Whistle blew. KG shoved Dwight a tiny bit. Dwight shoved KG back harder. KG threw the ball, semi-headbutted Dwight in the eyebrow area, and it was broken up.

REally? So you go head butting ppl on the street? KG knew ref was right there. What he didn't do was expect Dwight to retaliate(granted open hand slap at neck).

Then KG goes mental patient like he soooo wanted to get at dwight.

KG has ALWAYS been like this.

Go back and see where my boy chuck hayes punked him a few years back.

it was more of him just getting face to face and making light contact than an actual big headbutt. everyone knows a real fight won't happen. i still say he's more talk than anything.

I have seen people get headbutted and bust their whole face wide open, it also leaves you extremely vulnerable to a counter shot, its about as intimate as it gets in a fight, compared to a punch and run or blindside.

He hit Dwight with pretty good force using his forehead, that could have easily busted Dwights nose wide open if he connected properly.

Bro, if you're trying to initiate something you don't just walk up to headbutt someone.

He thought he was going to punk dwight.

And what exactly do you expect him to do? Go Willis Reed on Dwight and the Rockets? KG knowing he can't get into a full fledged brawl doesn't mean he wouldn't if he could. This is today's NBA for you - any more than what happened here and KG is probably coughing up 50K at least. That doesn't make him a *****.

Why wouldn't you walk up and headbutt someone? You can do a ton of damage with a headbutt, especially becuase there is rarely time to protect your face compared to a guy squaring up and throwing punches that you can see coming from a mile away. What would make him a tough guy if he shoved him instead? When you headbutt someone in the face that tells me you are ready to throw down more than a shove.

Yeah i'm sure a headbutt would be effective when from close range and intended to do damage.

Kg's headbutt was him trying to punk dwight. Much different.

You forgot the part where Durant was in street clothes. Dwight woulda been ejected, fined and possibly suspended for going after an injured MVP, not to mention getting attacked by the media relentlessly. Never seen him get in Dwight's face in an actual game. They have a game this week; we'll see if he's still a tough guy.

Actually i think im the only laker fan that still wants dwight back. Yeah personality wise he doesnt have the killer instinct like great bigs like shaq, hakeem, etc. Have but for me he is still the best C in the league. He was during his orlando years, with the lakers and now with the rockets. And i would take him back anyday. Dwight > hill, davis, boozer combined!people just started hating him so much for leaving orlando. Well who could blame him? He thought LA was the team for him.

Though i would still like to see him and kg fight. Kg wins

What would make him a tough guy if he shoved him instead? When you headbutt someone in the face that tells me you are ready to throw down more than a shove.

Lol I'm fairly young but I've spent many hours in a bar.

One of the craziest things I seen was a huge muscle dummy weighing over 250 lbs walk up to another fella probably 75 lbs lighter than he was and head butt him. The big dude who initiated everything dropped like a fly. Just goes to show using your head as a weapon is definitely not a smart thing to do.

The small guy did get his end of the stick but walked away atleast.

Anyway...KG barks pretty damn loud for a chihuahua.

Tim Duncan destroys KG and it's not even funny.
"KG has made a career of trying to punk Duncan, baiting him and slapping him and whispering really weird smack into his ear. They talk about how funny this is, because the worst thing you can do as an opponent is piss off Duncan. Then, as Malik Rose says, "he f------ destroys you." "

"Duncan and Garnett have met only two times in the postseason: 1999 and 2001, when the Spurs rolled over the Minnesota Timberwolves in a couple of 3-1 first-round series. "

Kinda one sided when Duncan ****ing destroys you.

Duncan is anything from soft. Get your facts straight.

I mean if you're going to try to call out KG for that then you have to point out that Howard's "swing" happened with the ref in between them and 2 other players right there that immediately broke it up. Have to be fair to both sides.

I don't think either player is "soft". I think they're both 7 ft, or around there, grown men athletes. They can handle themselves. Neither wants to get in a fight/brawl, get ejected, suspended, and fined but neither wants to walk away and look soft. That's why you get these half fights/attempts at intimidation.

