Kenyon Martin is snapping back at former coach George Karl.

Martin didn't take too kindly to Martin's written words, and he let Twitter know it Thursday afternoon.

Karl also bashed J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony in his book. He said the those players and Martin were like “the spoiled brats you see in junior golf and junior tennis."
