him, he throws his hand at someone's throat.

Unacceptable.

Straight from the NBA rules:

There is absolutely no justification for fighting in an NBA game. The fact that you may feel provoked by another player is not an acceptable excuse. If a player takes it upon himself to retaliate, he can expect to be subject to appropriate penalties.

Obviously you didn't read my post. I admitted he was wrong and on top of that has done numerous embarrassing things over the course of his career. While KG had his part to blame in this altercation, his isn't 100% to blame like people are saying here. Bill Walker deserves just as much, if not MORE blame than KG.



The game was over, he was sour because he lost and missed what would have been the tying shot, so he lashed out inappropriately like a little kid. So, "if you cant see that from the video, there is not hope for you"

This comment is laughable. So your telling me from this 'video' you can tell he was butthurt by losing the game and missing the shot and that's the reason he lashed out? If you saw what led up to this play you would have CLEARLY seen that Walker and KG were already heated before this play. Not to mention that BW managed to claw KG's face while trying to disrupt his shot (not saying this is wrong, because it happens in the NBA) but if you think him going after BW had ANYTHING to do with the loss your sadly mistaken. KG's beef yesterday started and ended with Bill Walker, it had nothing to do with the outcome of the game.

because of there soft minds and they cant get over KGs throat...all i see on ESPN and PSD is about the KG grabbing the throat instead of a fantastic first game....it happened so what...talk about the game and make the kg "incident" a footnote of the game instead of the whole story...because people are soft they cant get over it and rather talk about KG than the actual game...people need to gain tougher skin and get over it

People don't get physical because they aren't dumb, and dont want to get suspended.

Unfortunately for the Celtics, Kevin Garnett is a dumbass, and he doesn't respect the rules enough to realize that his actions have repercussions.

KG is not even among the most hated players ever and he isn't even a dirty player. Laimbeer literally wanted to hurt his opponents KG just gets in their head and sometimes loses his tempter. KG is NO where near Laimbeer in terms of dirty play. Bruce Bowen, Dennis Rodman hell even Karl Malone was dirtier than KG. Being a trash talker and a dirty player is two totally different things. KG plays within the rules of the game more so than those other players.

It usually takes more than a couple of days for the NBA to decide the suspension length then you add in the fact that KG may appeal too.

I was at that game & it was epic, we ended up losing the series though. After the game, he was being interviewed by a reporter & said this (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playoffs2004/news/story?id=1804051) stupid ****.


"This is it," he responded. "It's for all the marbles. I'm sitting in the house loading up the pump, I'm loading up the Uzis, I've got a couple of M-16s, couple of nines, couple of joints with some silencers on them, couple of grenades, got a missile launcher. I'm ready for war."

KG is a punk, a sore loser, a brat, an insane person, etc.... but there are sooooooooooooo many better examples than this. Shoving someone that's in your grill talking **** really isn't that big of a deal. Going after the neck was the problem here. but it's not like he "choked" anyone.

One a poll (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1166789/index.htm) of 179 of the players in the league KG wasn't even considered among the top 5 dirtiest players in the game. How can he be the dirtiest of all time? :confused:

Don't ever mistake being a trash talker for a dirty player. Reggie Miller, Larry Bird and Magic are all considered some of the biggest trash talkers to ever play the game. That didn't make them dirty players. When 173 players were asked who was the biggest trash talker (http://www.csnne.com/pages/landing?KG-voted-NBAs-top-trash-talker=1&blockID=116492&feedID=3352) KG came out on top with a landslide win in that regard.

i know what the rules are .... i never said KG shouldnt get suspended..but people in general have become soft

because of there soft minds and they cant get over KGs throat...all i see on ESPN and PSD is about the KG grabbing the throat instead of a fantastic first game....it happened so what...talk about the game and make the kg "incident" a footnote of the game instead of the whole story...because people are soft they cant get over it and rather talk about KG than the actual game...people need to gain tougher skin and get over it

people here are soft now because the new NBA has been soft for over 10 years now...people need to get tough...theres an art to trash talk...and part of the art is being able to back that up

Man your logic would fly if this was the WWE but it isn't. No one should turn anything to fighting. Now if it was the other way around you same guys defending KG would be against the player who attacked him for trash talking.

Yu know how foolish it is to defend a man who resorted to violence when he lost a game and couldn't control his temper. Kevin Garnnet would be the FIRST person to admit that it was wrong of him to get physical in any way. You guys really amaze me. I defend KGs passion for the game because I truly believe it makes him a better player but the mere fact that you're defending that he got physical plain not smart.

