According to his peers, Kevin Garnett is the worst trash-talker in the NBA.

And it isn't close.

Garnett received 62 percent of the vote in a Sports Illustrated poll of 173 league players who were asked to name the worst trash talker in the league. The second-place finisher -- the Lakers' Kobe Bryant -- had 7 percent.

Garnett, however, isn't the only loudmouth on the Celts if the league's players are to be believed. Paul Pierce was third in the voting with 5 percent and Rasheed Wallace tied for fourth with 3 percent, giving Boston three of the top five trash-talkers in the league.

Not a big surprise and not necessarily a bad thing. I seem to recall Larry Bird and Michael Jordan being up there on the trash talking lists. Two things I just noticed about this picture are Scal's mean mug and KG's clenched fist. No wonder Gordon didn't say anything back.

    A lot of that trash talk is probably to himself! The guy is nuts and my favorite player in the NBA since Larry Legend.
