UPDATE: Carmelo Anthony Says He Waited For Kevin Garnett to “Talk”
Did Carmelo Anthony try to meet Kevin Garnett outside after exchanging words on the court?
Based on the video below, it sure looks that way. After the upsetting Boston Celtics win over the New York Knicks in a 102 – 96 victory, Carmelo went to go wait for KG outside of the Celtics bus. The two rival players both got technical fouls after an exchange of harsh words.
UPDATE: Carmelo recently spoke out in regards to the reports that he was waiting to fight KG, stating, “There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man. I felt like we crossed a line, but like I said, we both had 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 was handled.”
He also added, “Nothing happened for me to be suspended. I wanted to talk to KG. I think it was something we both needed to get off our chest and see what really the problem was. No altercations, it was just some words and a conversation that we needed to have.”
