As good as Kevin Garnett is as basketball, he is best known for his trash talk. According to Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams, Garnett's trash talk makes you reconsider your place in the sport altogether.

Adams recently spoke about some of the smack-talking that goes on in the NBA. He said he doesn't like to do much talking on the court, but he has heard his fair share of insults.

Who does Adams consider to be among the best trash-talkers in the NBA? Garnett and former Thunder big man Kendrick Perkins.

Just read what Adams had to say about those two. When a player can get inside your head like that, it really can give the opponent an advantage.
