Carmelo Anthony Suspended for Kevin Garnett Altercation

by at . Comments

The New York Knicks will be without their leader and best player for a showdown against the Indiana Pacers tonight.

Carmelo Anthony has been suspended one game by the NBA for confronting Kevin Garnett on Monday night, following his team's loss to the Boston Celtics.

As depicted in the video above, Anthony took exception to KG reportedly taunting Carmelo's wife, reality star LaLa Vasquez. He waited for Garnett by the visiting team's bus and fiery words were exchanged.

One report alleges Garnett said Vasquez tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios, which sound like a compliment to us.

"There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game," NBA executive vice president basketball operations Stu Jackson said in a statement. "Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday's game and therefore a suspension was warranted."

Anthony hasn't revealed what was said on the court between the players, just that he found KG's trash talk to be inappropriate, something you don't say "to another man."

The stars have reportedly talked by phone since the incident and mostly worked things out.
