Kevin Garnett on Wednesday denied calling Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva "a cancer patient" in a trash-talking rant during the teams' game the night before.

“I am aware there was a major miscommunication regarding something I said on the court last night," Garnett said in a statement from his representatives released by the Celtics. "My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact, ‘You are cancerous to your team and our league.’ I would never be insensitive to the brave struggle that cancer patients endure. I have lost loved ones to this deadly disease and have a family member currently undergoing treatment. I would never say anything that distasteful. The game of life is far bigger than the game of basketball.”

After the Celtics beat the Pistons 109-86 Tuesday night, dropping Detroit to 0-4 and sending the team into turmoil, Villanueva wrote on his Twitter account that Garnett had called him a "cancer patient" during a trash-talking rant. Villanueva has no body hair due to a rare autoimmune disorder known as alopecea areata.

"KG talks alot of crap, he's prob never been in a fight, I would love to get in a ring with him, I will expose him," Charlie V tweeted. "KG called me a cancer patient, I'm pissed because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he's tossing it like it's a joke. I wouldn't even trip about that, but a cancer patient, I know way 2 many people who passed away from it, and I have a special place 4 those."

Moments after Garnett's statement was released Wednesday, Villanueva wrote on Twitter, "
New day, moving forward, Pistons lets get a win tonight." But before the Pistons played the Hawks in Atlanta on Wednesday night, Villanueva was asked about Garnett's denial.

"I know exactly what I heard," Villanueva said, according to the Detroit Free-Press .

Garnett denies calling Villanueva cancer patient

Kind of like his AK47 rant and missles and war talk, he didn't mean AK 47 he meant he would want to have AK47 on his team (Kirelenko) and Missles well missles are a common term for shots right? War... well going to battle, so going to play another team... yeah, oh forgot he mentioned a silencer and an uzi... wait forget that, Garnett just goes on his rants and doesn't think of any consequences... I'm sure T-Wolves fans were defending that one... classless act there by Garnett, but we see it a lot right? Shame they don't send these guys to classes right out of college. Teach them a bit or two of class and dignity....

I'm sure in the heat of the game K.G turned to Villanueva and said "Excuse me, but I believe you are cancerous to your team and our league". And then on the bench he told Big Baby "Please forgive my critical observation but I don't believe you are excerting the required effort needed to win this game. Please make the appropriate adjustments and play accordingly."

And after a call went against him I heard him turn to the ref and say "Mr. Referee, can you please reconsider the judgement you have just passed regarding the previous encounter because I truly believe I wacted withing the permited framework of the current NBA regulations".

That polished denial is the biggest pile of bulls*it I think I've ever heard.  "You are cancerous to the league!"  Yeah, that really sounds like something that a trash-talking a-hole like KG would blurt out in the heat of the moment.  He just made himself look even worse with this blatant lie.  I didn't even think it was that big of a deal, but now I'm pissed that KG would think that anybody would be stupid enough to believe this absurd explanation.

what a dumbass KG is. for someone with such talent, what a waste of a human being.  this guy obviously said Villanueva looks like a cancer patient, but now he's backtracking.  no surprise as to why big baby Davis can't stand the dumbass either.  
let's see how funny cancer is if HE ever gets it...see how much he'll be talking about it then.  he needs to go jump off a bridge.

Garnett denies calling Villanueva 'cancer patient

Thanks KG for clearing that up.  Calling him "cancerous" compared to a "cancer" is the difference between night and day.  I like the Celtics but this moron is too stupid for his own good.  Somebody get the idiot a dictionary and explain to him how dumb he is.  How about shutting your mouth and work on your game, which definitely needs practice????
