Kevin Garnett has received criticism over his career for being a dirty player. That's just how he is. He's just intense. Heck, he'd probably go insane over orange juice.

Atlanta Hawks co-owner, Michael Gearon Jr., dissed the Boston Celtics big man, saying that K.G. is the dirtiest guy in the league.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

“On top of all that, we don’t get any calls, which I know everybody always hears. But I’ll give you a stat. Last night, we are playing this old physical team. They are old. I know what happens when you play basketball, old guys foul. [Kevin] Garnett is the dirtiest guy in the league. We are playing Boston last night and they had two fouls the whole first half. We had five times that and we’re athletic.”

It's not all about youth. Gearon Jr. really isn't happy so far this series, and if Atlanta keeps playing the way they are, they'll most likely lose this series in six games, which they're heading to.

Maybe he should stop with the excuses.
