Point is, you can construe everything KG says (outside the supposed 'cancer patient' remark), that's the beauty of his trash talk - it walks the line between being a smart ass and being cruel.


I think the Happy Mother's Day comment was more so calling TD a woman/mother than dissing TD's mom who died of breast cancer a day before his 14th BDay.

Said Anthony: "Nothing happened for me to be suspended," adding, "I just wanted to know what was being said, where was all that coming from. Whatever was being said on the basketball court, where was it coming from?"


Translation:

"I just wanted to know - you ****in' my wife?!"

This sounds unfamiliar, care to explain?





LOL the guy just won the Championship. He was just overwhelmed, anything could have come out of that guy's mouth at that moment. People forget this is the same KG who couldn't win on his own in Minnesota in the playoffs except for that 1 season when Cassell and Sprewell helped him.

Well, I agree. Nothing wrong with it.

If KG did call CV a "cancer patient", then he was out of line there. But he wouldn't have known TD's mother was dead, and this Honey Nut Cheerios thing is just too funny to be offended by it. :lol:

Calling Lala a honey nut cheerio? Wow...I wonder what Lamar would do if KG calls Khloe a white chocolate cookies and cream?

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.

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.
