Call me crazy, but given the current state of the world, doesn’t the following sound a bit funny coming out of the mouth of the current NBA MVP regarding his upcoming Game 7 on Wednesday:

“It’s Game 7, man. That’s it. It’s for all the marbles. Sitting in the house, I’m loadin’ up the pump. I’m loadin’ up the Uzi. I got a couple M-16s, a couple 9s. I got a couple joints with some silencers on them. I’m just loading clips, a couple grenades. I got a missile launcher with a couple of missiles. I’m ready for war.”

kevin_garnett_lakers_2Shouldn’t there be a moratorium on “war” quotes by athletes and the sports media when the country is actually at war? Will anyone call KG out over his over the top comments? Am I over reacting? Can we somehow pin the rash of defections from the USA Olympic Basketball Team on Dubya?
Keep in mind said MVP won’t be representing his country in the Olympics this summer in Athens (although it should be pointed out, he did in the last Olympiad).
Methinks the TWolves are having a hard time dealing with the pressure that seems to mount by the game as they advance farther than the franchise has ever been in the NBA Playoffs. Both of their playoff series this season have been filled with trash talking, ill will and near brawls. The big news from Game 6 was the altercation between KG and his former team mate Anthony Peeler, which resulted in Peeler’s two game suspension.
The TWolves franchise has never played in a Game 7 and the Kings are 0-3 in playoff basketball’s biggest spectacle. Who will step up on Wednesday?