You've probably never seen this through your eyes because you wouldn't know until you're at that position. If I saw you behind an alley with no consequences, you wouldn't be able to walk out.

Problem with him getting into it with "old school" guys like Laimbeer, is those guys don't exist in the NBA anymore...well, I guess their is KG who plays with that kind of attitude, but he's just dismissed as a little punk.

Who's he hit though? For all this tough posturing I don't think I've ever seen the guy actually throw a punch at anyone.

Just a bunch of nothing really, well dirty elbows and the occasional shoulder. You used to actually have to fight a guy every now and then and I don't think he ever really has.

For all the KG this and KG that talk about being tough he hasn't really shown it imo

If he was tough guy like he thinks he could have got it on right then and there. He had a shot and cheesed up imo.

gotta love that 90's grit in this era of teddy bears, flopping, double t's, and soft fouls.

:clap:

Except now its dismissed as KG being a punk, and all bark no bite!

He just literally head butted a guy on the court, and you got people in here saying "oh, it was only Dwight, he's just a 7 foot 275 pound all muscle woosy!"

should have been no ejection IMO, there was not a whole lot there. Just because guys push and shove a bit should not warrant ejections. A double technical should have been called and play on, I hate it when the refs think they have to hover over everything and every little shove or push is called flagrant or ejections are made.


If somebody throws a punch/elbow, kicks another player, bites another player or tackles somebody, or really anything else that would lead to an actual fight, that is when guys should get ejected. I do not believe that was much of a "head-butt", but rather KG getting nose to nose to Howard after Howard kind of pushed KG with his forearm before they shoved each other. Again, I hate that the league blows these things up too much. Just separate them and give them both T's and move on.

Who's he hit though? For all this tough posturing I don't think I've ever seen the guy actually throw a punch at anyone.

Just a bunch of nothing really, well dirty elbows and the occasional shoulder. You used to actually have to fight a guy every now and then and I don't think he ever really has.

For all the KG this and KG that talk about being tough he hasn't really shown it imo

How many NBA players have you seen throw a punch?

Regardless, here's two instances where KG has punched a player

:laugh: He's supposed to head butt him and then start throwing punches. The head butt was a challenge to Dwight, that Dwight didnt accept, if Dwight did, punches would have been thrown.

U mean the part afterwards where KG has to be held back for about 10 seconds before he throws his hands in the air? No, I don't think he should have been thrown out, sorry. Again if he actually did something that could injure Howard or another player he should get ejected, but since none of that occurred, no.

Look maybe its just me and I guess it also depends on what he was saying. But I have always been of the mindset that this is already a sport where guys are chest to chest/back to chest down low fighting for positioning and breathing on each other. Sometimes arms get tangled and guys get knocked over, and so a push or a shove should not be perceived as a big deal IMO. I'm not saying it should battle royal out there, I just think there is a gray area is all.

I'm 6' 2'' and a very muscular guy. A little bit overweight but I'm way bigger than most guys. My one punch could **** you up. I pretty much just act like dwight when they try to step up. A little dumb founded and laughing at them. Like really, you can't do shi..t if we really throw down. You've probably never seen this through your eyes because you wouldn't know until you're at that position. If I saw you behind an alley with no consequences, you wouldn't be able to walk out. That's pretty much Dwight's thought process. Anything but soft.

Wait what? I didn't call Dwight soft. Did you read my post at all? I said neither is soft. It's the NBA, they only do as much as to not get ejected, suspended, or fined majorly. That's why we get little headbutts and slaps. I don't believe KG was ejected at first. They reviewed it and decided he got 2 separate technical fouls. And you can stop with your stupid machoness. Your on the Internet, nobody gives a ****. You have no clue who I am and I'm not insecure enough to brag about it

I guess neither of you will mention when that happened. 3rd quarter of Game 6 of the 2nd round of the playoffs. That series went 7 and Peeler was suspended 2 games, watching while KG went to the Conference Finals. KG is such a ***** though and Peeler is about as smart as you.

