Two nights ago, the Celtics completely blew out the Pistons but the bigger story is what happened is what Charlie Villanueva posted on his twitter which said, “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.” All I got to say is wow. I knew KG has a big mouth and is a complainer but I didn’t think he would go that far.
This is what Kevin Garnett had to say in a statement, “My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact ‘You are cancerous to your team and our league,'” He then added, “I would never be insensitive to the brave struggle that cancer patients endure. I have lost loved ones to this deadly disease and have a family member currently undergoing treatment. I would never say anything that distasteful. The game of life is far bigger than the game of basketball.”
My thought it is, if that’s what KG meant then he should have used a better choice of words, because Charlie V suffers from a skin disease called alopecia universalis, a medical condition that results in hair loss. The thing of it is, don’t cancer patients lose their hair sometimes when going through chemo? Yes they do so for KG to even make that statement is just horrible. I really think that KG should be fined for those comments and possible even have a 1 or 2 game suspension. The guy has always had a big mouth and has always been a complainer so it’s about time he be punished it for it.
I am not saying this because I am a Pistons fan from Michigan. I am saying it, because it’s just not right. I know their is trash talking that goes on out on the court but that was just plain crossing the line. I would keep looking at this story really closely and I would be curious to see how things go down the next time the Pistons and Celtics play each other.
