Kevin Garnett blows in David West’s ear in ‘aggressive’ fashion

For all the touching tributes and sober analysis of Kevin Garnett’s future as an NBA player beyond the expiration of his contract this summer, it is necessary to remind ourselves that he’s still the same sort of KG that we’ve grown to love, fear, and roll our eyes at since 1995.

I mean, the dude blew in a guy’s ear on Saturday night. Watch:

To recap: Garnett fouled Indiana Pacers forward David West, and then loudly stomped around Barclays Center complaining about West’s supposed flopping. Garnett followed this by blowing in West’s ear as the Pacers set up to in-bound the ball, West then brushed Garnett off and received a technical foul for his troubles.

All this took place in the first quarter, mind you.

Obviously, Garnett’s move reminds of Lance Stephenson’s infamous trolling of LeBron Jamesduring last spring’s postseason, but West will have none of those comparisons. To the media following the contest, via Newsday:

“I think Lance’s was more sensual. That was an aggressive blow.”

That would be Kevin Garnett, king of the “aggressive blow” on defense.

The Nets fell in the game and failed to add to what had been a three-game winning streak. The highest paid roster in the NBA fell at home by 25 points to an undermanned Pacers squad in what should have been an embarrassing defeat – presuming anything embarrasses these guys any more. The Pacers actually went on a 102-71 run to end the game, following Garnett’s blow and West’s technical foul
