Kevin Garnett welcomed Bobby Portis to NBA with veteran trash talk
Kevin Garnett is as good a trash talker as there is in the NBA right now. He’s one of the games’ legendary talkers.
And he welcomed Bulls rookie Bobby Portis to the NBA in his own special way during Saturday’s Chicago/Minnesota preseason game. From Vincent Goodwill of CSNChicago.com.
Bobby Portis is fully initiated into the NBA: Kevin Garnett was verbally giving him the business over the weekend. "Words I can't repeat."— Vincent Goodwill (@VinceGoodwill) October 13, 2015
Portis on KG: "He didn't say nothing about no Honey Nut Cheerios. He (said), "Grown man business right here, boy. I'm 40 and you're 20."— Vincent Goodwill (@VinceGoodwill) October 13, 2015
Beautiful use of the Honey Nut Cheerios reference.
Hoiberg was a teammate of KG’s back in Minnesota from 2003-2005. Hoiberg did nothing but praise Garnett after the game. He’s probably good with KG pushing Portis.
Watch out for Portis this season, he’s going to show he shouldn’t have fallen so far down the board.
