Kevin Garnett is one of the best trash talkers the NBA has ever seen. On a nightly basis, he would get under the skin of his opponents with a constant barrage of abuse and taunting.
'The Big Ticket' called it a day after 21 years on Friday and, as media days take place up and down the United States of America, players around the league have been speaking about their KG experience.
Oklahoma City Thunder's New Zealander Steven Adams only experienced Garnett in his latter years, but still saw the effect he could have on players, such as Serge Ibaka.
The 15-time All-Star never really targeted Adams though, and the big man told reporters it's because he once pulled the 'English card', despite English being the common tongue in his home nation.
The Kiwi center said: "He's got this presence about him that's intimidating, and he doesn't talk to me at all.
"I played the 'English card' one time. He something and I was just like 'no English. No English mate, sorry.' He kind of just left me alone, which is brilliant.
"The way he just talks to everyone, it's not so much his trash talk, obviously he's phenomenal at it, but it's more so how he runs a team and how everyone in the team kind of picks up off his energy."
