Kevin Garnett Tries to Intimidate Jose Calderon
It's great to see a player of Garnett's caliber get that hyped for a regular season game. However, I definitely think he stepped over the line on this one.
There is no way the refs didn't see him clapping or wagging his finger at Calderon. That is blatant taunting and if it were any other player the refs would have nailed him with a technical foul. As well, if a guy like OJ Mayo would have done something like that everyone in the media would have been writing up pieces on how Mayo is a thug and representative of everything that is wrong with the league.
Yes it was entertaining to watch, but it's still something that no one else in the league would be allowed to get away with. Some people would say this is just another example of the Celtics being allowed to cheat their way to victory.
Watching the clip also caused me to gain a lot of admiration for Jose Calderon. You see how he didn't back down from Garnett? That's how you handle a situation like that. I hope Calderon's buddy Pau Gasol is taking notes.
