I hate to agree with HP but really the only way to deal with trash talk is to ignore it or reply with better trash talk. Once you let any action of a bully like KG get into your head it just sets you up for permanent bully status. Here is the proper response Melo should have done.

Option A
KG: Your wife taste like honey nut cheerios
Melo: I know she is sweet as hell. Your wife tastes like &%*ing oatmeal. Your mother on the other hand is puuuure sugar.

Option B
KG: Your wife tastes like honey nut cheerios
Melo: (says nothing until he scores on KG) How'd that taste?

Option C
Nothing



Option F-
flip out and go screaming like an 8 year old saying you can't say that about my wife.

I don't think KG has to worry about dismantling Lamar. He does that on his own.

A lot of posters here just hate Carmelo so they're supporting KG.

If this was said to a likable guy such as Steve Nash, Derrick Rose, etc. and he reacted similarly then I bet that people here would comment how it was justified and how classless Garnett is.

Like toast's options, but as with so much in life, a lot of time and effort can be saved by mastering the skill of the single eyebrow arch.

I used to love to hate Reggie Miller way back. Garnett just makes me wonder why he's still alive.

Some posters seems to think trash talking is not 'unsportsmanship', and that reacting at trash talking is a sign of mental weakness.
I disagree. I may be the devil advocate (in this case: god advocate), but I think trash talking :
- has nothing to do with toughness
- completely 'unsportsmanship' (I don't know if that word exist)
- shouldn't be allowed in the NBA
"But the thing is, maybe I do want to wake up one morning and say, `Baby, let's go to the Bahamas. Today.' That costs money. So what if I want to do that?

I think you are conflating issues. Trash talking isn't tough, but not knowing how to deal with it is a weakness. It's there...if you play sports enough, you're going to have to know how to deal with it.

Some guys trashtalk to get to you, some just do it to pump themselves up and getting to you would just be a bonus..but there are always going to be guys who do it, and if you don't handle it, you're costing your team.

As far as not allowing it, that would be pretty hard to mandate. And besides, the refs have enough trouble implementing the rules. Playing recess monitor on top would be a bit much.

Yep.

I don't care about the Melo situation specifically, but generally speaking, Garnett is by far one of the most annoying personalities in sports. How anyone can take him seriously, or call him 'tough' is beyond me.

so I guess that means Melo's caliper score is low ... good thing BC looks for this kind of stuff when evaluating players.

WHAT IS THE COST OF POSTING ON THE INTERNET IN A HOUSE FULL OF MODELS?


Tracey nice: your post reminds me Garnett: caplocked barking, away from threats, in front of your computer.

I agree with HP: We should make the decision based on cost/benefit, And a little bit independantly of the reason why we have to make a decision.
But I don't think most NBA players have the maturity to always apply this rule, especially during an intense event.
And even me (who are against violence and even more against trash talking, and older than NBA players), I think the best reaction to KG trash talk is completely ignoring him or laughing at him, and the second best reaction would be to physically attacking him. About a fight with KG: the cost/benefit wouldn't be bad: maybe a ssupension, but better reputation, and maybe changing KG behavior.
PS : one poster wrote in this thread that 'Raptors are stuck with soft players like Calderon...'. Ironically, Calderon was one who showed he was not afraid of Garnett.

I'm just surprised at how KG literally mind f***** Melo, made him miss so many shots, and then had him running around the building. Now that's how you get into someones head
