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.'”
