Bucks’ Jennings: Trash talk is ‘nobody’s business’

Second-year Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings, a flashy player known as much for his brashness as his immense game, said that he likely would have refrained from putting any in-game trash talk on his Twitter page, as Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva did hours after the Celtics’ win Tuesday night against the Pistons.

Villanueva accused Kevin Garnett of calling him a “cancer patient,” a statement Garnett denied.

“Personally, I don’t think I would have said anything to the media about (trash talk),” he said before the Bucks took on the Celtics. “I know last year me and KG got into it, but I wasn’t going to tweet about it and tell you what he said because that’s nobody’s business.”

Jennings got into exchanges with Garnett and Glen Davis last season during the four heated matchups between the teams.

“Out there on the court between the lines is what’s said,” Jennings said. “If I was really that mad, then I would have did what I would have did right then and there instead of putting it out there. Who knows what was said? I wasn’t there, but if I’m that mad and to put it on Twitter and I was ready to fight, then I would have did it right there.”
