Kevin Garnett is one of the most beloved NBA players of all time, but he’s also one of the dirtiest players of all time. Garnett was every definition of dirty. He was physical on both ends of the court. He threw elbows. He set dirty screens. He was even known to slap a dude in the nuts on a jump shot. If KG thought he could get away with it on a court, he would try it. He might even do it if he knew he’d get caught.
But the dirtiest part of Garnett’s game was his filthy mouth. Others may have trash talked more, but KG’s trash talk hurt. He was known to call opponents cancer patients and talked so much trash even the other trash talkers like Joakim Noah and Kendrick Perkins were intimidated by him.
