This Might Be Why Tim Duncan Hates Kevin Garnett
Tim Duncan hates someone? The Tim Duncan that carries himself like the nicest guy in school? The one who doesn't worry about cliques and eats lunch with different people all the time and one time helped that kid with the glasses out of the trash can and told him to keep his chin up (probably)? That Tim Duncan? Why? |
Some intense Googling reveals one potential source of the hatred...
NOTE: This is an unsubstantiated rumor and should be treated as such.
The story goes that on May 9, 1999 (Mother's Day), Tim Duncan's Spurs played Kevin Garnett's Timberwolves in the first round of the NBA playoffs. During that game, Garnett, who is known for his incessant need to trash talk and intense dislike for any sort of decency did what he does best. He went too far.
Just as Tim Duncan was going to take two free throws, Garnett barked at him:
Tim Duncan's mother famously died of breast cancer the day before his 14th birthday.
If that's true, Kevin Garnett is an evil dude.
