Did Kevin Garnett drop ‘The Cancer Bomb’ on Charlie Villanueva?

Garnett, known as a trash talker, stuck to his usual routine and did not speak to the media before Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

He did issue a statement before the game.

"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,"’ Garnett said. "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."

One of Villanueva’s tweets read: "KG called me a cancer patient, I’m [mad] because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he’s tossing it like it’s a joke."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: No doubt about it, Kevin Garnett has crossed the line before.

More than once, ‘The Big Ticket’ has exercised questionable judgment, elbowing, pushing, shoving, and brawling with opponents.

Two years ago, he made even Glen Davis cry. Davis is a teammate.  

Despite his questionable reputation, Garnett wouldn’t unleash The Cancer Bomb on Detroit Piston Charlie Villanueva.

Garnett would, however, call the forward cancerous to his team and league. And his version of events was recently confirmed by Boston Celtics coach Glen ‘Doc’ Rivers.

With respect to Villanueva, Garnett is right.
