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.

And Joakim should know about "being UGLY" 

How about he just worries about helping the Bulls win instead of saying stupid shit that no one believes.  Never liked the guy and this certainly doesn't help.  I will say this though, he does play tough...But what was the point in saying that about KG?  Everyone already has said pretty much all there is to say about him.

I love it.  I like seeing when teams don't like each other.  We need more rivalries in the NBA.  Granted, Chicago-Boston is not a rivalry now since Boston has made two finals in the past three years and the Bulls haven't made it out of the first round.  But hopefully when Boozer gets healthy, I would love to see Boston again in the playoffs.

THIS THREAD IS HILARIOUS. Us Bulls fans love Noah so much because he gets idiotic fans like many of them here to show their stupidity. The Dude is clearly joking around for most of this.

As for "proving it on the court". Well, he leads the league in rebounds and double doubles. If thats not enough for you then cry me a river. Id bet a lot of money the Celtics would trade Garnett for Noah for just this year.

KG is a dick, and has been for the longest time. While in Minnesota, he would come out later after all the players and not sign any autographs at the game I went to. And, he always is talking sh!t to Pau Gasol, who owned him in the finals. Haha!

CBS Sportline is Exampe of Irresponsible Media!!!

I didn't read this article, I just noticed the headline/title. CBS, what are you doing? Don't give coverage to stuff like this. All you're doing is adding fuel to a fire. You guys are so irresponsible. The fact that you gave coverage to this story, and your irresponsibility with other similar stories... I'm done visiting your site. I'll get my NBA news elsewhere.
