Knicks using high-tech microphones to listen to Carmelo Anthony's in-game conversations

The Knicks are resorting to technology to spy on one of their own players during games

The Knicks are hoping to avoid more altercations like the one between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett, which resulted in Melo losing his mind and chasing Garnett out to the Celtics team bus.

Anthony was suspended for a day after his ridiculous outburst, which was reportedly prompted by Garnett saying that Melo's wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.

For starters... Melo's reaction was ridiculous.

Yes, he and his wife La La Vasquez are having some issues.

But if someone tells you that your wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios, particularly someone like notorious trash talker Kevin Garnett, there is only one proper reaction: Laughter.

If you don't laugh at something like that, then you're a complete tool, and you take things way too seriously. You also need to grow some thicker skin, because if that gets under your skin, then you have a serious problem.

They've hired a sound technician to point a microphone at him and basically eavesdrop on all of his on-court conversations.

So now, the next time Kevin Garnett compares Melo's wife to a breakfast cereal, the Knicks will know.

Or the next time someone else gets under Melo's skin with a hilariously ridiculous comment, the Knicks will know.

Believe it or not, this is apparently legal. I'm not sure what there is to prevent the Knicks from using similar technology to listen to the opposing team's huddle, or eavesdrop on the opposing coaches, but this is allowed somehow.

This has to be a little embarrassing for Melo, since he's basically being treated like he needs a babysitter.

But hey... based on his actions, maybe he really DOES need one.

Cancer Anthony. It's a shame he can't play Kansas anymore. He's not winning at this level.

Is that Aldous Snow holding the mic?

And I thought the picture was a joke until I read the original article. This whole thing is hilarious to me.
