There are probably some TNT executives in a boardroom somewhere either cursing each other out for having put Kevin Garnett on TV, or patting each other on the proverbial back.

Because after the former NBA superstar cursed again on a live broadcast of Inside the NBA Thursday night, the network will likely either field some displeasure from sponsors or watch their ratings swell as a result.

Either way, TNT must have known what it was getting into by offering Garnett his own segment on Inside the NBA. It’s called Area 21 and it shuns the traditional former player in a suit sitting behind a desk model in favor of a much more relaxed studio setting. We’ll call it Garnett hanging out in a man cave with guests usually made up of former players.

And last night, the atmosphere was even more relaxed, with Area 21 playing host to a party that featured Shaq as the DJ and scores of young women gyrating on the studio’s makeshift dance floor. When one of them poured a drink on some dude’s head, Garnett let loose with the language.

Garnett was apparently also prompted to belt out a choice word when he got a neck tattoo during the show.

KG was always known for straight talkin’ during his playing days, and apparently not much has changed.
