Iman Shumpert tried to posterize Kevin Garnett in today’s Knicks-Celtics game when he threw down a powerful dunk in the third quarter. Garnett quickly got out of the way, allowing Shumpert to do what KG himself loves to do: dunk and scream. Thus, this dunk was really only worth one point, as Shumpert drew a technical foul for his outburst.
The irony drawing a T for yelling in Kevin Garnett’s face was apparently lost on the official. If screaming in someone’s face is all it takes to get a technical, then KG has been putting a hurt on ESPN sideline reporters for years.
