ESPN reports that Charlie Villanueva tweeted that “KG called me a cancer patient, I’m pissed because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he’s tossing it like it’s a joke.”
Of course, as with all truly hilarious jokes, both KG and Charlie V are correct. It is an hilarious (because it’s true) and terribly offensive joke. From now on KG, how about you go with Powder instead? People THINK cancer patient, but it’s not directly using the horrifying afflictions of others to get inside a guy’s head – a guy you don’t particularly need an edge against.
