FanDuel - WFBC

KG gets ejected for tossed ball: KG has been known to toss balls at the bottom of the basket when he gets called for a foul. No big deal. I hope the league doesn't suspend him. Not because I'm a huge KG and T'Wolves fan, but because it would be ridiculous.

I just hope this doesn't turn into another Davis incident like earlier this year (which he should not have been suspended at all. Punished for defending your wife of about 4 years? Next they will get punished for feeding their children, but nothing will happen if another girl gets raped....) Are you referring to Davis' wife, the wife who tossed a cup of hot coffee in a woman's face in a parking lot dispute? A wife who at the time of the coffee incident was illegally driving in the state of Illinois. A wife who I am sure did nothing that night at the United Center to provoke an incident? Anyway, KG is a good guy and I am sure there was no malice in his actions. I smell an academy award by the fan who was hit by the wayward ball. But, being as that may be, he should not have thrown the ball out of frustration. If I get frustrated over a parking lot snafu and toss a hot cup of coffee in someone's face, should I be held accountable for my actions? I think so.

A wife who at the time of the coffee incident was illegally driving in the state of Illinois. A wife who I am sure did nothing that night at the United Center to provoke an incident? Don't forget all the expletive-filled phone messages she left on a Toronto newspaper reporter's voice mail after he criticized her husband's play with the Raptors. I smell an academy award by the fan who was hit by the wayward ball. If you haven't seen the clip, it's hilarious. It's obvious that he's trying to milk it for some money, and when he gets hauled out of the stadium on the stretcher/gurney...just pathetic. Punished for defending your wife of about 4 years? Next they will get punished for feeding their children, but nothing will happen if another girl gets raped.... If you can't tell the difference between what happens within the realm of the NBA game (running into the crowd, throwing the ball carelessly) and what happens off the court to a player on their own free time (especially something where the charges were eventually dropped), then I guess I can see why you'd have some bizarre, righteous indignation.

I can't believe how much of an ass the guy was acting like. You'd think he got hit by a brick. Yes, I understand the surprise of being hit by a ball if you're not looking. Being taken out of the arena the way he did was a joke. Great example he showed for his already overweight kid. If he had been cool about the whole thing, KG would have given him a bunch of free stuff any way. I think we can all see this going to court in the very near future.

Dude, lay off the Bible-length description. Save the editorializing for an inside comment ... or at least de-Michener it. As for the incident, Garnett had to get the fine, but how will that fan ever be able to show his face in public again? I've seen better acting in the Debble Does Dallas series. In short: Image hosting by Photobucket

Yeah he caked it up for the camera! He is such a whimp! I've played ball all my life and been hit during plays in the face and everywhere else, with much more force than KG used and at worst it stung me! He turned into a true nothing! To top it all of, his kid was crying!

To top it all of, his kid was crying! Probably because her life was just ruined because she has a dumb-ass dad, and she's going to get picked on for the rest of her life.

Save the editorializing for an inside comment Yeah, it's better to give a super-short description and THEN post your opinion inside if you want. The best posts are usually written fairly neutral.
