Kevin Garnett Reportedly Called Charlie Villanueva “Cancer Patient”
Kevin Garnett may be known for his trash talking skills as much as for his basketball prowess, but the Boston Celtics forward may have gone too far this time when he reportedly called Detroit Pistons player Charlie Villanueva a cancer patient.
In a Twitter post after the Celtics dominated the Pistons, 109-86, on Tuesday, Villanueva said he was angry at Garnett for making fun of cancer patients. Villanueva suffers from a condition known as alopecia universalis, which causes the 26-year-old power forward to lose hair. “KG called me a cancer patient, I’m pissed because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he’s tossing it like it’s a joke.”
Villanueva, who scored 17 points in the Pistons’ fourth-straight loss, said in another tweet that he would love to take on Garnett off the court if only to stop the Celtics star from insulting people. “KG talks alot of crap, he’s prob never been in a fight, I would love to get in a ring with him, I will expose him,” Villanueva said.
Garnett’s camp has yet to comment on Villanueva’s alleged Twitter posts.