Pretty much this. I'm not going to waste my breath calling anyone "soft." I don't watch basketball for the fights, I watch it for the basketball. I do think KG overreacted a bit in headbutting Dwight and throwing the ball at him after a pretty harmless shove, but in the end, I don't really give two ****s either way. The referees response to the situation was appropriate and the Rockets won the game, so I'm happy. Let's move on to some actual basketball discussion.

have you fought much? It's a stupid move, unless you have zip choice.


I mean, a head butt works, but better be ready to be disoriented for 10-15 seconds. Not worth is, even if you know how to deliver it.

I have been in a few fights never used a headbutt or had it used against me but I have seen a friend get his whole face busted open with one. What is it a stupid move? It leaves you vulnernable to a counter but its tough to see coming and can do a TON of damage if you use it properly. If you deliver a forehead to a nose why would you be disoriented? Its no different than breaking your hand by punching someone in the wrong part of their face. Obivously, you need to know how to do it properly, but from what I have heard its simlar to a punch in that, if you land it properly you barely feel it, if you deliver to the wrong spot (forehead to forehead) you could be in a world of pain yourself (like breaking your hand on someones face).

That's just it. Most people have zero clue how to headbutt, therefore it's typically a stupid move. Most that use it in fact, are doing so because their emotions got the best of them, which is never a good thing.

Do you feel like getting personal makes you an internet tough guy or something? I am almost fifty, I very clearly remember exactly what went on.

KG shouldn't totally fight him, and he shouldn't run around acting like he is some type of enforcer or fighter since either. If you're a tough guy and that happens to you you do something, unless you really aren't a tough guy after all.

You forgot the part where Durant was in street clothes. Dwight woulda been ejected, fined and possibly suspended for going after an injured MVP, not to mention getting attacked by the media relentlessly. Never seen him get in Dwight's face in an actual game. They have a game this week; we'll see if he's still a tough guy.

Numerous players have done this to Dwight over the years. I used to watch him get linked by players in Orlando. It's nothing new. I used to argue it's because he was smart/mature/profound enough to know fighting could negatively affect the team and he wouldn't want to get thrown out. But I came to see Dwight isn't that selfless. I honestly just think he shys away from conflict.

I get you're standing up for a Rocket but this has been the story since Orlando. Dwight shys away from altercation, he always has. He'll talk and argue but he'll never put his hands on anyone, not even for a shove.

In fact, when KG was burrowing his forehead into Dwight's face, it looked like Dwight was gonna turn his head and do the hands-up thing that KG always does, as if to say to the officials, 'I'm not doing anything." Only once the refs and teammates stepped in and Dwight was probably safe from a one-on-one with KG did he throw a swipe at his neck.

Call it what you want: maturity, selflessness, idk, but Dwight doesn't want conflict with anyone, even when he honestly gets disrespected blatantly.

I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this mindset and never have. If you're the 8th or 9th guy on a rotation? Sure. Go for it. But if you're one of the 1-2 stars on your roster, you have to recognize that team success is more important than some macho ********. And a legitimate punch could have gotten him suspended for a lot more than a single game. In the Western Conference, 2-3 losses here or there could be the difference between the 3rd seed and the 7th seed.

No it doesn't make you soft and I respect that opinion. I am of the opinion that the real enforcer tough types didn't care what game or what time of year. You either will throw hands or you won't, KG has shown not just from the Peeler clip but from every instance after he will not actually fight anyone in any serious way as far as I can tell.

He tries baiting with a cheap elbow or bumping you with a shoulder or crawling around flapping his lips for the most part. He won't drop bombs on someone like Robert Parrish or Rick Mahorn. Alonzo Morning, Larry Johnson, Ralph Sampson, Bill Cartwright the whole Knicks team there for a minute and so many more. I mean I could go on and on about guys that would actually back up all their stuff with their fists. Iv'e seen Reggie Miller throw more hands than KG and he isn't even the type.

Then you have people saying oh KG would **** this guy up Kg would **** that guy up........ah man KG would kill that guy. That's the thing that get's me, he isn't going to and hasn't ever really ****** anyone up ever.

