Kevin Garnett vs. Tim Duncan
Kevin Garnett will forever be known as one of the most relentless trash talkers in the history of the NBA, and Tim Duncan will forever be known as one of the most lethal silent assassins to play the game himself. That’s why, when the two of them faced each other in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, the battles were so epic. The usually stoic Duncan reportedly despised Garnett because of the latter’s antics. It seemed like Garnett was one of the few players who could get under Duncan’s skin, by pestering Duncan and taking little cheap shots at him whenever he could over the course of a game.
