In a new video obtained exclusively by TMZ, New York Knicks Star forward Carmelo Anthony can be seen confronting Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett after a heated game between the two teams at Madison Square Garden.
In the video, taken by an unidentified onlooker, the two stars can be seen exchanging words in front of the Celtics team bus inside MSG. The verbal confrontation came shortly after things got physical between the two NBA superstars on the court.
According to multiple news outlets, Kevin Garnett allegedly told Carmelo Anthony that LaLa Vasquez, Anthony’s wife, “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios” during Monday night’s Knicks-Celtics game.
While neither camp has commented on exactly what was said on the court Monday night, Anthony did eventually speak to reporters saying, it all started when Garnett said some things that “crossed a line.”
"There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man,” Anthony said.
Knicks superstar Amar’e Stoudemire also spoke to reporters after the game, saying that the comment was harsh.
"It was more just talk," Stoudemire told ESPN. "More talk more than anything. Words are pretty sharp, so when you say certain things, it gets under your skin and it gets you a little angry. And that happens to the best of us. We've got to make sure that we keep our composure and see if we can beat a team like Boston."
In the most recent video, both men can be seen yelling and approaching each other aggressively as teammates and coaches move quickly to keep them apart.
Security was eventually able separate to the 6'8", 230 pound Anthony and the 6'11", 250 pound Garnett.
Anthony later told reporters, "We both have an understanding right now ... that situation was handled.”
