by January 08, 2013


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.”
