It has now been over 10 days since Detroit Pistons forward, Charlie Villanueva accused Boston Celtics forward, Kevin Garnett of calling him a “cancer patient.” Not much has been made of the situation recently, but one has to wonder if it would be best for Garnett to try and remedy the situation in order to improve his image, which has been on the decline ever since he became a world champion.
For those that may not know what happened, Villanueva suffers from Alopecia Universalis, a condition that causes all of the body’s hair to fall out, hence his lack of eyebrows. While Alopecia Universalis is not a disease and does not cause drastic harm to the body, it’s still an affliction that Villanueva is obviously sensitive about.
The major question that still looms is did KG actually refer to CV as a cancer patient? Celtics coach Doc Rivers says no. Yet others, even in the Boston media (WEEI), had difficulty believing Garnett’s statement that he claimed to have called Villanueva “cancerous to your team and our league” and not anything associated with Charlie’s personal battles.
Regardless of if KG actually did say what Villanueva said he did, the haters can hate even more now, which begs the question: Can Kevin Garnett properly make amends for his comments?
