KG finally talked shit to the wrong person, Melo was about that life?
Carmelo Anthony waited for Kevin Garnett at team bus, locker room after on-court incident (VIDEO)
The NBA obviously frowns on on-court fights and altercations, and in many cases they suspend players for it. But the league reserves a special kind of disapproval for incidents that spill over from the court and into other basketball-associated areas. The idea — usually a good one — is that players should know how to control themselves away from the intensity of competition. That's especially true of stars, the guys who are supposed to represent the league to casual fans and the rest of the world.
So Carmelo Anthony can probably expect a suspension pretty soon. With nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of the Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden, Garnett and Anthony got into a shouting match on the court after a particularly physical possession. Both players were given technical fouls and separated by teammates. It was a heated argument but certainly not the sort of play that earns severe punishment.
However, that was only the start of the night's activities. After the game, reports surfaced that Anthony waited outside the Celtics' locker room after the game and got into another (non-physical) altercation with Garnett. That story has not yet been confirmed. What we do know for sure, though, is that Melo also waited for KG outside the Celtics' bus, because CSNNE.com captured video of it. Watch the video above (via The Point Forward).
