Kevin Garnett May Have Used The Word Cancer, But He Totally Didn't Mean It That Way

Garnett issued a statement in response to Charlie Villanueva's assertion that KG told him he looked like a cancer patient. Actually: "My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact 'You are cancerous to your team and our league.'"

See, that's much better. The full statement:

I am aware there was a major miscommunication regarding something I said on the court last night. My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact ‘You are cancerous to your team and our league.' I would never be insensitive to the brave struggle that cancer patients endure. I have lost loved ones to this deadly disease and have a family member currently undergoing treatment. I would never say anything that distasteful. The game of life is far bigger than the game of basketball."
