Tyson Chandler Thinks Kevin Garnett Crossed the Line With Carmelo Anthony


Carmelo Anthony was so incensed by something Kevin Garnett said to him on the court Monday night, that he tried to fight him after the game, resulting in a one game suspension from the NBA. Melo’s teammate Tyson Chandler says that KG crossed a line that shouldn’t be crossed in the heat of battle. From ESPN Radio (via SRI): “If he thinks Kevin Garnett crossed the line with Carmelo Anthony: ‘I think it was a little too much in all honesty. I felt like Melo just wanted to have a conversation man-to-man and I can respect that.’ If crossing the line can happen during the course of games considering all the trash-talk: ‘Absolutely. You can definitely cross the line in sports. There are certain things that are said on the court that is basketball chatter and then other things that should always be left off.’ If Garnett is known as a guy that crosses the line too often: ‘I’m not sure. I guess it all depends on who you ask the question to.’ If Anthony was bothered more by losing or the comments made by Garnett: ‘In all honesty I can’t answer that question because I don’t know. I don’t even know what was said because I wasn’t there when it all happened. I know one thing, Melo doesn’t get easily agitated and people don’t get under his skin that easily so obviously whatever was said, it must’ve been something.’”

    ah, so he tried to fight him! Slam knows everything.

    It’s not the first time Kevin Garnett crossed the line. Go look up what he said to Tim Duncan and Charlie Villanueva.

    Melo is soft. Dude’s talk trash on the court all the time. Who cares what he said? You know how you ultimately get him to shut up? Win. Would Melo have been as mad if he had played well and the Knicks won… instead of him stinking up the joint with a 6-26 shooting night and a loss?

    KG: “LALA’S COOCHIE SMELLS LIKE HONEY NUT CHEERIOS”

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    the all caps is hard enough on the eyes. the misquoting is worse tho.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    someday, when you get married, you’ll understand.

  • Redd

    He’s spent 5 years in the same remedial level classes, don’t be so harsh on him. People are such jerks these days.

  • spit hot fiyah

    he’s a habitual line stepper – *Charlie Murphy voice*

  • NBAHOFER

    Theres an unwritten law of “Whats said on the court stays on the court” thats why Celtics camp is denying KG would say something so foul but the truth of the matter is KG is one of the last old school heads left and he talks trash like a mofo and he did n said whatever to get under melos skin to have him have a poor performance and lose the game. But i dont believe KG said that but its not as bad as what he said to TD kg needs another anthony peeler elbow to the face for that. There comes a point where you shouldnt say such things and do such things low blows and family members should be left out the game. Melo let your game do the talking next time.

  • LakeShow

    Myself, I don’t even gotta be married to understand this.
    Don’t talk about family, or significant others, or your getting a fist to the face.

    Pretty simple.

  • Dutch Rich

    looking at the dwindling statistics, it might be more “if” then “when”

  • pposse

    I’m curious to know what kind of man you think Bryan Crawford is. I mean he supposedly told you via twitter about insults another man threw at another man and his wife.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    most people still get married. they just also get divorced sooner and don’t get remarried anymore lol

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    he “supposedly” told me information that everybody else now knows about…?
    .
    he relayed information, just sooner then most anyone else did.
    .
    why would that cause me to change my opinion of him as a man?

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    well i didn’t want to be like, well when you mature, get married, or gain experience around a married man you’ll understand lol

  • Dutch Rich

    “one and done”

  • pposse

    Interesting thats your take and i can dig that. I just feel like that dude should have minded his own business. Ultimately this became a lot bigger of a story than it had to be bc of Carmello’s reaction, but all of these inside reporters just threw logs on the fire. I think thats a little irresponsbile on his part, either that or he thought KG’s insult was more funny than insensitve .

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i asked him to specifically tell me what he heard. he didn’t just say, “hey guess what Melo said”

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Sanchez

    what did he tell tim?

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Sanchez

    agreed

  • Dymez

    From ESPN Radio (via SRI): “If he thinks Kevin Garnett crossed the line with Carmelo Anthony:

    don’t know. I don’t even know what was said because I wasn’t there when

    -I found that funny.

    “Happy Mother’s Day, MotherF*cker” —– right after Tim Duncan’s mom passed away.

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Sanchez

    :-<

  • Fitzy

    false. Tim Duncan’s mother passed away a day before he turned 14. He simply said it on mother’s day knowing his mother had previously passed away. Not condoning it, but lets not confuse the facts.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    ahh i was not aware of that. thanks for the correction.

  • RipCity

    he also called Charlie V a cancer patient

  • http://www.facebook.com/sean.bankston Sean Bankston

    If you’re that mentally weak that false verbal taunts about your significant other are enough to rile you up… then maybe KG was smart in what he did. It worked. They won. Melo played terrible and ended up getting suspended.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    someday, you’ll understand.

  • Reed

    Obviously Melo knows how she tastes like and that’s why he lost it! “How can that $%*** know dat isn???” … I’d get maaaaad too! lol

  • bigjay

    its basketball be tougher than who cares what he said melo stop crying and hoop…..KG got that chi town hoop mentality..if you not form chic go u won’t understand we tough….

  • LakeShow

    Or…. not.

  • Mars

    Exactly what I was thinking lol…

  • zogs19994

    YOU HAVE OVER 2500 COMMENTS….AND THEIR ALL PARAGRAPHS!!!
    -
    GET A LIFE SON AHAHA

  • zogs19994

    STOP REPLYING TO MY COMMENTS….I DON’T CARE.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Lol! I am also the only one of us whose comments were updated to include the ones before the comment system changed. But good one, criticize my use of paragraphs with bad English. “Their” is a good way to make me look bad.

