Kevin Garnett and Joakim Noah don’t really like each other and that fact was more apparent than ever yesterday when the Bulls and Nets met and KG pretended to bite Noah. Yes, seriously. Per the Chicago Tribune:
“Kevin Garnett tried to bite me. That’s crazy man. It’s unbelievable,” Noah said. “I don’t even know what to say.”
But then Noah said more about the incident, which rapidly circulated via social media following the Bulls’ victory over the Nets.
“I’m happy he didn’t connect,” Noah said. “If somebody tries to bite you, I think it’s a little bit more than trying to get in your head. It’s pretty amazing.”
Garnett laughed when questioned about the incident.
“I know how to bite somebody,” he said. “Obviously I was messing around in that moment. If I wanted to bite him, I’d have just … shout out to Mike Tyson.
“He’s a competitor, I’m a competitor, we’re banging … it is what it is. Every time we’ve played, there’s always something. But I respect the guy, respect the Bulls … everybody over there. I respect everyone in this league.”
