Kevin Garnett touched off a firestorm and Charlie Villanueva has every right to be angry with the ill-tempered Boston Celtics star if what he allegedly told Villanueva is actually true.
Following the Detroit Pistons loss to the Celtics last night, Villanueva tweeted: ""KG called me a cancer patient, I'm pissed because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he's tossing it like it's a joke."
For those that are wondering, Villanueva has a medical condition called alopecia universalis, which causes Villanueva not to grow hair, hence the cancer reference.
Anyway, this exchance wasn't caught on camera, so there's no definitive proof that it happened.
But there's no reason to believe Villanueva would make that up out of the blue, and Garnett does have a tendency to drop F-bombs and talk smack during just about every game.
So it's not surprising that Garnett was running his mouth toward Villanueva, who actually responded with some nice trash talk of his own.
And Villanueva and Garnett certainly know how to talk the talk, but where do they rank among the biggest trash talkers in sports?
Let's rank the top 20.
