Kevin Garnett Chucks a Ball at Dwight Howard, Headbutts Him Four Minutes into the Game

Kevin Garnett

Dwight Howard is so unlikable it took just four minutes for Kevin Garnett to completely lose it.

During Monday’s Nets-Rockets tilt, Garnett and Howard got physical in the paint. Garnett shoved Howard away and Howard shoved Garnett in the chest which prompted the veteran to chuck a ball at the Rockets big man. The two immediately got into it and KG walked right up to Howard and headbutted him before Howard tried to respond with a poorly thrown “punch.”

Even after they were broken up, KG kept charging toward Howard and screaming what we can only imagine to be words of praise and support.

Garnett was ejected and suspended for one game. Howard was fined $15,000.
