Celtics Coach Doc Rivers is insisting that Kevin Garnett did not talk trash about Carmelo Anthony's wife La La. Speaking to Boston sports radio station WEEI, Rivers said "Well, No. 1, I know what's been reported did not happen. I know that as a fact."
Doc continued talking about the situation, claiming that Carmelo deflected attention back to Garnett to keep the heat off himself.
"Guys, you know how this works," Rivers said. "A guy does something crazy like Carmelo did, and the way to get out of trouble is to say, 'Well, he said this.' It happens all the time, and what bugs me about this whole thing is this is not a Kevin Garnett issue. And it was made into one, and it shouldn't have been made into one."
Rivers also spoke about trash talking on the court in general, and claims that Garnett knows where to draw the line.
"Out there at times, you hear some crazy stuff. But when it gets racial or personal to family, then that crosses the line. (Garnett) does (know where the line is). He does. I will say that. I've never heard him cross the line. And usually when he talks about guys, it's usually about their game or their team or what he thinks if the guy's a winner or loser."
