Knicks
star Carmelo Anthony has just been suspended for one game -- WITHOUT PAY -- for confronting Celtics player Kevin Garnett Monday night ... in an epic expletive-filled standoff.

TMZ posted the video ... showing 'Melo waiting for KG in the arena tunnel at Madison Square Garden ... after the two had been going at each other during the game.

'Melo had said KG insulted him on the court and said things that "crossed the line." There are reports that KG said Anthony's wife "tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios" ... but neither player has confirmed exactly what words were exchanged.

According to the NBA, Carmelo will serve his suspension on January 10th when the Knicks face the Pacers.

A rep for the league released a statement, saying, "There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable to confront an opponent after a game."

KG always talks his trash talking way to far, this wasent that bad, but if you google some of his other stuff he says, he can be an a-hole.

Oddly enough, Melo is one of the few NBA names I do know lol! I saw him on LaLa's wedding reality show. Love the both of them and the kid..


LOL @ remark to his wife. It's inappropriate, but not exactly an insult. Try as I may, I can't get pissed at a guy for defending his girl. TMZ - while I appreciate the story, that video SUCKED!

I feel like the only reason he would get that upset at that comment would be if he felt that there was an ounce of truth to it. There must be some issues within the relationship to where he is that insecure that he would go to that extent. Basketball players trash talk all the time. It is nothing new so being that he got so riled up over this, something must be happening. At the end of the day, KG sought out to get under Carmelo's skin and Carmelo allowed him to do just that. Not only did the Knicks lose, but now Carmelo's suspended without pay for his next game. He not only allowed him to affect his emotions but his money as well.