    According to Doc, it wasn’t even about his wife.

  • zogs19994

    TOO LONG…DONT CARE
    -
    BTW: THAT WAS LIKE A 30 SECOND RESPONSE YOU LOSER

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    According to Doc, KG has never crossed the line while he’s been his coach. Which is a blatant lie. Charlie Villanueva could clear that up if you are confused. So believe him if you want

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Lol 2 sentences is too long? School must have been rough

  • Redd

    First of all, I was trying to have your back. Second of all, if you didn’t care you wouldn’t reply to me genius.

  • Redd

    That took you 30 seconds to read? Man I’m trying to have your back but you’re making it hard son.

  • Nope

    i think it’s hilarious that a professional athlete can let words affect him like that. melo gets 20 mil/year to focus in and play basketball. just focus. plain and simple. kg knows what he is doing. he is the type to get the opposing team’s best player to throw a right cross at him without fighting back so that his team gets an advantage. it’s a mental edge. if someone slings hate at me, my lady, my folks.. anyone, doesn’t bother me. just words bro, just words.

  • LobCity

    Old school my a**. All bark, no bite! He would have been laid out in the old school NBA. Just listen to SLAM radio’s interview with Charles Oakley.

  • http://www.facebook.com/qcollingwood Interdico Scriptor

    Thank f**k u said that. I totally agree. “just words bro, just words” is totally the case. KG is the master of that and it WORKED. Good to know that ya’ll can still be PSYCHED on the court… I’ma keep it up.

  • kwamepooh

    tim should just have reminded him of malik sealy and garnett would have known that he crossed the line

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003246310246 Jason Carter

    ‘In all honesty I can’t answer that question because
    I don’t know. I don’t even know what was said because I wasn’t there
    when it all happened”>>> Why would you say that KG crossed the line if you have no clue what was said?…Assumptions, like Doc said, Melo did a good job of pushing this on KG to the media based off his REP just to get the heat off of his back for showing up at the bus.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003246310246 Jason Carter

    nah a secure married man wouldnt let that stuff bother him.words?? really??. melo is INSECURE.

  • knicks4eva

    If u think u can take harsh words from anybody. Then fck yo mama and she smells like honey nut cherrios… expired one. Now take that like a man and shut up.

  • knicks4eva

    Its easy to say that coz you are just a fan. Watching the game. But if someome disrespect your family in front of your face. A normal person will react to it no matter how much your getting paid. Unless of course its you. Mr goody goody that would probably just take it. Oh btw, yo momma taste like honey nut cherrios.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Nope

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003246310246 Jason Carter

    well thats subjective… i know I wouldnt get mad.. ill tell him the same about his wife..and go down the other end a drain a couple 3s.. Thats how you retaliate!

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    no, what is subjective is how each individual man reacts when his wife is disrespected. saying it has nothing to do with insecurity is not.
    .
    and what does what you would do after insulting someone’s wife matter? that is completely irrelevant.
    .
    judging someone for getting defensive about their family says more about you, then it does about the person who got defensive. i hope you realize that.
    .
    you have no right to judge any other man for how they react about their family. just like nobody has a right to judge you if you do, or don’t, do the same thing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003246310246 Jason Carter

    Agreed only the weak would get caught up in that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003246310246 Jason Carter

    well thats subjective, I know i wouldnt get mad. if I was Melo i would tell him the same about his wife and go down the court and drain a couple 3s..Now Thats how you retaliate!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003246310246 Jason Carter

    Nah NBK, noones judging, but what i DID do is phsyco-analyze this clown.. all i said was that he sounds insecure.. i think over-analyzing what I said. Hes not the only one KG talks trash too.. he needs to grow a set of balls..just my opinion bro.. im cut from a different type of cloth.

  • Allenp

    One of the greatest comedic lines of all time.

  • Allenp

    Every man is different. And people don’t know what was said. What if someone talked about molesting your babies, or doing something extremely disrespectful to your wife? To me, you need to address that promptly.

  • Allenp

    I’m going to judge you. If I see a man openly disrespect your wife or children and you just keep hooping, I’m going to think you’re a punk, or you don’t love them. Melo didn’t start throwing fists, he just let KG know that some stuff wasn’t going to be tolerated. Perfectly reasonable.

  • allenp

    glad you cleared that up so I didn’t have too.

  • Max

    LOL

  • Max

    This is great.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    it took me less then 30 seconds to type that. it took you more than 30 seconds to read it?
    .
    ahahahahahahahaha

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    first of all, you don’t know what Psycho-Analyze means, or how it is spelled.

    .

    you judged him. you can make up a different word for it if you want, but what you did is judging.

    .

    “nah a secure married man wouldnt let that stuff bother him.words?? really??. melo is INSECURE.” – you don’t know him. You have never actually psycho-analyzed him, you just judged him as a married man based on his actions that you viewed on a TV.

    .
    again, it’s a judgement.
    .
    and the type of cloth you were cut from is called inexperience.

    After this comment,Tyson Chandler went home and got him self a big bowl of Honey
    Nut Cheerios. He also wants to know how La La taste like.

  • Gregory Davis

    KG is not untouchable, Trash Talking may be his MO, But there is always the first time, whether on the Court or in the Street, at a Club, Concert, Dinner Event, You can say the wrong thing and Get Hurt!. It just Depend on the Person, Time, and Place. So to each is own if he continues this Nonsense to get others upset or try to take them out of their character. There is always consequences in return. So KG Watch Your Back!Lol

  • hab

    Not much better.

  • hollis

    you guys are in extreme denial if you think there is nothing some one can say about the mother of your children IN FRONT OF YOUR COWORKERS AND FRIENDS that wont have you wanting to whoop ass on the spot!
