Kevin Garnett is known for running his mouth during games, but he may have taken it too far last night.

Following Detroit’s 109-86 loss to Boston last night, Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva claimed that the Celtics’ Garnett had called him a cancer patient on the court.

“KG called me a cancer patient,” Villanueva posted on his Twitter account. “I'm pissed because, [you] know how many people died from cancer, and he's tossing it like it's a joke.”

While Villanueva does not have cancer, he does have an auto-immune skin disease called alopecia universalis, which is not life-threatening, but does cause the person to lose hair on their scalp and body.

Still, Garnett’s alleged cancer comments hit home for Villanueva.

“I wouldn't even trip about that, but a cancer patient, I know way [too] many people who passed away from it,” he Tweeted, “I have a special place [for] those” people.

Garnett has not said whether or not he made the comments. Nevertheless, Villanueva made it clear he was not pleased.

“KG talks alot of crap, he's [probably] never been in a fight, I would love to get in a ring with him, I will expose him.”