LoL @ people defending KG. it was xmas day. 1st game of the season. To make it worse it was after the game ended LoL! His actions were nothing more than a product of a sore loser. He could atleast wait until the 2nd game of the season to start shoving.

I think the fact that the celtics have won the last 8 against NY made him react that way aswell. He knows the tides are turning and NY wont be pushed over anymore.

5 Game suspension should be handed here. The fact that it was the 1st game since the lockout, and so this sore loser can get the point he doesn't own the court.

So your telling me that the pushing and shoving that went on between the two is something new that doesn't happen in every NBA game?

I'm calling you out on that bulls**t comment, that's just stupid to say.

I'm not condoning his actions just simply pointing out the fact that it happens in nearly every NBA game and people are just so butthurt over it because its KG and he's a notorious 'trash talker'

Lay off the dude, KG plays EVERY game with more intensity and passion than most people will ever use in their entire existence as a human.

And don't even think about bringing up the fact that he "choked" Bill Walker, because if his intentions were to choke him he would have done it. It was simply pushing and shoving that ended up with his hand on his throat for a SPLIT SECOND while others were trying to intervene to break up the scuffle. You wanna see real choking go watch some domestic violence on youtube and tell me its the same thing.

Have I said ANYTHING about choking? What are you talking about? I never said KG choked him or tried to choke him. I said I believe KG is as great as he is largely due to the fact that he's such an intense player. But being intense doesn't mean you have to be a sore loser and get physical.

This is pattern for KG and Stern has to finally acknowledge it and deter him with a healthy suspension.

Putting your hands around another player's neck during the course of a game is unacceptable, but to do it after the game is over is just childish and completely unacceptable.

KG is a old man and he needs to start acting like one.

I never said you mentioned choking, but numerous posters have so I said for the sake of this argument don't even bother bringing it up because the point is moot.

In a physical game where players are constantly running into each other, swatting at each others hands, trying to disrupt each others fluidity within the game. Isn't it to be expected that there is going to be some kind of emotion whether it be before or after the whistle?

Maybe my term of being "physical" are different than yours and that's fine, but where I draw the line is when someone closes a fist and proceeds to swing at someone. What happened yesterday was tempers flaring after an emotional game. It's a joke that people have even taken this incident and turned it into something so big that people can't help but talk about it.

I'm sure Walker got fired up after KG missed and talked some trash, but that doesnt mean it should get physical. From what I've heard KG talks more trash than most. At least to me this seemed like if you cant take it, dont dish it out. That mixed with an emotional KG who was pissed he missed.

Dude give up already you're embarrassing your entire fan base. You are trying to justify KGs actions by saying that happens every game when it DOES NOT. That was a malicious shove against the flow of the game matter of a fact it was AFTER the game. So your ludicrous point of it happening every game is even more baseless. It's a physical sport not a martial art. You don't malicious shove another player in his throat without having repercussions.

My definition of physical in a sport is doing what you have to do within the rules of the game to give your team the best chance at winning. So when a player is going for an easy layup and he gets held (fouled) so that he isn't able to convert the easy two but rather take his chances at the line that's fine. You are given 6 fouls for a reason. However when a player takes a cheap shot at another after not being able to convert its just that a cheap shot and it has no place in the sport.

If you're going to defend that then there is no helping you. You're gone too far. Like I said before KG would be the FIRST person to say that what he did was wrong you however try to defend him to a fault.

You are trying to justify KGs actions by saying that happens every game when it DOES NOT.

Find me an NBA game where there isn't some form of pushing and shoving at some point, please seriously do me a favor. :facepalm:


It's a physical sport not a martial art.

Yes, I'm glad we can agree on something.


You don't malicious shove another player in his throat without having repercussions.

What did I tell you about the throat comments? His hand only reached his throat because people were trying to break up the scuffle. His intentions were never to choke the man, he was trying to push him in retaliation for clawing his face during the final shot.


However when a player takes a cheap shot at another after not being able to convert its just that a cheap shot and it has no place in the sport.

KG didn't retaliate because of the missed shot. He retaliated because of the claw to the face along with the trash talking going on by Bill Walker after the whistle blew.


If you're going to defend that then there is no helping you. You're gone too far.

I'll defend KG until I die, not because I'm a Celtics fan but because I'm a KG fan. I've loved him since he came into the league with the T'Wolves and I just wished more NBA players could play with the passion and drive that KG has. The NBA would be a better sport if more players were like KG.


Like I said before KG would be the FIRST person to say that what he did was wrong you however try to defend him to a fault.

