Hawks Owner: Kevin Garnett Is The 'Dirtiest Guy In The League'

Kevin Garnett has not been the most popular player in the league the past few years, and the Hawks' series hasn't done much to dispel any criticism. First, Ivan Johnson called him out, and now an Atlanta Hawks owner is adding to the chorus. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"...we don’t get any calls, which I know everybody always hears. But I’ll give you a stat. Last night, we are playing this old physical team. They are old. I know what happens when you play basketball, old guys foul. [Kevin] Garnett is the dirtiest guy in the league. We are playing Boston last night and they had two fouls the whole first half. We had five times that."

That's Hawks owner Michael Gearon Jr. speaking -- he also claims the media's been unfair to his Hawks, which you can read at the AJC. So yes, not the most unbiased source. Besides, KG may play dirty, but the dirtiest guy in the league? Come on now. Have we all forgotten about David Stern sucker punching the Lakers in December?
