Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett has been accused of…something. There’s no fun, politically-correct way to summarize calling someone a “cancer patient,” but that’s the charge being levied against Garnett by Detroit Pistons big man Charlie Villanueva. Villanueva suffers from alopecia, which some of you heathens out there might refer to as “Roger Sitwell Disease,” the inability to grow hair anywhere on his body. Yes, ladies. There, too.
“KG talks alot of crap, he’s prob never been in a fight,” Villanueva wrote, “I would love to get in a ring with him, I will expose him.”
“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,” he wrote.
“I wouldn’t even trip about that, but a cancer patient, I know way 2 many people who passed away from it, and I have a special place 4 those.” –CV31 (Villanueva’s Twitter page).
I have no qualms with trash talk during a game, which, by the way, the Pistons lost handily. This almost sounds like something of an excuse. Is this the first time that Charlie has ever taken crap for being hairless? I can’t imagine that to be true. .
Mississippi State’s defensive end Nick Bell, who actually did die of cancer. I’m sure Garnett is working on some great material for that; cancer in the South must be comedy gold to a guy like that. Something else you might appreciate.
