Celtics fans stayed in it, though, despite seeing the Knicks rush out to a commanding lead early in the game.
The best part was probably when chants of "Honey Nut Cheerios" were booming in the TD Garden, a reference to Kevin Garnett's infamous trash talk about Carmelo Anthony's wife LaLa Vasquez.
In case you missed it, here's the chant:
Celtics backup Jordan Crawford seemed to mention the incident to Carmelo after game 5, and LaLa responded in typical NBA wife fashion:
Try again. You on the bench for a reason. instagram.com/p/Y0QM3-xjT5/— LA LA(@lala) May 2, 2013
Apparently "actress" LaLa Vasquez forgets that she's the Jordan Crawford of acting. A D-list reality "star" is hardly in a place to criticize someone who actually made it to the highest level of his profession, no matter who she's married to.
Hopefully that's not the last we'll hear of the "Honey Nut Cheerios" chant. Celtics fans won't be around to do it anymore, but hopefully another team will pick up the mantle.
