TMZ has obtained exclusive VIDEO of the postgame screaming match between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony following Monday night's Celtics vs. Knicks game ... and it's clear both guys were ready to fight.

The incident went down in front of the Celtics team bus inside Madison Square Garden -- just a short time after things got physical between the two NBA superstars on the court.

In the video, both men can be seen yelling and approaching each other aggressively as security scrambles to keep them apart.

It's unclear exactly what the guys were saying to each other -- but we definitely heard someone use the n-word a couple of times.

Eventually, security was able to separate the big men ... and KG boarded the team bus.

After the game, Anthony told reporters it all started when Garnett spewed some trash talk during the game that "crossed a line."

"There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man,” Anthony said.

Who wins in a fight?

  • 'Melo
  • KG
He later explained, "We both have an understanding right now ... that situation was handled.”

For the record, Carmelo is 6'8", 230 lbs ... and KG is 6'11", 250 lbs. So, we gotta ask ...

The only way Melo wins a fight is if he hits the guy from behind and then runs. Melo has never.. NEVER, had a face-to-face fight. Never a man-to-man fight. He's douche' and a kitty cat. He's a scoring machine but that's it. Not all all tough. The only reason he "tried" to confront KG is because he knew he would never make it to him. But he also knew the camera's would be on him making him feel tough.

If Anthony wanted to hit him he would've. He was just doing a show . Time to move on. I wonder if she needs some milk for those Cheerios, if so I would like to donate.

TMZ asks...

"Where are all of the black volleyball players?"

AND the only photo of volleyball players that they show are black.

FOH, TMZ!

You have to try much harder when you choose to GO THERE. This is just lazy.
