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.

Hey, Nancy, say it by your play on the court.  This is a grown up saying another pro basketball player is "Mean?"  What are you, Lindsay Lohan?  Get a grip, play ball, and shut your pie hole!

"if Noah wasn't such a good rebounder he would not have been drafted"?  Really?  Very insightful.   You know, if Adrian Peterson wasn't such a good runner, he wouldn't have been drafted.  And if Derek Jeter wasn't such a good hitter, he wouldn't have been drafted! LOL
You know, Noah averaged 11 pts, 11 rebounds, 2 assists and a 1.5 last year.  He's averaging 16 pts 15 rebounds 2 assists 1 steal and 2 blocks a game this year while shooting 54% from the field and 77% from the line.  He's a very, very good player.
Bulls fans LOVE Noah.  He goes to work, he leaves it all on the floor, he's a bad ass, like Dennis Rodman.
You're just in love with Garnett.

Kevin Garnett is not ugly. As for Joakim Noah...he is quite ugly. He surly attitude is not attractive. That unkempt and wild hair of his isn't working for him either. He should shave his head and then reinvent himself into a productive and dominant player instead of the flash-in-the-pan cry baby. I have heard of "the Big Dog", "Big Baby" and even "Little Baby" in the NBA. Looks like the NBA now has "the Cry Baby". Perhaps Noah should quit basketball and get into music. Maybe he will find more success. But it is great how he was able to parlay his brief time at Florida into a NBA contract. Aside from what he has done in college in March I find Noah extremely over rated and a gigantic prima donna. The guy is not a superstar yet he thinks that he can "badmouth" some who has the stature and reputation of Kevin Garnett. This is why I feel strongly about sports league allowing players under 24 to compete. Most people under 25 are very immature. They get into fights with fans, bring guns to night clubs while staying out late and they don't listen to what the coaches tell them to do. If Noah wasn't such a good rebounder he would not have been drafted. I feel sorry for Bulls fans. They deserve better than Joakim Noah.

He's mean??? WWhat is this guy a 12 yr old school girl??? The reason he doesn't cut the young players any slack is because KG is old school. In the "old school" you get no respect until you EARN it. In the NBA these kids come in makin big money. Guys like KG keep these kids in check until they get some years under their belts and figure out who they want to be.

Yes the Kettle is black Hawkman lol.  I'm with you.  Noah might be the ugliest guy in the NBA with the ugliest jump shot and he is calling someone ugly...come on man.  Although the rest of what he said was pretty funny.
