KG Suspended – What a Load of Crap

The NBA announced on Monday that Kevin Garnett will be suspended for one game for hitting Bucks center Andrew Bogut in the face on Saturday.

Bogut didn’t get off, however, with the league also upgrading the foul he committed that started the altercation to a Flagrant 1.

The incident happened late in the fourth quarter of the Celtics’ 102-97 overtime win in Milwaukee.

Garnett will sit out Tuesday’s game against the New York Knicks in Boston.

KG gets knocked in the mouth….and he’s the one who gets suspended? His retaliation was more flailing of the arms than a punch. It’s a joke…period.

Thanks to ShooterMcGavin for posting the news in our comments….

In an effort to keep everyone smiling though, I’ve got some great cheerleader photos after the jump.

    anyway…anybody see the new shaq espn commercial where hes playing scrabble

    its pure gold

  2. ludicrous

  3. That espn commercial is shaqtastic….

  4. Shaqtus. Hilarious.

    Btw I missed the Bucks game but just saw the youtube replay of the foul in question. And it is complete BS…

  5. I sold my tickets to this game yesterday to a girl in my office as a early Christmas present for her fiancee who is in the service and will be gone for the holidays.

    Now I feel like a heel. I didn’t know they were going suspend KG.

  6. Jesus Christ Stern let the kids play ball. Handing out suspensions for the slap and tickle fights is as weak as scola’s right cross.

  7. I knew Denver was God’s country.

    Oh yeah, and if Garnett knew he was going to get suspended, he would have landed a punch. There’s a message, “you are going to get suspended anyway so make it a worthwhile swing”
