Kevin Garnett tried to bite Joakim Noah’s hand during the Chicago Bulls’ 102-84 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. Noah couldn’t believe it either. The Bulls’ All-Star center has a long history with Garnett and admitted in the past that the future Hall of Famer is one of the players he looked up to most growing up. But even he couldn’t believe Garnett tried to gnaw at his fingers, even if it was in jest.

“He tried to bite me, man,” Noah said through laughter in the Bulls’ locker room. “That’s crazy, man. It’s unbelievable. Kevin Garnett tried to bite me, man. It’s unbelievable. I don’t even know what to say.”

Garnett had to laugh about it as well.

“I know how to bite somebody,” Garnett told reporters in the Nets’ locker room. “Obviously I was messing around in that moment. If I wanted to bite him, I’d have just … shout out to Mike Tyson.”

Was it the craziest thing anyone has ever tried to do to Noah on the floor?

“Tried to bite me?” Noah said. “I’m happy he didn’t connect.”

“If somebody tries to bite you I think it’s a little bit more than trying to get in your head,” Noah said. “I don’t know, but it’s pretty amazing.”