That's my point KG isn't tough the Peeler incident aside he's had plenty of opportunities to **** someone up and it usually ends in a pushing and shoving match with nothing much happening.

KG had that crazy Ron Artest look in his eyes. Would've liked to have seen them throw down.

I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this mindset and never have. If you're the 8th or 9th guy on a rotation? Sure. Go for it. But if you're one of the 1-2 stars on your roster, you have to recognize that team success is more important than some macho ********. And a legitimate punch could have gotten him suspended for a lot more than a single game. In the Western Conference, 2-3 losses here or there could be the difference between the 3rd seed and the 7th seed.

the only reason I agree with you, is in today's NBA, if Dwight unloads a huge punch on KG, it could cost him 30 games.

I get you're standing up for a Rocket but this has been the story since Orlando. Dwight shys away from altercation, he always has. He'll talk and argue but he'll never put his hands on anyone, not even for a shove.

In fact, when KG was burrowing his forehead into Dwight's face, it looked like Dwight was gonna turn his head and do the hands-up thing that KG always does, as if to say to the officials, 'I'm not doing anything." Only once the refs and teammates stepped in and Dwight was probably safe from a one-on-one with KG did he throw a swipe at his neck.

Call it what you want: maturity, selflessness, idk, but Dwight doesn't want conflict with anyone, even when he honestly gets disrespected blatantly.

This has nothing to do with me defending dwight.

It has everything to do with perception not being fact. Dwight seems soft by never retaliating the same way lebron has never retaliated.

Dwight might be happy go lucky and might even avoid altercation but I don't see it as soft rather than him not wanting beef.

Kg on the other hand is known to get in scuffle then throw his hands up or get in "hold me back" mode.

Kg got offended that Dwight ******* slapped him like the (female dog) kg is.

I tend to not follow narratives or perception brought on by homer laker fans and/or media.

Exactly this. Also, It's a basketball game, not a MMA fight. Garnett knew they were going to lose and wanted a night off. Also, he got to add another notch to his "I woulda killed him if they didn't break it up" belt which we all know is a joke. He knows Dwight's not going to retaliate to the point of hurting him because he's smarter than that.

Dwight is soft but he would break Garnett in half.

It seems awful personal. You've spent a good majority of your posts in this thread defending Dwight. One has to wonder if you'd exert the same effort if it in fact WAS LeBron being called out, or if Dwight had on another jersey.

Dwight has retaliated. He did it against Dalembert in the playoffs in 08. Steve Blake got pushed by Dwight for trash talking and fouling him. This isn't without precedence. But whenever someone steps to Dwight, clearly disrespects him, or puts their hands on him, he shys away. That's probably why KG went after him: he's tried Dwight before on several occasions, and he knows Dwight always backs down. He's physically enormous, but mentally, he's weak. KG is a punk himself, and it speaks volumes when a punk punks out Dwight. Literally the man can't buy respect in this league. If he's not a clown, then the knock is he's not a winner. If he's not a winner, he's a *****. He can't win, and sadly, most of it has merit.

You're obviously misinformed.

I've been in this thread because I have made it be known this isn't so much about dwight(like u want it to be) but more about my hatred of garnett.

You can back and check. I've **** on kg for years.

I also would defend lebron seeing as he's my favorite nonrocket in the league.

Dwight is meh to me. Glad we have him but personally I wish he'd just stop asking for post ups.

My post has everything to do with my dislike for kg and a lil to do with me not following narrative that is about dwight.

This incident almost makes me go to the oh so corny "who really played basketball" argument. There were always guys you really didn't want to run up on, and guys you viewed as creampuffs.

Dwight is a creampuff.

Well, you're right about one thing. That argument IS really corny. Also, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't pick a fight with Dwight Howard in a pickup basketball game.

Did no one else see this part?? Once Howard's back is turned KG tries to sneak up behind him.
Go to .27 seconds.

When you think a dude is soft his stature doesn't matter.

KG wouldn't bust a grape. He's always been all bark and no bite. All he did was put on a show for all the Dwight haters out there. KG looks like a used match......
