frye.jpg Suns forward/center Channing Frye joined the list of Kevin Garnett's public detractors earlier this season after Garnett poked Frye in the midsection during a game on Jan. 28. The two players exchanged words on the court, with Suns coach Alvin Gentry saying he "lost a little respect for Garnett" on a Phoenix radio station later on.

At today's shootaround before the Celtics and Suns face off tonight at TD Garden, Frye expounded on the incident to the Boston Herald.

ďThereís a rule,Ē Frye told the Herald's Dan Duggan. ďThereís certain things you just donít do and he just overstepped that boundary twice. It is what it is. Thereís nothing else I can say about it. What am I going to do, slap him on the hand or tell him donít do that? Thatís just how he plays. Everybody knows that. I think you can look at how many people have complained about him. Itís not like itís just me. I donít take it personal."

Frye later added, "People just arenít afraid of him. It's just not as concealed. I think an elbow here, maybe tripping somebody or grabbing hold of them, that happens and itís just people playing hard. But other stuff is a little different, being a little disrespectful. It is what it is. He plays like that and thatís what he does. Everybody knows it, but itís not like Iím out here thinking what am I supposed to do against KG."
