Kenyon Martin recently reflected on the good ole days in the NBA when players could play with a high level of physicality, unlike in today’s game.

As Martin made his case for enforcers, the former New Jersey Nets power forward also mentioned how there were some players who were fake tough on the floor — calling out Kevin Garnett in the process.

“There were some guys like that back when I played, too. Kevin Garnett was a porch puppy — a miniature chihuahua in a Dobermann’s body. I told him to his face, ‘You’re a porch puppy. All you do is bark.’ He never wanted smoke from me,” Martin wrote for BasketballNews.com. “I told him straight up, ‘You better take your [expletive] back to your huddle before I get mad.’ Dahntay Jones heard it; you can ask him.”

Garnett caught wind of what Martin said, along with all the talk that followed.

The hall of fame big man let everyone know on Instagram that all is well between him and Martin, per Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com:

“Real bro’s, real love. Stop it internet. Ya’ll stop it!”
