Kevin Garnett Voted NBA’s Biggest Trash Talker
According to his peers, Kevin Garnett is the worst trash-talker in the NBA.
And it isn’t close.
Garnett received 62 percent of the vote in a Sports Illustrated poll of 173 league players who were asked to name the worst trash talker in the league. The second-place finisher — the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant — had 7 percent.
Garnett, however, isn’t the only loudmouth on the Celts if the league’s players are to be believed. Paul Pierce was third in the voting with 5 percent and Rasheed Wallace tied for fourth with 3 percent, giving Boston three of the top five trash-talkers in the league.
