With all the fighting going on (and basketball season JUST barely starting up), the NBA has become REAL lately!
People have been wondering about the latest high-profile altercation between b-ball stars Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett, which started at a Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks matchup on Monday night, and spilled over off court.
Anthony was spotted waiting outside the Boston Celtics’ dressing room AND their team bus for another crack at Garnett, and got his wish outside of the Celtics’ team bus. HipHollywood has obtained a video of that altercation:
Garnett (a NOTORIOUS trash talker) found the right one this time! The taunts he made to Anthony during their game led to an argument that resulted in double technical fouls for both players.
As for what Garnett said that set it all off in the first place – Garnett’s original taunt to Anthony is unconfirmed, but BSO reported that the trash-talker may have told Anthony that “LaLa (Anthony’s wife) tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Those are fighting words!
Thankfully the situation has settled down now. Anthony confirmed as much when he told reporters:
There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man…We both have an understanding right now … that situation was handled.”
