Kevin Garnett Put His Hand on Bill Walker’s Throat, but He Likely Won’t be Punished
KG missed a last-second jumper that could have tied the Celtics-Knicks game Sunday. It looks like his former teammate/current Knicks guard, Bill Walker, talked some trash to him after the brick. Garnett responded by briefly choking Walker.
A few reporters said Garnett will not be fined or suspended for the incident. We can’t understand why. Is the NBA saying it’s OK to act like you’re choking another player? Maybe a suspension would have been overboard since it was so brief, but at least hit him with a $50,000 fine given his history. Garnett may say he’s not a dirty player, but we would say otherwise. It’s incidents like this that led one player to call KG a coward and punk.
