Joakim Noah, the most beloved player in the NBA, is making friends again, this time with the Boston fans. Noah doesn’t have much of a soft spot for Kevin Garnett.
“I’m going to say it: He’s a dirty player,” Noah said following Bulls practice Sunday.
Asked if he felt Garnett should be suspended, Noah went even stronger with his criticism.
“I don’t make the decisions,” Noah said. “But he’s always swinging elbows man. I’m hurting right now because of an elbow he threw. It’s unbelievable. He’s a dirty player. It’s one thing to be competitive and compete. But don’t be a dirty player man. He’s a dirty player.
Noah then said he hopes Miami plays Jamal Magloire during the series, apparently meaning that Magloire could be used as an enforcer.
I don’t see Garnett being too dirty. Sure, he gets aggravated and throws the occasional elbow or two, but it’s not like he’s Bruce Bowen or anything. The dirtiest thing about Garnett, for the most part, is his mouth.
As for Noah, I used to be a big fan but I’m quickly souring.
