Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard got tangled up after a play and it turned ugly with KG headbutting Howard and they two had to be separated by referees and their teammates. Hit the jump for details.

Via Complex Sports:

Kobe Bryant. Kevin Durant. Now, Kevin Garnett. The NBA regular season hasn’t even hit the halfway point and Garnett has become the third player to get into it with Dwight Howard. Nearly midway through the first quarter of tonight’s game between the Houston Rockets and Brooklyn Nets, KG and Howard got tangled up a little bit. It seemed like a harmless foul, but things escalated pretty quickly.

A push by Garnett turned into a retaliation shot by Howard and then things got out of hand. KG sealed his fate for the rest of the night by throwing the ball at DH and delivering a headbutt right to the dome.

The Atlanta Hawks were previously having trouble with fan attendance so they’ve done several different promotions to entice people to come to the games.  One promotion they held was “Swipe Right Night” sponsored by Tinder.  If you don’t know, Tinder is a “dating” app (really used for people to hookup) where it tells you what other Tinder users are in your vicinity and if you like their picture you can “swipe right” to try to create a match.  If both parties agree to a match based on the most superficial of qualities, well then you take it from there, but we know what happens next.  Anyways a Twitter user asked the Brooklyn Nets why they didn’t host a Tinder night as well and they had the perfect response.

(Video&Photos) NBA: Kevin Garnett Angry With Fans For Cheering His Dunks?

IFWT_KG


Not sure why any NBA player would ever get mad at his own fans for cheering when he scores. Kevin Garnett sounds like a grumpy old man today after lashing out at fans for cheering after he threw down an alley oop against the Sacramento Kings. He feels like fans are giving him pity and surprised he can still dunk at his age, which obviously sounds like he is thinking way too much towards the end of his career. Most athletes can not dream of still being able to hang and perform with the best of them at age 38 and that is what KG really should be focused on and happy about. Check the gallery.
