What really happened between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett?

Carmelo Anthony Kevin Garnett

The Internet was abuzz yesterday over an on-court verbal exchange between NBA superstars Carmelo Anthony, of the NY Knicks, and Kevin Garnett, of the Boston Celtics, during a nationally televised game on Tuesday.

According to a source (who wasn’t within earshot), KG said something derogatory about ‘Melo’s estranged wife, LaLa Vazquez. Whatever he said led Anthony to the Celtics’ dressing room door after the game, where he shouted at several Celtics players. Videos uploaded to YouTube.com shows Anthony waiting near the Celtics team bus to confront KG. A phalanx of police and arena security stands between him and what could have been a rumble of epic proportions.

“There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man,” Anthony said when asked what KG said to upset him so. “I felt like he crossed the line.”

Anthony and KG later settled their differences. “They spoke on the phone and resolved it,” a source told the NY Post.

When reached for a comment, LaLa told a reporter that KG didn’t say anything about her.

The NBA is investigating what appears to be another case of professional ball players acting like street thugs in a controlled sporting environment. Talk of a suspension floated around the team practice facility on Tuesday. But Anthony dismissed the notion.

“Nothing happened for me to be suspended,” Anthony said. “I went and I wanted to talk to KG. … No altercations. It was just some words and a conversation that we needed to have.”

“I just wanted to know what was being said, where was all that coming from. What was said on the basketball court, where was it coming from?” Anthony said. “I just wanted to have a one-on-one conversation with him, talk it out like two grown men.”

KG is a notorious trash talker on the court. But sources tell Sandrarose.com that Anthony was a bit more sensitive than usual to the trash talk because he and his wife, LaLa, have separated.

“I lost my cool [Monday]. I accept that. But there are just certain things that push certain people’s buttons,” he told reporters. “You guys will never know what those certain things [are], and I would never sit and tell you what those certain things are or what was said [Monday], what was done. What’s done is done. Like I said, I accept that. I lost my composure [Monday]. For the most part, I’ve been very positive this season.”

Watch the video of the on-court altercation and Anthony waiting outside the Celtics dressing room.

      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
      I can tell you don’t watch any sports of almost any kind. This is exactly what they are. Maybe not thugs per se; but most if not all sports contain folks who were literally plucked off the playground, out the streets, etc and are groomed to play that sport. We not talking white/black even here. Even hockey has hard knock life stories and that is the whitest sport I can think of right now. Chris Stewart grew up poor as all kinds of hell. You in that environment…by circumstance most times you become “about that life”.

      So do not put this on the NBA. Please and all kinds of thanks.

      But in hockey the term “thug” is used for a player usually with less skill who is really only there to protect the more skilled players. It doesn’t hold the same connotation as it does when used to refer to black athletes regardless of backround. They don’t call Nascar dudes that run clear across a track to fight another driver thugs.

      There was an article not too long ago talking about how NASCAR is becoming a more white collar sport.

      I cant say that I saw that the last time I drove past the Charlotte Motor Speedway on a Sat. though. Just a bunch of rednecks to ME…But hey…
