Why does Joakim Noah hate KG so much?

This article was originally published for CelticsLife.com
It seems that the Celtics and Bulls don't even have to be facing each other to inspire Chicago Center, Joakim Noah, to start bashing Kevin Garnett.

During last year's playoffs KG was suspended for throwing an elbow at Miami's Quentin Richardson. Despite having nothing to do with the incident, Noah took a shot at him:

"It's unbelievable. He's a dirty player. It's one thing to be competitive and compete. But don't be a dirty player, man."

Now, Noah is unleashing even more unprovoked hatred for KG. In a report on ESPNChicago.com, Noah is quoted on the Waddle & Silvy show as saying, "He's a very mean guy...Where's the love? None at all. Ugly, too".

So why is it that Joakim Noah has all of this hatred for Kevin Garnett? Apparently, he hurt Noah's feelings.

Noah said what makes the relationship difficult is how big a fan he was of Garnett before entering the NBA in 2007.

"I had his poster in my room," Noah said. "I used to wear his jersey. And the truth is my rookie year, I was in admiration of this guy, and he kind of shut me down.

"And he was very mean to me my rookie year. And he's only mean to the young guys and the [European players], for some reason. I don't know why, but that's who he doesn't like. He's not nice. I talk a lot of trash out there, but c'mon, be a little sensitive. Be sweet."

Get over it, Joakim.