Are you sure? Last I check this isn't KG's first time with a incident like this. I don't think I've ever heard him apologize for any of them. Why? Because its all within the passion he has for the game. He leave's it all on the floor, every. single. game.

I disagree with a whole lot of that. I'm not sure if you think the Knicks got away with a lot in terms of calls, but I think Boston gets a lot of non calls against them. Garnett does moving picks to get Allen open all game, its so unbelievably noticeable how many illegal picks Garnett sets every game but I digress I'm sure the Knicks got some good calls also. Paul Pierce playing would have helped a lot and could have changed the outcome. However, if PP plays, does Rondo still have the game he had? I dont know, maybe Pierces numbers cut into Rondo's numbers and they still lose, idk though lol. I agree that KG is a punk, its a shame because he used to be one of my favorite players.

I did not say that Crawford screwed the Celtics, i said he is a bad official. Regaurdless of the outcome, Crawford made himself a part of the end result as usual. I would have said the same if it was the other way. I am not certian why you are getting so defensive over any of my comments.

And while I cannot see the future, a 2 point road loss with some blown calls down the stretch tells me that the outcome would have been different if they PP on the floor. That one is boder line common sense.

Not arguing against you, but do you have his Per 36 numbers from last year compared to his time in Minny?

I'd be interested to see what his numbers look like in comparison.

I always assumed his offensive numbers dipped more because of the amount of shots he was getting playing with Ray and Paul. He still shoots a good % from the field, although he has lost nearly all of his post game.

I took two things from that game, 1. If both teams are healthy it would be one hell of a fun playoff series again. 2. If the knicks can get the rest of the team to show the same effort on D that Chandler shows, they can be a legit danger in the post season. If not like Boston they're looking at two rounds in the post season at best.

Walker & KG shake hands after flare-up

By Ian Begley
Bill Walker approached Kevin Garnett as the Celtics' big man was boarding a team bus to leave Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

No, he wasn't looking for retaliation or Round 2 with Garnett.

He just wanted to shake hands.

"When I was leaving the arena I talked to him," Walker said on Monday. "It's no hard feelings or nothing like that. We're both competitors and wanted to win. Emotions run high when you're playing at that type of level."

About an hour earlier, Garnett had his hand around Walker's throat after the Celtics' forward missed a potential game-tying shot at the buzzer. The two had to be separated by coaches and players at the end of the Knicks' 106-104 win over the Celtics.

"Heat of the moment," Walker said on Monday. "I just went and contested the shot. We got wrapped up, tangled up and, you know, the rest happened."

Walker's skirmish with Garnett came at the tail end of a physical Christmas Day game between the Celtics and the Knicks.

There were six technical fouls issued. Ray Allen and Toney Douglas were whistled for offsetting technicals after they became entangled in the second quarter. Carmelo Anthony drilled Rajon Rondo with an elbow, trying to clear the Celtics point guard from his personal space.

The physical play prompted Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni to claim that Celtics-Knicks is "going to be a rivalry now."

Walker and Garnett got into it after Walker contested Garnett's jumper from the right wing at the buzzer. After Garnett's shot caromed off the rim, Walker appeared to step toward Garnett and say something to the Celtic forward.

"I can't get into that," Walker said when asked what was said between he and Garnett. "We were in the heat of the game. It was a tough game throughout, it was a dog fight. Nobody wanted to lose. It just came to a head right there and it's over."

As Walker was leaving the Garden, he saw Garnett heading toward the Celtics' bus.

He approached Garnett to say that he had no hard feelings.

"We shook hands, I talked to him ... I chopped it up with him. I still respect those guys," said Walker, who played a little over one season with Garnett in Boston.

Walker later added, "I have a respect for KG."

The Celtics swept the Knicks last season in the first round of the playoffs. One reason Boston was able to dominate New York so soundly last April was the Celtics' play nature, specifically around the basket.

After what transpired on the Madison Square Garden floor on Sunday, Walker believes things will be different this year.

"They were the better team [last year]," Walker said. "This year we feel a little bit more confident. We learned some things from that series and we just wanted to play hard [on Sunday], play harder than they did. That's what they did to us last year."

I always liked KGs game, but never really understood why he needed to cross the line with regard to letting emotion overcome him.

This was definitely the case regarding the Knicks-Celtics game - he shot, he missed, they lost, he got pissed. Sure, Walker may have said something, but KG Always says something win, lose, or draw. -shrug-

Bynum floored Barea and got 5 game suspension.

If Garnett doesnt get at least 4 games for attacking Billy Walker after the game on a national holiday with one of their highest viewer ratings in recent history I will be truly shocked.

