Kevin Garnett Once Refused To Do An Interview With Dwight Howard
Kevin Garnett hasn’t been shy on his feelings towards Dwight Howard these days. Just over the summer he called Howard a clown, turns out Garnett’s loathing for the fellow Super Star player goes deeper.

We had one (All-Star weekend interview) scheduled two years ago, Kevin Garnett with Dwight Howard. And it was set up through the NBA and I’m sitting there with Dwight Howard but no KG.
I go back in the locker room and KG’s just sitting in his chair.
Doc Rivers (who was coaching the team at the time) said, “KG, are you supposed to do an interview with Craig Sager?”
KG said, “Yeah, but I’m not doing it with Dwight Howard standing there.”
Then he obviously threw out some profanity and said there’s no way he’s going to stand there next to Dwight Howard to do an interview.
So should we bump Dwight up higher than Carmelo and Charlie Villanueva for the people he seems to just not like? Leave it up to KG to tell em how he really feels.
