During last night's Knicks vs. Celtics game, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett battled the entirety of the game, both physically and mentally. Trash talk on the court led to a brief physical altercation on the court which resulted in technical fouls. The rumor is that Kevin Garnett told Melo his wife La La tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios. Honey Nut Cheerios trended on Twitter and the whole ordeal got out of control.
After the game, Melo headed to the locker room to confront Garnett face-to-face, but when he couldn't find the Celtics big man, he went to the team bus to find Garnett.
"I wanted to talk to KG," said Anthony after today's practice. "I think it was something that we both needed to get off our chests and see what really was the problem. It wasn't no altercations, it was just some words and a conversation that we needed to have."
Melo eventually reached Garnett on the phone and eased the situation, but he told reporters why he was so angry about it initially.
"It's certain things that you just don't say to men, another man," said Melo. "I felt that he crossed the line. Like I said, we're both at an understanding right now, we handled it the way we handled it. Nobody needs to know what was said behind closed doors. So that situation is handled."
