It was only a matter of time before it happened. Honestly, I can't believe it took this long.

Joakim Noah isn't shy with his words and he isn't shy about talking about who he likes and doesn't. It's completely refreshing in an era where guys play with each other in AAU and come in to the league buddies. Noah isn't about any of that. He's about business on the basketball court and he's not holding anything back off it. So when it came to Kevin Garnett, Noah had some thoughts.

“Kevin Garnett will not — will not — get a Christmas gift from me,” Noah said with a tinge of humor Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I don’t like him….”

“He’s a very mean guy,” Noah said Wednesday. “Where’s the love? None at all. Ugly, too….”

“I had his poster in my room,” Noah said. “I used to wear his jersey. And the truth is my rookie year, I was in admiration of this guy, and he kind of shut me down.

“And he was very mean to me my rookie year. And he’s only mean to the young guys and the [European players], for some reason. I don’t know why, but that’s who he doesn’t like. He’s not nice. I talk a lot of trash out there, but c’mon, be a little sensitive. Be sweet.”

You hear that KG? Just be sweet man.

But here's what Noah called Garnett: Mean and ugly. Not a great combination. And I'm sure after the pounding Garnett has taken the past few weeks, he's not going to get any sweeter for Noah next time they meet.

Altered Garnett's intelligence? I never knew he had any intelligence in the first place. Garnett is world class punk. If he feels threaten in any way he runs is mouth until his own teammates tell him to back off.

say what you want...but garnett is dirty...thers video evidence of his fag like elbow into noahs stomach after a timeout was called..which of course garnett denied....apparently not going to college altered garnetts intelligence..since it was recorded...garnett is a moron, and now thats hes older...hes resorted to being a thug, however he would never take on an actual fight....i kinda wish theyd put him in the ring with villeneuva just to see how funny it would be....keep it classy kg....keep it classy.

I like how the media wants to use this as ammo to keep bashing Kevin Garnett. "See look, even Noah thinks he's mean and ugly." Just another non-story wasting our time. Leave it on the court.

He was JOKING.  He's on a Chicago sports radio talk show goofing around with a bunch of ex-jocks having a good time.  You all take yourselves too seriously.  Besides, Noah's a hard-nosed, leave it all on the floor, beast of a player.  We love him in Chicago.  Too bad for the rest of the league.

Joakim Noah calling KG Ugly- now that's what I call "calling the kettle black"... I mean white... I mean hispanic... I mean asian... I mean Eastern European.  Oh well, you get the point.  It's hard being polically correct these days!

Ugly calling Ugly?? I'm just sayin...

You have to love what Noah has brought to the league. We need more players with that passion, that inner fire. Hey this guy even called out Lebron before the rest of the world called him out. When you go back and watch Lebron's antics and showboating in the face of losing opponents he had what Noah dished out coming for a long time. Interesting that it was a young player who called him out.  Maybe Noah is a visionary :0).
