Carmelo Anthony -vs- Kevin Garnett Fight - Double Technicals - Postgame Confrontation

Round 1: Carmelo Anthony -vs- Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett & Carmelo Anthony are whistled for a double-technical after exchanging words during the Celtics’ win in Madison Square Garden on Monday night, January 7th, 2013

SYNOPSIS: Carmelo Anthony was apparently angry about Kevin Garnett's choice-of-words during a fourth-quarter altercation in the Knicks -vs- Celtics game on Monday, January 7th, 2013.

Word thru the grapevine was that the once dominant defensive force known as KG; who has become one of the NBA's dirtiest players since his physical skills began eroding, said Carmelo Anthony's wife Lala Vasquez, 'Taste like Honey Nut Cheerios'

[Note: It may seem like all fun n' games but word on the "L" is that it is a very derogatory term amoungst urban folks.]

“It’s something you just don’t say to men, another man,” Anthony said. “I felt like we crossed the line. I lost my composure. It was just out of character,” he added. “I allowed some negativity to come into my circle.”

Kevin Garnett's solidifies his reputation as the One of the NBA's Dirtiest Players

Kevin Garnett has a history of taking trash talking to a next level — a classless level...KG was once accused of telling Charlie Villanueva he looked like a cancer patient, he also called Joakim Noah a “nobody,” and appeared to willfully hit Channing Frye in the groin area — all in the same season — and so, this seems like the run-of-the-mill for antics for Garnett.

Charlie Villanueva
Please note, Villanueva has a skin disease known as alopecia universalis; a medical condition that causes hair-loss on the entire body — although it does make him bald;  resembling a chemo-therapy patient, there should be no place for that in sports.

“How many people died from cancer,” Villanueva said, “and he’s tossing it like it’s a joke."

Please also note, Noah grew-up rockin' a Garnett jersey along w/ a Garnett poster plastered on his wall. But now, he dislikes Garnett. “I talk a lot of trash out there, but c’mon,” Joakim Noah told Sports Illustrated last year. “Be a little sensitive.”

Carmelo Anthony was suspended one game by the NBA on Wednesday for attempting to confront Kevin Garnett after the New York Knicks' loss to Boston on Monday. Anthony, who was still angry & infuriated about Garnett's antics, went toward the Celtics' locker room after the game and later waited for Garnett outside Boston's team bus.

Maybe KG & Melo should just hug & make-up?

Anthony didn't believe he would be suspended because he said he was just looking to talk to Garnett, not fight but Stu Jackson — NBA executive Vice President of Operations ruled otherwise.

"There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game," Jackson said in a statement. "Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday's game and therefore a suspension was warranted."

Anthony will miss the Knicks' nationally televised game at Indiana on Thursday and lose about $176,700 of his $19.4 million salary... be continued.