Anything can happen With Stern and Stu Jackson but I hope that they do the right thing and punish him severly for giving the NBA another black eye for being a ghetto classless thug.

Not arguing against you, but do you have his Per 36 numbers from last year compared to his time in Minny?

I'd be interested to see what his numbers look like in comparison.

I always assumed his offensive numbers dipped more because of the amount of shots he was getting playing with Ray and Paul. He still shoots a good % from the field, although he has lost nearly all of his post game.

Your wish is my command (http://awesomescreenshot.com/091qtuvb6)

They can't really be equated the same though. KG's minutes per game has dropped by 10 since his peak years, and his usage has dropped by like 6%.

I dont even have that much a problem with him not getting suspended. What I do have a problem with is the soft technicals on Amare and Pavolic, but this gets nothing. Just no consistency. If this isnt a suspension, then thats fine, but then the NBA has to follow that going forward rest of the season.

1. No one in this forum is talking about football.
2. When is it normal to make a motion after someone's neck as if you're going to choke them?

If you think there is nothing wrong with that picture you need to re-evaluate yourself. The 5 game bans seem to be a bit harsh; I would have def liked the league to acknowledge that his actions were in fact wrong by either fining him or handing him a one game suspension. Remember there were people probably watching this game with their families and children watching. As adults we can try to rationalize KG's actions by either villifying him or just viewing his actions as acts of fustration but minors may have a difficult time understanding that. The fine should have came automatically just so that the league can be somewhat consistent with their penalties. So Stan Van Gundy and Mark Cuban can be fined 100,000 just for opening their mouths and expressing their freedom of speech, yet they allow this type of thuggery by K.G. to just happen? So what's going to happen next? Obviously he is going to continue acting out.

Kevin Garnett will not be suspended for shoving the face of Bill Walker after Sunday's game.
We didn't think a suspension was coming, as Garnett didn't throw an actual punch. Keep him in your lineup.

NBA can't afford to have KG and possibly Paul Pierce out for Miami's home opener tomorrow. They need to promote that game in this early stage of the season.

A player blatantly clotheslining another during the course of a game and one player pushing back another during a skirmish where they are face to face are completely different. I don't agree with what KG did but lets not put this incident in the Bynum-Barea category.

just more proof that the NBA is fixed. if it was some scrub he woulda been fined and suspended.

I know people might say I am biased because I am a Knicks fan but I would say the same thing in any scenario with any player on any team. How does this guy NOT get at least a 1 game suspension for that. I understand that trash talk and chippiness occur every single game but KG straight up put his hands right on Walker's neck and tried to choke/mush him. I would say that's a tad over the line.

I think you missed the correlation here:

Bynum-Barea was a 5 game suspension. Game was already over. Playoff game with a lot of viewership. NBA took a stand and gave him a hefty fine.

Garnett-Walker - Opening game on Christmas. I read christmas day had the highest ratings in a long time. Game was already over and Garnett went for Walkers throat.

Sprewell - Carlisimo - He choked his coach and got suspended an excessive amount of games.

Brawl in the Palace - The players went after fans in the stands and got excessive fines.

How does Garnett get nothing for this. Its all the same thing, blackmarks for the league on nationally televised games. There was a prerequisite already in Sprewell - Carlisimo. Dont really understand the no fine here.

I am glad KG did not get suspended because it is bad for the viewers. I never want to see a player get suspended because players like KG have a great entertainment value. With that being said, Kevin Garnetts actions set the standard of what it take to be suspended. There will likely not be any suspensions this year unless someone pulls a Bynum.

Thats the problem...

That will not be the case.

KG is not suspended b/c the league wants Boston to be competitive tonight in their national tv broadcast vs the HEAT...

not b/c his actions were okay

The only thing worst then that is if they give him the fine after the Heat game just so they can get their ratings. That would probably piss me off more to be honest.

People keep saying oh if Paul Pierce played this and that. He didn't so let's not speculate. Knicks were also missing Baron Davis, but no one is crying about it. Paul Pierce is a better player than Baron Davis, but I think Baron Davis is just as valuable to his team as Pierce is because of the Knicks lack of a good PG.

So when does his suspension get handed down? I have this feeling KG won't be punished fittingly.

This is pattern for KG and Stern has to finally acknowledge it and deter him with a healthy suspension.

Putting your hands around another player's neck during the course of a game is unacceptable, but to do it after the game is over is just childish and completely unacceptable.

KG is a old man and he needs to start acting like one.
This is the first time I've quoted myself (and hopefully the last) but ... called it!
