Kevin Garnett can be so insensitive sometimes

King Ing November 3, 2010 1

Charlie Villanueva vented on his Twitter account last night after his Pistons lost to the Boston Celtics. And what he tweeted is quite disturbing.

“KG called me a cancer patient, I’m pissed because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he’s tossing it like it’s a joke.”

Villanueva suffers from alopecia areata, a skin condition that results in the loss of hair.

Why Kevin Garnett would even go there is beyond me. As a Celtics fan I want to give KG the benefit of the doubt. But when he does things like this it is hard to justify liking the man. People might be right in saying “The Big Ticket” is a classless human being.

    I seriously think Kevin Garnett’s cancer comments were inappropriate and unprofessional. I mean, I like this guy. He is a great athlete, and an extremely hard worker. However, his actions are sometimes out of line. Of course, there will always be trash talk on the basketball court, but thoughtless comments about cancer are just wrong, especially when it is breast cancer awareness month. I love basketball, but I think classless actions like this will ruin the sport. The NBA has to do something about this!
