Not shockingly, Doc Rivers stuck up for his star Kevin Garnett in comments made before the Celtics took on the Bucks.
Last night, Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva accused Garnett of calling him a “cancer patient” during the matchup between the two. Garnett denied this.
“I actually heard what Kevin said. I was right there, what he really said is in the statement. I’m going to leave it at that,” he said. “I don’t like the whole tweeting thing. I’m going to state that as well. Guys talk on the court. It doesn’t mean they should or shouldn’t. The fact that we’re talking about this, it’s just silly. It really is. We had a hell of a game yesterday and we should be talking about basketball.
“Talking about what the guys said during the game, there isn’t a place. I don’t find a place for it.”
Rivers, a former player, speaks for a lot of guys who have and are now in the Association.
