<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=166668"> Typically, I just get a bunch of mediocre music in my inbox. Now, I'm getting tickets for half-*ss basketball too.

Charlie Villanueva Is A Snitch

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/charlie-villanueva-claims-kevin-garnett-called-him-a-cancer-patient"> The headlines read "Kevin Garnett Called Charlie Villanueva A Cancer Patient." I'd rather you hone in my title instead. Sure, now that the off-color comment has hit the national media, it paints KG as an insensitive, immoral asshole but the context given was trash talk. Off-the-record, on-the-court, unadulterated trash talk. It has been around since the days of peach baskets and will be around long after they make hologram ones. Charlie V. is one of the NBA's avid Twitter users; infamously making headlines for <a href="http://twitter.com/CV31/status/1332313161"> Tweeting from the locker room</a> so his candidness isn't surprising.
