Following the Thunder’s big win over Boston Wednesday night, Kevin Garnett was frustrated with the fact Boston took just 17 free throws to OKC’s 34, with Kevin Durant taking 15 of those. So he decided to articulate it on live television. Cover your ears if you don’t like bad words.
If you prefer not to watch and hear Garnett’s potty mouth, here’s what he said: “I thought we were playing Michael (expletive) Jordan the way he was getting the whistle. Durant damn near shot more free throws than our whole team. That’s the game.”
With Durant dropping 37 points in Boston, I can understand the confusion for Garnett, but it has nothing to do with the whistle. Garnett has a big mouth so this is nothing new, but with OKC winning one of its biggest games of the year over the Celtics, hearing KG go sour grapes is kind of satisfying. As Garnett griped, all I can think of is this. Mmm, tears.
