VIDEO: Kevin Garnett Shoves Bill Walker After Celtics' Loss To Knicks

What would the NBA be without an incident involving Kevin Garnett and a player less heralded than Kevin Garnett? It took just one game for something like that to happen to Garnett during the 2011-12 season. In the immediate seconds following the Boston Celtics' 106-104 loss to the New York Knicks on Christmas Day, Garnett and Bill Walker were tangled up, and Garnett shoved him away.

Walker is a former Celtics player who reportedly wasn't amused by the way Garnett treated rookies. He was also the man guarding Garnett on the final play, and he helped cause the miss. Chances are, he's still not especially fond of Garnett after that exchange. Visual evidence proves that.
