New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony lost his cool after Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett took trash-talking to another level by telling him his wife, La La Anthony, “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios,” a dig at Anthony who is estranged from his “sweet” wife.
The two players nearly came to blows Monday night over the comment during an Eastern Conference game at Madison Square Garden, Black Sports Online reports. Both men had to be separated on the court and were given technical fouls. What made the matter worst was that the Knicks lost 102-96.
UPDATED: Carmelo Anthony was suspended for one game for confronting Kevin Garnett in the tunnel. He will lose about $176,000 as part of the penalty, per NBA rules.
