Still waiting for you to admit Wade is dirty, buit kicks in the balls and dislocating shoulders hasnt done it yet, so I doubt you ever will.

He plays dirty, but you make Garnett out to be this despicable human being which he is not. He does nothing off the court to deserve that. Never arrested, barely suspended, never badly in the news.

Big difference from playing dirty like a lot of players in this league do, some down in Miami, and being a terrible person, which he is not.

When did I say wade wasn't dirty. I admitted that as of recent wade has had some excessively chippy and 'dirty' play. Is he on kgs level yet? No not even close.

But back on topic, i love seeing the passion. I'm tired of everyone being best friends in the nba. If these two play in the playoffs it's going to be a doozy!

ok now that the race card has been thrown, show me the last time a white basketball player waited after a game by the team bus to continue a battle that started on the court.

Or go ahead and show me a white player who tells people they look like cancer patients or talk about people's wives?

But it is ok because it is kg and he is just passionate---right

If only kg could rely on his game instead of having to resort to insults to get someone off their game. Haha

I guess I would be a little bitter too if I was only the second best pf of this decade.

I think you're missing the point....

Which is, that whenever a black athlete loses his cool and does something idiotic....he is labeled a thug, gangster, and other derogatory Black stereotypical names.

When a white athlete loses his cool he is not called any such names.

It's not about who does what, it's about why are races still being treated this way.

Melo and KG are NOT thugs or gangsters....FAR from it.

in the NHL, it is "part of the game". its well regulated and clear rules around it. MLB it is an unwritten rule. those who go outside of the unwritten rule are labeled thugs too.

dare you to give some examples of white athletes getting in comparable types of altercations.

only ones i can think of off the top of my head are the nascar guys, and they are definitely called everything in the book

& the only pitchers to ever really get called out for beaming, are the ones who do it outside of the unwritten rule, and ARE called thugs. see cole hamels for reference

People who think KG and Melo are thugs or gangsters are fortunate enough to have been sheltered enough in life to not understand what a real thug or gangster is.

If he did say something about his wife, its disrespectful.

Doesn't give reason for Melo to do what he did, BUT leave the wives and moms out of the trash talk.

Kg pussies out. There is nothing wrong with what melo did. So many people nowadays forget their manhood to look classy. If someone bullies you, you call them out and see if they are a man of their word. "game face" KG is obviously just that, soft puffy marshmallows underneath:

Seriously? Nothing wrong with chasing after someone and then trying to fight them outside the bus? Where do you live?

KG made a stupid comment about cereal, how is that bullying? Isnt Melo a superstar potential MVP candidate and he is being bullied by saying his wife tastes like a fantastic breakfast cereal?

Come on man, Melo should have just laughed at it because its silly.

Bullied? HA

KG might not be a thug or gangster, but he's definitely got something wrong with him. If it's a mental condition I mean no disrespect, but the way he acts is so immature it's downright disgusting to watch. I am a teacher and I swear some of my third graders are more intelligent than that guy. He's either got a serious problem or he's just an idiot.

You would make a very poor professional athlete. Players hear tons of insults and heckling.... So if a fan called Melo or another player something and they didn't like it the solution is to track them down and try to fight them?

What des this have to do with his intelligence? So any player who has done things like this must have a mental condition or be stupid?

I would think that it takes some brains to be able to comprehend defensive rotations, remember plays, and understand basketball tactics...

So when Bynum shoved Barea to the ground that meant he was unintelligent?

Same for wade kicking sessions in the balls?

Dwight Howard shoving Jordan Hills face?

Ron Artest for going into the stands?

To say all this people are stupid or not intelligent is pretty narrow minded..

So he barks and taunts someone on the court, a court where trash talking and chippy play is an every day occurrence and you think he has something wrong with him? He does act pretty intense and strange at times, but you obviously do not like him for other reasons but to say him barking or taunting is worse than a 3rd grader is a bit much man, and again, ON THE COURT where a lot of this stuff happens not just from KG.

Not to mention he is going to go down as a top 30 player of ALL TIME, and you think he might have a mental condition? I hope you do not judge your students this way

There is a fine line between hitting someone and barking at someone like a dog or growling at them.
