No Penalty For Kevin Garnett After Bill Walker Incident
Looks like Kevin Garnett won’t be seeing any punishment for his Christmas Day scuffle with Knicks guard Bill Walker, according to a league source.
It was a heated first game of the season for the Knicks and Celtics and the end result was the Knicks with a 106-104 win. Boston big man Kevin Garnett had an opportunity to tie the game with a buzzer beater but missed the shot, which was contested by Bill Walker.
After the shot missed Walker walked up to Garnett and looked like he had made a comment, after which Garnett put his hands around Walkers throat. The two were separated and the incident was over. It’s now just being chalked up to a “in the heat of the moment”, moment. The two apparently worked things out after the game and all is well. Check out the video of the incident below.
