Last week, a blog was posted on ESPN.com Insider by an anonymous NBA star, ‘Player X,’ calling Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett a “punk and a coward.”
Here is what ‘Player X’ had to say about KG:
“Garnett is a punk and a coward. I know, I know. Easy for me to say behind this column. Don’t worry, I’ll tell him to his face, too. And I’m not the only one who thinks that: If you’re not on his team, chances are you hate the guy. You can learn a lot about him by watching his eyes. If he’s talking to you — and he’s always talking — he avoids eye contact. My advice to other guys in the league: Stare him down, and he’ll retreat. From what I’ve seen, he’ll never mix it up with a player who’s bigger than he is. Personally, I think he’s scared to fight — like a playground bully who barks but doesn’t bite.”
Now, I never like KG because he is a trash talker who only steps to little guys but never picks on someone his own size. And let a shoving match happen in a Boston game, you’ll never see KG in the middle of it because he runs away like a punk. If you’re going to talk trash about someone then back it up, KG.
But anyway, back to ‘Player X.’
Really dude? You’re calling someone a punk on a sports blog under the name ‘Player X’………. The only one looking like punk and a coward right now is you.
What kind of man does this? And your suppose to be a NBA star at that. Really?
Anyone who calls out another person and too afraid to say their government name is a punk and a coward.
Although you said you’d call him a punk to his face, I bet $1 that you won’t (I don’t like to bet a lot of money). Because any player who talks about another player on a blog under the name ‘Player X’ is scared to say anything to someone’s face, and therefore, a coward.
So, you sir can exit stage left, please and thank you.
