Court feud

Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett was asked about his recent on-and off-court dispute with Detroit Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva during an interview on WEEI 850-AM in Boston.

“Dude knew what I said to him,” Garnett said.

“I’m not going to get back into it and bring it up because, you know what, I’m not speaking to nobodies these days.”
