Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett was voted the worst (or best, depending on how you look at it) trash-talker in the league by his peers in a poll of 173 NBA players conducted by Sports Illustrated. Garnett won the poll in a landslide, collecting 62 percent of the vote. Kobe Bryant came in at number two with seven percent of the vote.

While Garnett plays a different sport, I wonder how he would hold up against New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott in a trash-talking match. Scott, who told the New York Times in December that he views trash talking as an art or science, is considered by many to be the worst trash talker in the NFL.

With Garnett, though, the SI results are hardly surprising. He talks enough trash that we would love to hire him here as a copywriter at TAUNTR. If only he was as talented at staying on the floor.
