When Carmelo Anthony's face turned the color of a hot tomato after an altercation with Kevin Garnett during yesterdays game between the Knicks and the Celtics, we all knew that it was about to go the **** down in Madison Square Garden!!
UPDATE: It has been confirmed that Carmelo and his wife LaLa Anthony are having marital problems, which affected Carmelo's frustration.
Word around town was that Garnett told Carmelo that his wife "tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios" during the game. We don't know how many men would not immediately snap on someone after hearing that but Carmelo handled those words with class as he decided not to rip Garnett's head off in front of 20,000 people in attendance. Instead, Carmelo immediately ran to the locker room entrance of the Boston Celtics as soon as the game was over looking for a man-to-man with KG. When Melo couldn't find KG at the scene, he soon made his way to the Celtics bus where he was sure to meet Kevin.
Check out the video below:
You have to be a real bum to call out another mans wife during battle and a real coward to not back up your words. Kevin Garnett is known for being a snake but this altercation was his all-time low in our opinion.
Carmelo said he's "at an understanding" with Kevin Garnett right now.
"There are certain things you just don't say to men, another man, so I felt that he crossed the line," Anthony said.
