Blog Photo - Melo Waits Outside for KG Like a Bully

After sharp elbows and heated words were exchanged between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett, the two not only had to be separated during the game, but even after the game.  Carmelo told KG that he would wait for him after the game was over and wait he did. 
 
Sources say that after the game was over, Melo was outside of the Celtics locker room screaming and absolutely livid.  He then exited the building where the visiting teams usually ext and waited for KG to come out.  After fellow teammate, Tyson Chandler, failed to restrain him inside the building, security had to restrain Melo outside of the building.
 
Comcast Sports Net New England has footage of Melo waiting by the Celtics bus.

 

When Garnett was asked about the altercation he said, “No, no, man. Just basketball. Just basketball.  Listen, heat of the battle, man, guys throw back and forth. He's trying to get his team to go; I'm trying to get my team to go. Both teams are colliding. Not to mention that it's the Knicks and the Celtics. Just what it is.”
 
Celtics head coach, Doc Rivers and Amar’e Stoudemire – a teammate of Melo’s – said that it was just basketball as well..  But if Melo and KG were just playing basketball, why was their version of basketball continuing even after the game was over?  A basketball games ends when one team wins on the court; it doesn't continue when players step off the court.

lmao
and he took that bait?  Footballs players talk about each other's sisters and wives and mamas all the time. It's called "trash talk".  The fact that Melo bought into that shows what a mental lightweight he is.  LOL
Tastes like honey nut cheerios... sounds like something a kid would say on a playground to another kid... a diss contest...  wow, now I really think Melo is dumber than I thought LMAO

KG is a dirty player and often crosses the line. Many players can't stand him and I'm sure he said and did things that would push the buttons of any man. I wouldn't mind seeing KG's jaw get rocked. I think he is a fake tough guy, who probably never had to fight a day in his life due to his size. Far from a Carmelo fan, but this time I can see his point of view. 

I like them both. KG talks crap to get in the opponents head, sometimes it works, but it doesn't bother me. And you're probably right. He probably would get rocked, and I would laugh.

I did find a poll that had garnett on it
1. Reggie Evans
2. Kevin Garnett
3. Metta World Peace
4. Jeff Foster
5. Chris Paul
6. Gerald Henderson
7.  Kevin Love
8. Kurt THomas
9. Anderson Varejao
10. Eduardo Najera

voted by players ... and to which they said
none of these guys hold a candle to 
Rick Mahorn
Bill Lambiere (both on same team)
Larry Bird
Dennis Rodman
Charles Barkley
John Stockton
Karl Malone

they all said the current top ten wouldn't 
make the all time top 10

Of course, Melo shouldn't take the bait
He let him take him out of his game.
Kind of like falling for the Rope A Dope

btw, I googled dirty players in NBA history and he didn't make the top 10... had names like Rick Mahorn, Karl Malone (elbows) Bill Lambier...

So I guess basketball should be the new Hockey... just let them punch each other in the face for a while.  In my humble opinion fighting has no place in sports, except boxing.  lol

It's just basketball til someone takes it too far. Melo isn't usually like that, and there is NO telling what KG said or did to enrage him like that. Sometimes you have to take it to the streets, lol. 

lol 
yeah well
they came down on Dwight for not going for the ball and kicked him out of the game
you have to maintain your composure...  You can't beat up a fan if they are yelling things at you
all game... Ron Artest can attest to that lol

Melo blew it, blew his cool.  Could be a real downer for their team.  Now everyone knows he is a loose cannon and will go after him with mind and physical games.

Ha! yeah...Uhh... ready for a fight, sure. Lurking outside, not usually. I stand semi-corrected, though.
