Once people know what buttons to push to upset someone, they will push them every time to get a reaction. That’s what happened to NY Knicks star Carmelo Anthony after the Knicks lost game 5 to the Boston Celtics at the Garden on Wednesday, May 1. Boston bench rider Jordan Crawford approached Anthony and talked smack about La La Anthony.
Crawford reportedly said to Anthony, “My man [Kevin Garnett] f***ed your wife!”
After the game, La La took to her Twitter page and tweeted: “Try again. You on the bench for a reason.”
She also posted a message on Instagram.com that read: “STRONG WOMEN only intimidate weak men.”
In defense of his wife, Carmelo told reporters at a shootaround at Suffolk University this morning that La La has a right to be “upset’’ that her name was used by Crawford.
“I would be upset too if I was her,” Anthony said. “She’s always getting thrown into the mix of the Boston Celtic series. I would be upset if I was her. She’s her own person at the end of the day.”
Anthony was referring to an on-court incident in January when Garnett reportedly said something disparaging to Anthony about La La.
“It’s nonsense to me,” Anthony continued. “I don’t pay attention to it. I told you the other day it wasn’t worth you all typing that.”
