Link(Charlie Villanueva's Twitter)
I've already heard people say, "Well that's trash-talking." Um, no; it's complete bullshit and very UNfunny. It is FAR past the acceptable limits of trash-talk.
Unacceptable trash-talk topics: Diseases, racial slurs, sexual orientation questioning, hateful comments about the players' children, etc.
Acceptable trash-talk topics: Saying you banged their mom/wife/girlfriend, talking about how shitty their game is, telling them they have no chance to score on you, telling them how much their team sucks, etc.
Keep in mind that Villanueva suffers from the skin disease alopecia universalis, which likely is the reason Garnett made the "cancer patient" comment. In case Villanueva hadn't heard enough crap from immature assholes throughout his life, here he is at the age of 26 hearing that he looks like a cancer patient from a 34-year-old.
But we all certainly say stupid things that we regret, and we live in a forgiving society. So today, Garnett got the chance to either clear up what he was saying or at least apologize. Here's what he said:
“I am aware there was a major miscommunication regarding something I said on the court last night. My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact ‘You are cancerous to your team and our league.’ I would never be insensitive to the brave struggle that cancer patients endure. I have lost loved ones to this deadly disease and have a family member currently undergoing treatment. I would never say anything that distasteful. The game of life is far bigger than the game of basketball.”Link(Boston Herald)
Give. Me. A. Fucking. Break. That's the biggest crock of shit explanation I've ever heard. All you had to do was apologize, and we would soon forget this ever happened. But instead, you say he's "cancerous to the team and our league? Really? You seriously think we're all going to believe a scientific-sounding "cancerous to the team and our league" comment is used during trash-talk of an NBA game from a guy that didn't even attend college? Nice try.
Sadly, there surely are some people out there that will buy your pathetic explanation(these are either Celtics/diehard Kevin Garnett fans in denial, or people that can't even tell you who our President is), but the rest of us just think you're more of a dickhead than we did last night, which I didn't think was very possible.
