It took a few days, but lost amongst the C’s fifth straight win against the Rockets last night was the fact that postgame, Kevin Garnett went on the record with NBATV to talk about his trash talk and the subsequent hoopla with Carmelo Anthony earlier this week. KG had chosen to avoid addressing the incident with local media earlier in the week, but given the broader national stage on NBATV, probably felt this was the best way to put the questions to bed for good.
You can check out the question and response at the four minute mark of the video, but here’s the full quote if you don’t have a chance to watch:(h/t: John at Red’s Army)
“It’s unfortunate Melo got a game, I thought he was obviously… the crowd got the thing out of whack… but I would never disrespect anyone’s wife or anyone’s family. I’m a better person than that. I got family…. I think whenever you get two gladiators, two guys that really want to win, things happen. But I should have never gotten to that, it’s unfortunate, but we’ve moved on.”
Well said by Garnett.
