Carmelo Anthony Says He Wanted to Talk to Kevin Garnett Not Fight After the Game

New York Knicks superstar forward Carmelo Anthony created quite a stir last night as he tried to go after Kevin Garnett in the Boston Celtics’ locker room, and by waiting for the Boston Celtics forward outside the team bus. Melo claims that he just wanted to chat with KG, and that the two have since reached an understanding. From the AP: “Carmelo Anthony says he lost his cool after Kevin Garnett said things to him that he feels shouldn’t be said to ‘another man.’ Anthony says he sought out Garnett after the Knicks’ loss to Boston on Monday night so they could discuss it. He would not elaborate on what was said. Anthony went toward the Celtics’ locker room and waited for Garnett outside the team bus. He says they talked and sorted out the matter. [...] The NBA is investigating and has video evidence. It could decide to penalize Anthony, who says he shouldn’t be suspended.”

    Screw that, if it were me I’d say damn right I was looking to fight no matter if I would’ve won or loss. You don’t talk about a man’s wife like that.

    KG has tasted LaLa’s p***y….

    this is a wonderful comment.

    good. this is getting blown out of proportion. KG definitely crossed the line. — after talking to many people, i agree Melo should not have reacted (although i don’t blame him for it) – so, this is a, “KG crossed the line, and he should know that” situation. and that’s exactly what it has become.

  • Dymez

    The winner of this was LaLa. Babygirl tastes like honey-nut, and now everybody knows it.

    Or Anthony Peeler decking him. Or Lamarcus Alridge smacking him, etc. Basically, if you fight back, KG will just put his hands up.

    If Melo did go to talk to him about it man to man and aired it out that this type of trash talk is not cool, I respect him for it. Good move on his part.

  • ThaWindy

    Hmmm….I would’ve guessed Fruit Loops.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    yeah, talking after the fact was definitely the best decision available.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    Just can’t talk about a man’s wife. Period. I’m glad they talked and
    ironed it out. Getting into a guy’s head is one thing. Family members
    should be off limits. Any real man would want to at least have a man to
    man conversation as Melo says he did. I respect him for standing up for
    himself and his wife/mother of his son. If this was a dude like Stephen Jackson, this would have probably been a different situation.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    He actually looks kind of calm in the video of him waiting for KG. Calmer than he was during the game.

  • shockexchange

    Danny Ferry got a $15k fine for tellin’ “what he done seen or heard.” What will KG’s fine be?

  • Clos1881

    How do you know what Garnett said ?

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    All-Star Games, mutual friends. I think both KG and Melo spend time in LA during the summer. So they’ve crossed paths more than enough to get each other’s phone numbers.

  • bike

    You have to figure that LaLa must really smell like Honey Nut Cheerios for Melo to go off like that. Surely KG just didn’t pull that out of thin air. There has to be something to it. Now imagine the talk that will occur on b-ball sites, late night comedy shows, and locker rooms everywhere about women smelling like breakfast cereals. Melo’s home life will be sheer hell. KGs simply a genius at this stuff.

    multiple people told me.

  • Max

    KG doesn’t dare to get it op with Captain Jack!

  • roscoe

    good points.

  • roscoe

    idk if I agree.

    the best thing to do is to have ignored kg, but that is easier said then done.

    walking away is cool in my book and i would think more of melo if he had.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    I meant talking, however they did it. Not waiting outside the locker room specifically. But telling him its crossing the line privately is the least of what I was have done so I think that’s probably the best solution.

  • roscoe

    i hear you nbk… you’re a reasonably person.

    i don’t think anyone should assume melo is a bad guy for defending his lady which we both agree about.

    man, kg opened a big can of worms.

  • MikeC.

    People can say wild mess about me, and that’s just part of trash talk. People that have never met my wife can talk junk. It’s like a Yo Mama joke. Laugh it off. A man that has met my wife, and makes the foolish choice to disrespect her is in for a rearrangement of their facial organization.

  • fruizm

    just cereals…

    Exactly my sentiments. You don’t know me or my family, I’m not gonna get worked up over what you say about the because I know its not true.

  • http://twitter.com/_DFrance DFrance

    Unless Melo posts here, I think we can at least all agree that this photo is hilarious.
