So what ? A lot of players have dirty tricks. It's really nothing new. I'm sure a lot of guys here who play basketball regularly have their own tricks. Well I know I do and I've seen a bunch of other players do the same.

But because it's KG we're supposed to be hating ?

Garnett himself is worse than the whole Spurs team.

maybe some of you haven't played much competitive basketball, but all "good" defenders don't play by the rules. not rodman. not stockton. not jordan. not even hakeem. their goal is not to play clean defense and be friendly to you. their goal is to simply to stop you. if it takes a little something extra and is considered more than a questionable foul but passable, they'd go through lengths to pull it to their personal advantage.

guys using tricks to get unfair advantages... unheard of. who cares if he talks about it, the games are televised you can see him do it. He gets superstar calls, they aren't gonna call it.

Sometime I wonder if the refs are even watching what happens on the court. But hey, if I got payed so much I probably wouldn't care either.

I wish there was an aggressive post player to really teach him a lesson in the NBA today. Too bad a majority of young guns are all passsive and play facing the basket (Thanks David Stern).

Do you idiots realize that every team that's won the title in the past 10 years has cheated? On the Lakers, Kobe was allowed to play crazy touch D and punch Mike Bibby in the nose and Shaq was allowed to throw elbows everytime he touched the ball. On the Spurs, Bowen is allowed to go on a rampage of rape everygame and Ginobili and Duncan flop and whine to get fouls all the time. D-Wade got about 20 phantom freethrows in his finals. Detroit, well they are hard working but also a dirty team and Boston has KG teaching his entire young team how to get away with fouls, good teams cheat, nothing wrong with it, it's how it is in all sports, look at the Patriots in football and Argentina and Italy in soccer.

Rather than complaining some of you young guys looking to make Varsity at your high school need to take notes. Not often you have a NBA guy mentions "tricks of the trade" in such an open setting.

Everyone does it to an extent. Not everyone brazenly (or arguably foolishly) discusses it in an open forum like Garnett, but that's just Garnett. To write the guy off for admitting this kind of nonsense would mean you'd have to write off any player with a overtly physical game.

I definitely don't think encouraging 'dishonest' ball in any way is commendable but these guys have probably been doing this stuff since they were playing street ball. Anything else wouldn't be real. If this kind of skillset got them to the NBA you can't expect them to change.
