Kevin Garnett was a terrific basketball player, one of the best power forwards in the history of the game, but there was another facet of his game that made him more famous than his buckets, his trash-talk game. Garnett was a professional on that matter, sometimes crossing the line, but he always had something to tell to his rivals.

When social media arrived, that was the best thing that ever happened to KG. He took to Twitter to call out his rivals and the things he said a couple of years ago were pure gold. Garnett liked to go after Carmelo Anthony, bringing up some serious matters.

KG had material for everybody. Nobody was safe when this guy opened that Twitter app.

Even Ray Allen received something from Garnett after he left the Boston Celtics to join the Miami Heat.

KG was really great on the court, but his trash talk game was something incredible. He did say some questionable things, but there is no doubt that you get entertained by him every time you see him going after his rivals. One of the best trash talkers ever, Kevin Garnett.
