Jalen Rose on Trash Talk "What Happens On The Court Should Stay There"
Jalen Rose made this point today; basically the NBA court is a sanctuary. Trash talk is a part of the game. What happens on the court should be kept there and not taken to the net or twitter. It's common knowledge that Garnett is a big trash talker on the court and will do anything to psyche out his opponent. He even talks to himself on the court. Whether KG really said it or not only he and Villanueva really know.
Although cancer is a very harsh and touchy subject, in my opinion Villanueva should have handled it on the court and moved on. If Garnett did indeed say it he should apologize and that's a different debate for another day... but Villanueva taking it to the net may not have been the best approach. Neither was KG's response, which actually made him look more guilty than anything.
Overall the point is, settle it on the court and leave it there. Either drop some heavy numbers on KG's head or hit him with an elbow or something (like Anthony Peeler did a few years back). Handle it on the hardwood and move on.
